You Will Be the Last Generation to Spread My Gospel to All Peoples
MARCH 20, 2017 7:05 PM BY GLYNDA LOMAX
Great is My Peace upon My people. Great is My Peace upon you in this time.
It is this peace that will sustain you as the end comes and you see My Word fulfilled, to the last jot and tittle.
You have been chosen for this time, and empowered to do what you must do. You are My Voice in the earth, and I call the heathen to Myself through you.
You will be the last generation to spread My Gospel to all peoples. The end comes quickly, and with it comes war, disease and famine. Pray to be counted worthy to escape that which is to come, but work while it is day, My people. Work while it is yet day, for the darkness approaches and it will overtake the earth quickly when it arrives.

Prophetic Word Given To Ms. Bunny H. not Jeff On 3/19-20/2017—
WOE WOE WOE
WOE WOE WOE
Woe to the immoral, Woe to the wicked, Woe to the adulterer, Woe to the drunkard, Woe to the drug addict, Woe to those who defile My temple (their bodies), Woe to the fornicators, Woe to the filthy, Woe to those who blasphemy, Woe to the idolater, Woe to the false preachers, Woe to the false prophet, Woe to the murderers, Woe to the thieves, Woe to the liars, Woe to those I have not sent.
My daughter, write these words down:
This nation is so vile, so repugnant, its stench reaches the heavens. I ABHOR this nation! I blessed this nation so that My name would be known and I would be glorified but instead My people have profaned My temple, My Word. They wallow in their filth. They detest my righteous ways. They have turned their backs to Me: I will laugh at their calamity.
Their unbelief that I am who I say I am will be their downfall. The prideful in this nation I will bring low. I will break their bows, I will completely destroy them. I raise up kingdoms. I take down kingdoms.
The Roaring Lion of Judah is getting ready to roar! Most are not prepared for what is to befall this nation. Many profess they are saved yet they are still lost if there is no evidence of change in their lives. I judge all men by their fruit, whether it is good to everlasting life or whether it is to be burned in the fire. Many lives hang in the balance and if they do not repent and lament, they too, will end up as chaff thrown into the lake of fire.
Is this MY desire? NO! For I desire all to be saved but this will not be so. Most have chosen the broad path to destruction, eternal damnation. They will follow the father of lies to their demise. My heart is saddened that this will be their final resting place of no rest because they rejected my offer of salvation. This is not what I wanted for them but they have chosen this themselves. Soon the door will be closed and the books will be sealed. I am judging my children’s deeds and reading their hearts. I am watching all very closely!
My children, I AM THE GREAT I AM! Remember, I know you better than you know yourselves. I made you in My image. It is why I came down to live as man, to die for you, to carry your sins away. Does this mean you have free license to continue in sin? God Forbid! Why do you crucify me over and over again to your shame?
My children, the clock is ticking. Make your decision now whom you will follow for tomorrow may never come. Only I know the day and hour for each one of you. Return to me or perish! My arms are open wide to receive you unto me but you must choose. I am the One who loved you first. Will you love Me enough to return to Me?
To the ones who have chosen Me and given me their hearts, you are my beloved. What can man do to you when you have Me? You are the salt of the earth to a dying world. Continue to speak My truth. Abide in Me and I will continue to abide in you. My love is forever. I AM is eternal and you are eternally mine if you do not walk away as judgments fall! Keep your eyes on Me! I am your shield; I am your refuge in the midst of the storm.
Choose Me, Seek Me First,
Yeshua Ha Mashiach
Matthew 20 -22 KJV 20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
James 1:12-16 (KJV) 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. 16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
I was also told to include Isaiah 29 and to read the whole chapter.
There Was an Instantaneous Shift and Breakthrough and the Enemy was Knocked Completely Off His Feet
MARCH 20, 2017 5:40 AM BY LANA VAWSER
I felt the Lord saying that the enemy has overplayed his hand. The enemy has been assaulting many with a level of opposition and force that they have not experienced before, but in that place, the enemy is revealing where God is about to break through, the area where the Spirit of God is about to do a powerful work.
