Children's flu vaccine weakens immune system

Children with a weakened immune system are supposed to have a flu vaccine every year - but the jab could be making them more vulnerable to deadlier viruses and epidemics

Children with a weakened immune system are supposed to have a flu vaccine every year - but the jab could be making them more vulnerable to deadlier viruses and epidemics.
The standard flu vaccine compromises their immune system further, and interferes with its production of killer T-cells, which is the body's natural defence against viruses.
Scientists from the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam discovered that T-cell levels were far higher in children who had not been given the annual vaccine.
They fear that routine vaccination could be creating a generation of children that are vulnerable to more virulent flu outbreaks and pandemics.
