He died suddenly on Monday, because of some complications that were related to the flu. Rattray was only 37 years old and he just finished his training to be a bus driver within the last week. Rattray was a healthy person and he had his flu shot this year. Everyone who bought a hot dog from him in downtown Spokane was on a first-name basis with him.
He was saving money so he can go to Graduate School, and he traveled to Sudan occasionally, being an expert on the people who lived there.
Paul Hoffman, a training instructor with STA, had been buying hot dogs from Rattray for as long as he can remember. Hoffman ended up recruiting Rattray to work for STA. “You wouldn’t think a hot dog guy would have such an impact … but you can feel it. It’s palpable. He was just a stellar student, an exemplary student, an awesome driver. He was on that course to be a legend among drivers. A firm grip.” – Hoffman said.
This season, six people have died with flu-related illnesses – including three since Jan. 13. Rattray was generally healthy and had flu shot this year.
5 year old Kiera Driscoll died from cardiac arrest due to influenza
Another victim of the “deadly” flu is Kiera Driscoll. She is the fourth child in Clark County that has died as a result of the flu. According to the officials, 5-year-old girl died from cardiac arrest due to influenza A. Her father, Patrick, said his daughter developed a cough and fever on Sunday.
She was taken to a clinic on Monday and the doctors’ prescribed her steroids and a nebulizer. She collapsed later that day, and his wife performed CPR on Kiera until the doctors arrived. The little girl later died. Her father said that Kiera had been vaccinated against the flu. He said doctors confirmed that Kiera had contracted the same strain for which she had been vaccinated.
The most dangerous vaccine in America so far is the annual flu vaccine, if you examine the government reports on settlements awarded to people injured or killed by vaccines.
Is the Science Behind Flu Vaccines Exempt from Scrutiny?
What if one healthy person dies from the flu after receiving the flu vaccine? Isn’t that enough for an investigation into the safety of flu vaccines and the science behind them? If couple of people dies from flu after receiving the flu vaccine and the health officials’ call that a “rare” situation does that not qualify as an “epidemic”? More people have now died from the flu after the flu shot in the United States than from Ebola.
Dr. Mark Geier is the doctor who sounded the alarm on the supposed science behind the flu vaccine, that people should receive it annually. Dr. Mark Geier explains the fraud behind the flu vaccine. He says that he is NOT anti-vaccine person. Dr. Mark Geier is an MD and has a PhD in genetics. He is working almost 10 years at the National Institute of Health, and was a professor at Johns Hopkins University as a geneticist. He is also the author of over 150 publications.
Dr. Mark Geier worked on vaccine safety and efficacy for more than 30 years. Dr. Mark Geier together with other four scientists was working hard and trying to replace the DTP vaccine. The DTP vaccine caused every child to become sick with a high fever at the same time of vaccination. He wanted to replace DTP vaccine with DTaP vaccine, which is attenuated vaccine and causes illness due to fever in only 3 % of those who were vaccinated.
Dr. Mark Geier explains that the CDC does not follow the law for vaccines in requiring long-term safety testing for the flu vaccine like they do with other vaccines, as it is impossible to test a vaccine that changes every year. He also explains that the flu vaccine causes Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and that the flu shot is not very effective in preventing the flu.
He also says that the flu vaccine is basically an experimental vaccine, that change every year and they want to give out to 300 million people every year. There are also no studies that can prove the safety of giving the flu vaccine to the same person every year. However, Dr. Geier points out that the CDC is in the business of distributing flu vaccines, because they represent 300 million doses per year, whereas all the childhood vaccines together only number 20 million.
The main thing that Dr. Mark Geier wants to explain is that flu is “the wrong thing to vaccinate against” because you have to keep re-vaccinating against it every year, unlike other infectious diseases, such as smallpox, that are only vaccinated for once, in your childhood. He also points out how ridiculous it is spend millions and millions of dollars on a vaccine that might, at its best, save about 100 lives a year, when there are far more serious problems causing death that are more worthy of that kind of expenditure.