The opposite of what the enemy has been saying, is what God is about to do. Where he is saying “no provision”, God is declaring provision. Where he is saying “fear, fear, fear”, God is declaring you are moving into a whole new season of knowing His love and moving in courage and boldness. Where he is saying, the breakthrough is so far away, God is decreeing “it is IMMINENT”. Where he is saying “the future is dark and will remain dark”, God is saying “Your best and brightest days are ahead. Where he is saying “delay”, God is saying “acceleration over hindrances.” Where he is saying “you have been forgotten”, God is declaring “I remember and am coming through for you.” Where he is saying “this is too hard for you”, God is decreeing “You shall know My empowerment, strength and grace in new and fresh ways.”
I have had this sense that the enemy has been mocking and laughing because he thinks he was won a victory or about to win a victory in the lives of many believers as they have struggled to keep standing and have become so weary from the battle, but I felt the Lord say “The enemy is now being reminded of his DEFEAT.”
The Lord is training His people in how to war from the place of being seated in heavenly places with Him. (Ephesians 2:6) He is training His people to live offensively, rather than defensively. He is training His people to live as winged warriors!
Those who live and move from a third heaven perspective; His perspective. That’s why the Lord is highlighting the power of decree strongly right now. His Word and what He is prophesying over you is SO powerful! Use it, declare it in this season as you move forward into greater victory and birthing.
So in this season of “coming up higher” God is training us to stand. But many have become weary in the battle. Many have found it so hard to continue standing. This is where God is moving with His mighty hand, His royal flush! He is breaking the attempts of the enemy and strengthening you, so you can take your position again and continue your training and all He has for you. God is now doing what only HE can do for you!
“Not by night, nor by power, but by My Spirit” says the Lord (Zechariah 4:6)
The enemy has been hitting believers in so many directions, but that is being broken off and now change and blessing, increase, refreshment and favor, shall chase you down in every direction.
Keep your eyes on Jesus! I know it’s dark for many of you, but hold on! Wait for Him! His “royal flush” is upon you! His triumphant hand of breakthrough is upon you, to move and set you free and release you into your new day of VICTORY and INCREASE!
On March 1st, The Winds of Change Brought a New Direction in the Earth
March 20, 2017 8:14 pm By Rev Susan O’Marra
The Trade Winds from Heaven bring forth fresh life and vision and breath to the saints who have been crying out from the stress of the past season, just as it did in Israel, as shown in the following scripture passage.
13 When you cry out, let your [rabble] collection of idols deliver you! But the wind shall take them all, a breath shall carry them away. But he who takes refuge in Me shall possess the land [Judea] and shall inherit My holy mountain [Zion, also the heavenly inheritance and the spiritual Zion].
14 And the word of One shall go forth, “Cast up, cast up, prepare the way! Take up the stumbling block out of the way [of the spiritual return] of My people.”
15 For thus says the high and lofty One—He Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent [bruised with sorrow for sin].” (Isaiah 57:13-15)
The key is to recognize what the Lord is doing in the Spirit, and to rise up in faith, and receive the breath from Heaven. This is an hour to stand in His Counsels and to inquire as to what we must do to counteract what the enemy has done to see the fullness of what the Father has set in motion to be fully accomplished. Without the strategies released to us right now, we will not be doing the right thing to defeat the demonic fog and forces arrayed against us. Its time to rout them fully out!
A great cleansing has begun. The Trade Winds of the Spirit will remove all that the enemy has sown. Whether it is in the minds and hearts and lives of His people, or in the regions of the earth. Hearts and motives will be laid bare by the winds of the angels wings. The season of trading on the Kingdom for personal gain has come to an end. Nothing will hinder the coming harvest birth!
Fresh vision shall be restored as we gather into the emerging Counsels of the Lord. It’s time to recognize that we cannot accomplish anything without heeding the instructions of the Lord to us. The exposure and removal of all false counsel and soulish purposes have begun. The Father is establishing His Holy Counsels in regions and nations right now to give clarity and insights to the Body of Christ so they can rise up into their various places and function as the Body of Christ.
