How to Prevent Corona Virus? Avoid the Flu Shot

I recently posted a third blog post on coronavirus (‘Corona Virus Part III: Say It Ain’t So!’ 2.26.20) I was not planning to write another one so soon but that changed when I saw the report in the New York Times. The headline in the February 25, 2020 article in the New York Times article reads, “How to prepare for the Coronavirus.” Right below the headline, in large font, it states, “Wash your hands. Keep a supply of medicines. Get a flu shot.”

 

I have no problems with the idea of washing hands. That is a good antimicrobial technique. As for keeping a supply of medications, the author of the article is making the point of having a 30-day supply of medications on hand in case you cannot go out to get them. I have no issue with that advice.

 

Get a flu shot? WHAT? WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

 

The writer states, “Infectious disease specialists strongly recommend flu vaccination. And the best protection for older people against bacterial pneumonia is, paradoxically, to vaccinate children…”

 

Folks, this is another example of FAKE NEWS! The flu vaccine has never been shown to protect against pneumonia.

 

I would suggest the opposite is true; those who get the flu vaccine will be more at risk for other non-flu-like infections such as coronavirus. (1) This idea that the flu vaccine disrupts the immune system’s ability to fight infections is nothing new. In fact, it was first described in 1960 in relation to the flu vaccine.

 

I wonder if the flu vaccine was mandated in China before the coronavirus epidemic began. That could explain why so many Chinese were infected with coronavirus.
It is important to keep in mind that the flu vaccine regularly fails most (usually over 90%) who receive it. Not only does it NOT protect you against the flu, it gives the immune system problems identifying other strains of the flu as well as different non-flu like viruses such as…coronavirus.

 

The take home message to help prevent coronavirus is…wash your hands and avoid the flu vaccine.

    So True, avoid the flu shot at all costs! Additionally the Armed Forces have published an update re flu vaccine has caused major “vaccine interference” for the Coronavirus. Sounds like it guarantees that people will get deadly pneumonia if they’re from the flu vaccine group. Thankfully my mother who was a health care worker for 44 years refused the “mandatory” flu shots on religious grounds. Sadly I think this has caused the explosion in deaths in Italy. Stay safe and get the world to bring back Dr Rifes work, zero reason his telescope is hidden in storage at London museum. Bring it out so we can see the actual virus, then find the frequency to kill it, easy, cheap and the moral thing to do right? So it will stay hidden as they continue there plan for mass extinction before the poles flip in thr next decade or so. Guess they don’t want billions of corpses ruining the view when they come out of there bunkers in west Texas, New Zealand, etc. Right Jeff Bezos?

    Great seminar yesterday, Dr. B.!! Thank you! I’d like to find out more about the Gingival & Tooth Apex ozone therapy. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Nusbaum for about 15 years and I’m also a patient of Dr. Rousseau and have been hoping and praying for a treatment for gum recision. I said “no thanks” to the pinhole procedure and I’m curious if this might be an option for me.

      Deb,
      Thanks.
      Dr. Rousseau uses ozone in his practice. As for the tooth ozone therapy–use ozone zap apply to the teeth/gum lines at bedtime nightly.

    Is it ok to take iodine if I have Hashimotos disease? I am on synthroid. Thank you.

      Brenda,
      Hashimoto’s forms from low iodine. I treat my Hashi patients with iodine. Please look at my iodine book where I explain this in more detail.

    Dr Brownstein would inhaling hydrogen peroxide help.
    I found this inhalation method on Earthclinic.com by a man named Bill Munro,
    Thanks, Kathy

      Kathy,
      I have been prescribing inhaled peroxide and iodine for years. Yes, that is a good therapy.

    I have seen reports that mandatory vaccinations were given right before the flu broke out in Wuhan.

    • Author Icon

      Deborah,
      That would be interesting to me. If you can forward those reports here, I would appreciate it. That is a burning question from me: Were the Chinese forced to get the flu vaccine in the fall of 2019??

        For information on a vaccine program that started in Wuhan on Dec 1(same day as the first death), see Del Bigtree’s Highwire from last Thu 2-27. May be found on FB or YouTube.

    I am a Nurse working at a hospital and it is a requirement of our jobs now they require us to get the flu vaccine..the only alternative if we don’t is being forced to wear a mask the Whole flu season…I would choose not to get the vaccine, but wearing a mask for months is torture!!

