STUDY: Positive Association Between COVID-19 Deaths and Flu Vaccination Rates in Elderly People Worldwide

From the abstract of a peer-reviewed journal article by Christian Wehenkel,  Universidad Juarez del Estado de Durango:

The results showed a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and IVR of people ≥65 years-old. There is a significant increase in COVID-19 deaths from eastern to western regions in the world. Further exploration is needed to explain these findings, and additional work on this line of research may lead to prevention of deaths associated with COVID-19.



  1. Lol and people wonder why I never get a flu shot.

  2. This new study only adds credence to a past military study that showed a 36% increased chance of contracting a coronavirus after receiving the flu vaccine.

    1. From
      "Receiving influenza vaccination may increase the risk of other respiratory viruses, a phenomenon known as virus interference."

  3. I began trying to look into this several months ago after reading that the commonly used flu shot for 2019 was a new type and had four active parts. Forgive my off the cuff medical ignorance in terms, etc. I am not the best researcher and definitely not a data analyst but It sure looked rather odd especially when you look at vaccination rates for elderly and infirm folks.
    I have never and will never get a flu shot. There is no benefit other than enormous profits to the van companies and quite possibly is outright fraud. The current “vaccine” being hawked for this SARS-2 nonsense is not even a vaccine BY DEFINITION. Anyone willfully taking it is borderline insane.
    And just for the record there has never been an effective vaccine for any corona type virus ever. Much of the effort from what I understand has been in animal husbandry or livestock where these viruses are a nuisance and none have been successful. Please correct me if I am wrong on that.

  4. FYI, IVR is short for Influenza Vaccination Rate.

  5. Interview with Alberto Rossi, an Italian doctor specializing in pneumology, who was a member of the medical volunteers who hastened to the north of the country in March because of the COVID-19 crisis.

    Is this vaccine common in Italy?

    “In the north, yes. People are vaccinated more in the north than in the center and in the south. Knowing that the US. .military has observed adverse reactions to the administration of the flu vaccine, including respiratory problems with pneumonia, I asked the patients I personally cared for if they had received the flu vaccine. Almost all of them had indeed received it. As I said, this vaccine is very common in Lombardy. I suspect that it may have made things easier for COVID.”
