Many chiropractic physicians in the United States disagree with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) call for vaccination and advise their patients against getting the flu shot. Besides chiropractic advice, many patients who choose not to get vaccinated highlight the use of toxic vaccine ingredients as one of the reasons for avoiding the shot.
Dr. Peter Hanson, a chiropractor in Washington state, believes the flu vaccine to be largely ineffective. He also thinks that it may be more dangerous than the flu. He takes the stance that many chiropractors take on the vaccine. On his website, Dr. Hanson states, “If the vaccine does not prove to be effective the way it is professed to perform, then maybe the risk of the getting the flu shot is not worth the non-existent benefit of the vaccine.”
Dr. Aaron Rossell, a California chiropractor, told the New York Daily News that the bulk of his patients choose not to get the flu vaccine partly because he discourages it. In an email he said, “We recommend the approach that was so successful during the pandemic [OF 1917-1918]; routine preventative care and if symptomatic, an intensive course of care with supportive nutrition, homeopathics, herbs and or other types of therapies.”
Approximately 22 million Americans see a chiropractor at least once a year. Melissa Lee, a spokesperson for the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), told the Daily News that the organization does not have a specific policy on the flu vaccine. She also said that it refers its members to its overall policy on vaccinations if they ask for guidance on what to advise patients.
The ACA's policy states, “Since the scientific community acknowledges that the use of vaccines is not without risk, the American Chiropractic Association supports each individual's right to freedom of choice in his/her own health care based on an informed awareness of the benefits and possible adverse effects of vaccination,” and that, “The ACA is supportive of a conscience clause or waiver in compulsory vaccination laws thereby maintaining an individual's right to freedom of choice in health care matters and providing an alternative elective course of action regarding vaccination.”
The US and Canada are the only two countries that encourage everyone older than 6 months to get the flu vaccine. The flu has not hit Europe as hard as it has hit the US. See: http://www.examiner.com/article/us-and-canada-only-countries-that-recommend-flu-vaccine-for-nearly-everyone
CDC researchers have also recently admitted that some vaccinated persons will be infected with the flu. See: http://www.examiner.com/article/cdc-researchers-admit-that-some-vaccinated-persons-will-be-infected-with-flu
