Sidenote: Hope you're finding this useful? I have always been curious about this matter. And when I found very little quality information about it, I decided to share a part of what I've learned about it - which is why this article came to be written. Read on. Is The Nasal FluMist Vaccine Worth It?
By Lena Sanchez
The hype on TV and radio lately is pushing those between the
ages of 8 and 49 years to get the new FluMist nasal flu vaccine.
A live virus being sprayed up the nasal passages.
I'm sorry but if it's not safe for the younger or older ones is it
safe for anyone? This is a very dangerous vaccine and if you
should ever read the insert included with the vaccine you
would understand that.
In the FlumMist package insert labeled "PRECAUTIONS,"
the manufacturer states the following warning:
"FluMist recipients should avoid close contact with
immunocompromised individuals for at least 21 days."
How difficult will it be to be a hermit for 21 days after
receiving the FluMist? Impossible, and would you want to
stay away from everyone?
The warning is directed toward those living in the same
household with an immunocompromised person.
Danger lies in the on-going release of live viruses
throughout the community that may be a significant
risk to everyone who has a weakened immune system.
For instance; standing in line in a grocery store, movie
house or restaurant could be dangerous to your health if
your immune system is compromised and someone who
had their FluMist vaccine in the last three weeks
Compromised immune system can simple mean you
binged on chocolate last night and ate fast food for
lunch today then stopped at the store, exposing you
Hundreds of TV, radio and print advertisements, geared
toward scaring the pants off everyone, have been
designed to persuade everyone in the so-called safe age
range into getting the FluMist. Every time I turn around I
am hearing it on TV, seeing an ad in a magazine or hearing
it on radio! The campaign is the "most intense,
direct-to-consumer marketing campaign ever waged for a
vaccine," costing an estimated $25 million over the next two
and a half months. In addition, Wyeth, MedImmune's partner,
plans a three-year, $100 million campaign to encourage use
of the nasal flu vaccine among physicians.
If they can scare enough people into paying $70 a spray they
will come out with billions of dollars. The fact that so many
are paranoid of needles might pull off the worst health hazard
in history with the FluMist. Yes, many will probably fall for their
scare tactics. Then watch the death rate in the
immunocompromised community climb! Well you probably won't
be able to watch as I'm sure they will not tell you about it!
Don't buy into their scare tactics. It's much less expensive
and far more healthy to get your immune system in top shape
making it next to impossible for the flu bugs to invade your body!
