Skip to comments.Michael Savage: Don't trust feds on flu shot
Posted on 01/14/2013 7:09:47 PM PST by dynachrome
Asking listeners to put aside his political orientation for a moment, talk-radio host Michael Savage questioned the federal governments recommendation that citizens get a flu shot.
Did Harry Reid take a flu shot? Did Barack Obama take a flu shot? Did Barack Obamas lovely family take a flu shot? Did Joe Biden take a flu shot? Savage asked.
Which of the mandarins took the flu shot?
He explained that he was talking specifically about vaccines and was not advocating the avoidance of all pharmaceuticals.
Known for his many books on herbal medicines, Savage acknowledged he has benefited from an awful lot of life-saving regular medicines.
The Flu vaccine? he asked. No, I wouldnt take it.
Savage noted not everything your government tells you is true.

Thanks for the heads up, Spacebar.
Never had a flu shot, never had the flu.
Any evidence they didn't?
Our family always gets the flu shot, never had a single problem
Wish people like Savage would focus on real stuff, this anti-flu shot thing sounds like he’s veering off into conspiracy land.
I started getting them about 5 years ago after a pretty bad bout of the flu. Couldn’t remember the last time I had the flu before that.
I took a flu once in 2004 and was ill for months afterwards. My 2 aunts took the shot and developed shingles 2 weeks later.
I’ll take my chances with the flu.
I personally found that show boring but Mike chooses the topic. Sometimes you have to roll with the punches.
4 coworkers took the flu shot and got so sick. I do not think the Flu shot is for everyone. Everyone’s body chemical is different. For some, their body can handle it but for some it just makes it worse.
The few years I have not had a flu shot, I suffered with the flu. Go figure. Hope your luck continues. ;-)
Gonna have to disagree with him this time...
Yeah, I guess it’s not for everyone. Me and my family have taken it for years and no issues, but it sounds like you’ve had a different experience.
I still don’t like Savages approach. Instead of a rational discussion of the flu shot, it sounds like he’s turning it into a conspiracy thing.
you have 1 in 10 chance.
I agree. Have a close family member with PhD in both Pharmacology and Vet medicine. We don’t do vaccines.

This is a real issue and am glad Savage covered it - this is bald-faced tyranny. I am forced to have this shot or lose my job (I work remotely from the hospital and don’t take care of patients). The shots don’t work well enough to be given this elevation to mandatory compliance. Believe it or not, Drug companies actually do lie about effectiveness and risks for the vaccines. The Joint Commission that accredits hospitals entered into an alliance with GlaxoSmithKline in 2009 for a “Flu Challenge” - the Goal was to increase employee compliance in getting the flu shot for hospital workers. I call that a conflict of interest because GSK makes millions and the Joint Commission probably gets paid big money by GSK for the advertising. If you could just get everyone to wash their hands, that would have a greater effect on the patient’s safety and costs nothing.
Do they force the patients to have the flu shot before they will treat them? They are the ones with the compromised immune systems.
Yes we always had the conviction that God designed the body to fight infection but with the inside info on what is in the vaccines it was a very easy call to say no for our children. It is interesting to see all the hysteria about this latest flu vaccine when there is really no indication that it is a major killer. Sure people are running to the hospital but they are being whipped into a frenzy by the media.
Good questions. Did he have the answer? What makes him think they didn't?
