LETTER: Avoid the shot
Congratulations to Jennifer Craig for choosing not to be vaccinated. According to Dr. Kendall’s letter the effective rate for the vaccination is about 59%.
If everyone in BC got vaccinated, there is a chance that 1,845,000 people may still get the flu.
Doesn’t seem to be very cost effective, and where would you find the beds? Now this is based on a population of BC from the latest census. If only 75 to 375 infants and toddlers are hospitalized per year, it doesn’t seem to be an epidemic. How many of them have been vaccinated?
If it is such a small number, why add mercury to their small bodies. Seemingly it is not safe for the rest of us, accordingly to the concern of disposing mercury light bulbs.
In this regard, recently in the news, it was stated that the amount of mercury in a hospital thermometer if dropped into a container the size of five Olympic swimming pools would be toxic to the human body.
If that’s the case, why take a chance.
And we would even mention meningitis.
