Here we go again; big pharma doing a study and this and this happens...and there solution to this problem is to add adjuvants to the vaccine...this is one of my RUH ROH moments..off to study today

His study, which was funded by drugs firm Novartis, analysed reactions to vaccines during the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 flu seasons in four countries.

The data showed that among 7,000 adults over the age 65, statin users had a significantly reduced immune response to the vaccines.

In the Emory University study, the authors looked at data from 140,000 people collected from 2002 to 2011.

They found that vaccines were not as effective at preventing serious respiratory illness among patients taking statins.

If the results are confirmed, changing the make-up of flu vaccination could stop the problem. That would probably require vaccines to use ‘adjuvants’ - substances which would boost its effect.