      Diana,
      Agree. It is torture and it is stupid. There is no justification for that. No research supports that position.

    The flu vaccine has never been shown to protect against pneumonia? The flu vaccine has never been shown to protect against the FLU! Vaccines are the biggest scam pulled on the public. And the sheep can’t understand why the cases of cancer, (especially childhood cancer) autoimmune diseases, autism, ADD, allergies, epilepsy, etc. have risen so drastically.

      Yes, I would also like to hear your opinion on this Dr. B and I’m being genuine. I don’t get the flu shot and have done what I could to get as much reliable data on the other vaccines but it can be tough.

        Chance,
        I will talk about the safety, efficacy and adverse effects associated with vaccines.

    Can somebody truly believe the pharmaceutical industry cares about people’s health ? Obviously, they only care about people’s money. It is business. I never get the flu shot and I have never been sick with the flu. Follow your inner guidance, your own sense of truth. Taking the road less traveled is quite rewarding.

      Yes, it was really crowded in the grocery stores over the weekend. Not sure why anyone would feel that going to a location with a lot of crowds would make sense if you’re fearing a lethal contagion.

    Guess I’m fairly safe since I haven’t had a flue shot in about 35 years and seldom attract the flu. I am not interested in being poisoned by Big Pharma. In fact, passing out shots and vaccines like they are candy, ensures the medical community a steady supply of patients to “disease manage” years and years down the road. That is their game plan, not prevention but intervention. They are destroying your natural immune system with this junk.

    A. A study published in the March 1, 2017, issue of The Journal of Infectious Diseases investigated whether getting an annual vaccination against influenza (flu) can weaken your body’s natural ability to protect itself from the disease. Past studies have raised similar concerns. Researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway followed 250 health care workers. Some of them got a flu vaccination every year from 2009 through 2013. The others only received the vaccine once in 2009 and not in the years from 2010 to 2013. The researchers then took blood samples before the influenza season (and before people were vaccinated that season), from the members of both groups and looked at different markers to gauge how well their immune systems would respond to the influenza virus. They found that getting an annual flu vaccination did not weaken the immune system. As a group, the people who got the flu shot annually appeared to have a better immune response to influenza than those vaccinated only once.

      Robert,
      THis study did find the flu shot did not result in a negative response to ONE type of flu–Influenza A (H1N1) but did not show the same result with other strains. Furthermore, there was data that showed among individuals vaccinated in the current season, vaccine effectiveness was lower among those with more than 2 prior doses when compared to those who did not receive the vaccine or received 1–2 prior doses. To sum it up, the data suggested that there was a suggestion that vaccine effectiveness waned with greater than 2 previous vaccinations compared to no vaccination or those with 1-2 vaccinations. Also, the sample sizes in this study were very low which can skew the data. A 50% relative risk decline is nothing to celebrate–that means the therapy fails the majority who receives it.
      The flu vaccine mutates yearly. The flu shot numbers are abysmal by anyone’s standards. For that reason alone, it should be avoided. When there is data that the flu vaccine can cause other viral illnesses to be more severe and prevalent this should give anyone pause before allowing it to be injected into themselves.

    What are your thoughts regarding the vaccines they are currently developing to fight coronavirus? Is it safe? According to the news reports the virus is a viral infection, can the vaccine help with a viral infection?

      Magicot,
      As we find out yearly with the flu vaccine’s ineffectiveness, I would not hold my breath here.

        Dr. B,
        What are your thoughts on traveling at this point? Is there any reason to avoid flights? I have two trips coming up and must admit, I’m a bit nervous. Thank you!

        Karen

          Karen,
          I see no need to alter travel plans in the US. Outside the US? I would be wary. I would not be so concerned about coronavirus if I was taking the appropriate supplements. My major concern would be getting quarantined somewhere or getting a cold and not being allowed to fly. Would I go to Europe right now? No. Would I travel in the US? Yes.

    Dr Brownstein, thank you for staying on top of the corona virus issue. People are taking this seriously and fear is building in communities across the county. Giving people practical advise about what to do to prepare is so important. Also, dispelling the fake news and incorrect advise, such as “getting the flu shot,” is also important.
