Their website above says it’s for healthcare professionals only, so enter at your own risk.
MedImmune is blatantly LYING on their website. They claim that ”
Approximately 16 to 63 million individuals in the US are infected with influenza every year,”
(Screenshot of website in case they change or remove it.)
This is a LIE. This is FRAUD. According to the CDC numbers last year alone, there were only 125,462 confirmed cases for the 2014-2015 flu season. http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6421a5.htm

#STOPTHELIES MedImmune! Tell the truth.
There is a VERY far cry between 125,000 and 6-63 million. You are creating numbers that simply do not exist.
They further lie about their product and claim ” In clinical studies with trivalent FluMist, transmission of vaccine viruses to close contacts has occurred only rarely. The current estimated risk of getting infected with vaccine virus after close contact with a person vaccinated with FluMist Quadrivalent is low (1%-2%). Because the viruses are weakened, infection is unlikely to result in influenza illness symptoms since the vaccine viruses have not been shown to mutate into typical or naturally occurring influenza viruses” https://www.flumistquadrivalent.com/hcp/myths-vs-facts
Yet their vaccine insert tells a VERY different story:
Up to 89% of those who received the vaccine shed up to 28 days. and they only kept track of shedding and transmission for 21 days. http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM294307.pdf
On top of that, they used a calculation model from the 1920’s to get their “estimated” findings on shedding…… Anyone else see anything wrong with these “facts?”
