    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;A simple picture is currently portrayed about the influenza vaccine. The reality is far more complex.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Influenza vaccines cause anti-influenza allergy, aeroallergen allergy and allergic asthma. Anti-influenza allergy causes vaccine ineffectiveness due to IgE neutralizing vaccine antigens. Allergy to influenza, increases morbidity and mortality when a person is eventually infected by the strain due to inevitable vaccine failure (wrong strain chosen by WHO, antigenic drift between wild and vaccine strains, IgE mediated antigen neutralization, etc.).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;When the vaccine works, it provides temporary immunity at the expense of allergy, autoimmunity, cancer and loss of long term protection against influenza.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;When the flu vaccine &amp;quot;works&amp;quot;, it makes the population more dependent on WHO making the right strain selection every time and no antigenic drift between wild and vaccine strains. We are creating a more vulnerable population (allergic asthma to HA and no natural influenza protection) that is dependent on an unreliable vaccine.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Influenza vaccine is therefore contributing to increasing influenza related morbidity and mortality.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We need a new influenza control policy redesigned from scratch to address the big picture.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