18 “But who [among them] has stood in the council of the Lord, That he would perceive and hear His word? Who has marked His word [noticing and observing and paying attention to it] and has [actually] heard it?
19 “Behold, the tempest of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, A whirling tempest; It will whirl and burst on the heads of the wicked.
20 “The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has set in motion and accomplished the thoughts and intentions of His heart; In the last days you will clearly understand it.
21 “I did not send [these counterfeit] prophets, Yet they ran; I did not speak to them, Yet they prophesied.
22 “But if they had stood in My council, Then they would have caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned My people from their evil way And from the evil of their decisions and deeds. (Jeremiah 23:18-22)
The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The thoughts and plans of His heart through all generations. (Psalms 33:11)
Dumitru Duduman: China and Russia Will Attack America
SEPTEMBER 3, 2013 9:40 PM BY JAMES BAILEY
In April 1996, prophetic Christian minister Dumitru Duduman received a vision of a coming attack on America coming from both China and Russia. Dumitru Duduman was a Romanian native who came to America and founded the Hand of Help Ministries. He received many visions and dreams during his life. He went home to be with the Lord in May 1997.
The vision shared below is just one of many that Dumitru Duduman received. A complete list of his prophecies are available on the Hand of Help website, including the transcript of each one. Also included there are the prophetic words received by his grandson, Michael Boldea.
“I Have A Controversy With America”
MARCH 28, 2017 2:03 AM BY ALISON POUND
 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
 Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.
 Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
 They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
 And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
 For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.
 Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.
 My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
 They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
 I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.
 Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Beth-aven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.
 For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
 Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
 Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.
 The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
God Provides for His People During Total Grid Down
MARCH 26, 2017 9:08 PM BY MICHAEL FURMAN
The second home I visited was the exact same situation, and so was the third, and fourth, and so on down the block, total and complete despair, house after house, even entire neighborhoods. Then suddenly I came to a house that was dimly lit, as with a single candle. As I entered, I felt an overwhelming peace; a real presence of the Lord there, saturating every cubic foot of space in the entire house. I knew this place to be home of a Christian family. There was an air of intense joy and peace. Everyone in the home was bubbling with exuberance, even though there was no food to offer the children or themselves, and no heat in the house, the parents gave thanks to God anyway.
It was very difficult to see anything, however, the mother preceded to place a fine table cloth on the table and set it with plates, bowls, silverware, and glasses. The rest of the family gathered at the table, seating themselves as always–even though there was no food. The father of the home gave thanks for the meal as everybody bowed their heads in reverence. Then suddenly, light appeared in the room–one could not tell where the light was coming from. The entire family opened their eyes, and to their delight (but not to their surprise), piping hot food of quite an assortment was there on their plates and in their bowls. They all gave thanks to God all the more. As they did the room became radiant with heat; and for that matter the entire house. The light illuminating the room was also becoming brighter and brighter. The more they praised God, the warmer and brighter it became.
God miraculously blessed the people of this Christian home that exercised great faith in God’s ability, so they would not be cold and hungry. I saw other homes like this one, but they were few in number. One thing that was so blatantly obvious was the vast distinction between the God fearing Christian people and the unbelievers. There were no gray areas; no lukewarmness. The Bible believing Christians greatly exemplified their faith by their daily lives, and the ungodly were living in total hopelessness and despair.
The last house I entered was a home of indescribable despicable evil. A cold sinking and sickening feeling enveloped me as I entered. This place was the coldest and darkest of them all, and for good reason. This was a dwelling of demons.
There was a single individual sitting in a darkened room, seemingly a middle aged woman. I was in an adjacent room, but I immediately felt a very wicked presence emanating from the other room even before I turned to look inside. This person was different from all the others in many respects. First, she was looking right at me the whole time and was totally aware of my presence as soon as I entered the house. Second, the expression on her face was one of utter hate, anger, and resentment. She wanted nothing but my death. In fact, she made many attempts at causing me great harm; each time failing miserably and becoming more frustrated. She never got up from her chair. Instead, she used demonic powers to manipulate objects in various rooms–blunt objects and mechanical devices. Recognizing the power I had in me (the Holy Spirit) was far greater, she eventually gave up. At that point I left the house.
