Nursing Home Test; 'Didn't find' proof immunization stops virus

The National Post is now on Facebook. Join our fan community today.

A new Canadian-led study has added to a simmering scientific dispute over flu-shot campaigns, concluding that immunizing nursing-home workers does nothing to cut the number of confirmed influenza cases among the homes' elderly residents.

Coming at the end of the largest flu-vaccination campaign in Canadian history, the review of previous studies calls for stepped-up research into alternative, lower-tech ways to combat the virus, such as improved hand washing.

"What troubled us is that [shots] had no effect on laboratory-confirmed influenza," said Dr. Roger Thomas of the University of Calgary, lead author of the paper published by the respected Cochrane Library.

"What we were looking for is proof that influenza ... is decreased. Didn't find it. We looked for proof that pneumonia is reduced. Didn't find it. We looked for proof deaths from pneumonia are reduced. Didn't find it."

Yep major national newspaper. Similar to US Today!

Gotta like it .

I hope my son's biology teacher reads this article. He wrote an essay a month ago on the reasons for not taking the swine flu shot.. I thought he had done an excellent job.

Anyways she only gave him a 65 because she said his references were not from scientific sources, only peoples' opinions.

The best part of it though was she allowed Jeremy to present his essay to the class along with a couple of excellent you tube vids. The classmates really got an eye opener and were thanking him for bringing the information out in the open. Can't ask for anything more than that I guess.
