    Since all these stories trying to scare us about flu deaths picture the flu vaccine, are people dying from the vaccine? Just curious….

    I think its time to come clean with the public. Just HOW MANY of these deaths are folks who also had the vaccine? Afraid to release the numbers? Does Big Phama not want us to hear that, maybe, perhaps, 90% of the deaths are also folks who got their flue shot? Hmm? Why not tell us???

    What they don’t say, in this article and others, is weather these people had other physical problems that would make them high risk.