At the very end, I found myself in an undisclosed and unrecognizable location, but the location was inconsequential and totally irrelevant. The important things were the characteristics of this place. I saw round smooth stones lying neatly on the ground evenly spaced. What appeared to be very sharp, jagged stones were suspended in midair above the smooth stones. All of a sudden, what seemed to be concrete poured from above, filling in all the gaps of the smooth stones until they were all cemented together. None of the jagged stones were even touched by the concrete or bothered in any way. The cemented smooth stones formed a solid floor–completely immovable.
At this point I woke up, finding myself sweating and winded, as though I actually experienced this whole ordeal. As I sat up in bed, I contemplated the meaning of the smooth and jagged stones. Also, “what exactly did the cement symbolize”, I thought to myself. It could not have been two seconds before I had the interpretation. The smooth stones represented the unbelieving world that rejected Christ; the jagged stones represented the true believers and followers of Jesus. The cement represented God’s divine judgment that will be poured out on the whole earth in the future. Just as the cement that filled in the gaps making a solid floor, the ungodly will not be able to escape God’s judgment. They reach the point of no return where they can no longer be saved. They are condemned for eternity. However, the righteous, godly people will not be harmed in any way by God’s wrath.
8 But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him”. (1 Thessalonians 5:8-10)
The main thrust of what God was showing me through this dream was God’s love, mercy, and provision for the believer, and the utter hopelessness of those who have rejected Christ and have delighted in wickedness. Another point He was making in this “last days” scenario was the vast “distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not”.
17 “On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him.
18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not”. (Malachi 3:17-18)
“Let Me tell you about this famine that is coming to America.”
MARCH 26, 2017 8:15 PM BY GLYNDA LOMAX
I was up in the wee hours praying on Friday, and the Lord said, “Let me tell you about this famine that is coming to America.”
I grabbed my phone and started typing, as I had not yet gotten out of bed.
“I am the Bread of Life, but many people do not even know Me. I am able to feed my own out of thin air, just as I fed them with manna long ago. There was no food in the desert and there were many mouths to feed, but I fed them easily even through years of famine in areas all around them. I shall do that again for those who know Me well. Others will do without. My people will be persecuted in that time because they will radiate health even as those all around them die.
The physical condition of people then will reflect the spiritual. If they are rich in My Word, if My Word abides in them, they will be well fed. If there is none of My Word in them there will also be no food in them.”
Note: I saw then that the famine is to help unbelievers come to know Him. He is showing them He is truly the Bread of Life. These are those who have refused in the face of all else to turn to Him. The famine is actually mercy for those who still don’t know Him at this point.
“Many shall want to serve Me in that time when they realize I am providing for My own what they cannot get for themselves, but there will also be a famine of My Word and great and harsh persecution of those who refuse to deny Me, so learning of Me then will be almost impossible.
You are near the end, My children and events are speeding up. I am anxious to bring you home to Me. Stand firm and do not turn back from your faith, for you are nearly home and your reward shall be very great in heaven. Do not sell your birthright for a bowl of food in that time.”

9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
White Slavery is Coming to America
MARCH 24, 2017 9:31 AM BY GLYNDA LOMAX
Lord, what is this coming that I see? Please give us a word about this.
“White slavery is coming to America. Have you no part in it, My people, for I will not hold those guiltless who do. There is much innocent blood spilled on this land, and more bloodshed is coming.
An evil Spirit of Slavery is planned by the enemy for the time of lawlessness coming to the land of America. When this spirit is released, atrocities will be committed upon those taken captive.
My people, pray for much mercy in this time, for the evil that will prevail in your land as this happens will be very great, and it will be widespread. Desperation will fill the hearts of all in the land as they realize America is destroyed, and depravity will be evident in all the land.
Those left in this time will have little hope of any kind. Pray you to be counted worthy to escape all that is to come.”
21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. (Matthew 5:21-24)
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. (Matthew 24:10-13)
An exposure is coming and it will rock the House of God.
MARCH 23, 2017 11:26 PM BY MARTY BREEDEN
Even those who have served God and still do, even those who have repented for their sins, even those among the redeemed who have in the past allowed themselves to dabble and look upon things forbidden by the spirit of God, sins they have repented of and have been forgiven by God… even those sins will be brought forth by dark powers to embarrass and dishonor the people and ministers of God and to cause confusion. For the word of God calls satan the accuser of the brethren and accuse he will.
Marriages, pastors, and leadership will all be challenged as a revealing takes place. Godly and Biblical discernment will be required to know and understand that which is God calling for repentance or the enemy bringing railing accusations to the body of Christ.
What should we do?
- First, FLEE things of the flesh and flee youthful lust.
- Second, REPENT and seek Godly counsel and advice.
- Third, weep between the porch and the altar to begin to fully be prepared to receive and extend the Grace and Mercy of God.
The Bible instructs us to make no provision for the things of the flesh (Romans 13:14) and to seek the Lord while He may be found (Isaiah 55:6).
“Darkness Lurks Behind the Governments You Trust”
MARCH 20, 2017 5:28 AM BY GLYNDA LOMAX
Know in this time that what you see is not what is. Darkness lurks behind the governments you trust. Much evil is planned and will soon be released. Snares will be set for My people as the enemy’s plans are unleashed. Many who are Mine will die in this time and come home to Me, but this is My mercy on them. Those who are lukewarm will be left on the earth that their faith may be refined.
Guard your hearts, My children, for evil abounds as never before. Be careful when you think you stand, lest you fall and lose your faith.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
God Healing Hearts of Those Who Have Endured Long Barren Season
MARCH 21, 2017 8:38 AM BY ANITA ALEXANDER
Sometimes we feel wooed by God’s promises, but then we feel rejected by the unfulfillment of those promises. God wants to heal that rejection because it is actually not true. God has a perfect time for everything to take place.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when it is fulfilled it makes a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12).
It’s not really deferred in God’s terms. It is deferred in our terms.
The Lord is more interested in the state of our heart than the miracle of our promise. He wants to bring healing to the heart for this last season, which has taken a toll. It has actually in some ways even affected your relationship with the Lord. I am not speaking to everyone, but I believe there is a people out there who have really been through the mill. They have really been contending with the Lord and they have stuck through, but by the skin of their teeth.
The Lord has called you like a woman forsaken, grieved in spirit and heart sore. It looks like there has been abandonment, like God has left you high and dry. God is calling out those roots of abandonment in this season because He wants to heal the effects of abandonment. We see others around us bearing fruit and we wonder what is so wrong with me that I cannot bear fruit?
God is saying, “That is a lie. I want to deal with those lies that the enemy has tried to trick you into believing. I have not for sake in you or abandoned you. You are accepted and beloved.”
I want to encourage you that your day of breakthrough is upon you. You’re not going to be barren anymore. You’re actually going to bear more fruit then if you would have just born it naturally.
Should I Get the Flu Shot? CDC Data Raise Concerns
In February the CDC revealed that the 2014-2015 influenza vaccine had an efficacy rate of only 19 percent. If that was not bad enough, in June the CDC’s committee that advises on immunization practices announced that nasal spray flu vaccines should not be used in the 2016-2017 flu season because, in the CDC’s own words, “no protective benefit could be measured” from taking them.
Indeed, numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies have shown that the flu vaccine is not effective either at reducing the flu or reducing flu-related deaths.
When a team of researchers at the National Institutes of Health compared flu vaccine rates with influenza-related illness over a 19-year period, from 1980 to 1999, they found that deaths from the flu increased as vaccination rates increased. “In conclusion, the increase in elderly influenza vaccination coverage in the U.S. after 1980 was not accompanied by a decline in influenza-related mortality,” the researchers concluded.
A study, led by a researcher at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine, found that increasing vaccination coverage did not correlate with declining mortality and the decline in influenza-related mortality could not be attributed to the flu vaccine but was rather the result of naturally acquired immunity. Observational studies crediting the flu vaccine with contributing to decreased deaths from the flu, “substantially overestimate vaccination benefit,” these researchers concluded.
A study published in the American Journal of Perinatology of vaccine effectiveness in pregnant women in Northern California across five flu seasons found that women who received flu vaccines during pregnancy had the same risk for influenza-like illness as unvaccinated women, and infants born to women who received flu vaccines also had the same risks for influenza or pneumonia as infants born to unvaccinated women. In other words, vaccine status made no difference to whether or not pregnant women or their offspring got the flu.
A study published in Pediatrics International of Japanese children ages 6 months to 2 years who were vaccinated against the flu found that the influenza vaccine did not reduce the rate of influenza A infections in children under two.
CDC Presents Updated Estimates of Flu Vaccine Effectiveness for the 2014-2015 Season
Flu vaccine did not protect against drifted H3N2 viruses, but protected against vaccine-like H3N2 and B viruses
On February 26, 2015, updated interim influenza (flu) vaccine effectiveness (VE) estimates for the current 2014-2015 season were presented to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The updated VE estimate against influenza A H3N2 viruses was 18% (95% confidence interval (CI): 6%-29%).This result is similar to the VE point estimate of 23%, which was reported in a January 16 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) and confirms reduced protection against H3N2 viruses this season. The VE estimate against influenza B viruses this season was 45% (95% CI: 14% – 65%).
How well the flu vaccine works can vary depending on a number of factors, including the similarity between circulating influenza viruses and vaccine viruses, and the age, health or immune status of the person vaccinated. The findings for VE against H3N2 viruses this season are about one-third of the VE expected when the flu vaccine is well matched to circulating influenza viruses. The VE against influenza B viruses this season is similar to the effectiveness observed when vaccine viruses and most circulating viruses are well matched.
ACIP votes down use of LAIV for 2016-2017 flu season
For Immediate Release: Wednesday, June 22, 2016
CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) today voted that live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known as the “nasal spray” flu vaccine, should not be used during the 2016-2017 flu season. ACIP continues to recommend annual flu vaccination, with either the inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) or recombinant influenza vaccine (RIV), for everyone 6 months and older.
ACIP is a panel of immunization experts that advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This ACIP vote is based on data showing poor or relatively lower effectiveness of LAIV from 2013 through 2016.
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
The Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute receives numerous emails every day. On this webpage you will find a small sample of these unsolicited personal letters linking vaccines to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). This webpage also includes an excerpt on SIDS from the U.S. Congressional records. We also recommend the Free SIDS Report on vaccines and Sudden Death. It includes numerous studies and other documentaion confirming a link between vaccines and infant fatalities. Be sure to read the most recent reader emails as well, which include numerous vaccine questions, comments, concerns, and unsolicited personal stories.
Comparison of VAERS fetal-loss reports during three consecutive influenza seasons: Was there a synergistic fetal toxicity associated with the two-vaccine 2009/2010 season?
The aim of this study was to compare the number of inactivated-influenza vaccine–related spontaneous abortion and stillbirth (SB) reports in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database during three consecutive flu seasons beginning 2008/2009 and assess the relative fetal death reports associated with the two-vaccine 2009/2010 season. The VAERS database was searched for reports of fetal demise following administration of the influenza vaccine/vaccines to pregnant women. Utilization of an independent surveillance survey and VAERS, two-source capture–recapture analysis estimated the reporting completeness in the 2009/2010 flu season. Capture–recapture demonstrated that the VAERS database captured about 13.2% of the total 1321 (95% confidence interval (CI): 815–2795) estimated reports, yielding an ascertainment-corrected rate of 590 fetal-loss reports per million pregnant women vaccinated (or 1 per 1695). The unadjusted fetal-loss report rates for the three consecutive influenza seasons beginning 2008/2009 were 6.8 (95% CI: 0.1–13.1), 77.8 (95% CI: 66.3–89.4), and 12.6 (95% CI: 7.2–18.0) cases per million pregnant women vaccinated, respectively. The observed reporting bias was too low to explain the magnitude increase in fetal-demise reporting rates in the VAERS database relative to the reported annual trends. Thus, a synergistic fetal toxicity likely resulted from the administration of both the pandemic (A-H1N1) and seasonal influenza vaccines during the 2009/2010 season
