This is from the “Believe-It-or-Not-This-Isn’t-Satire” files.
If you don’t get lined up for this year’s
lethal injection – ahem – I mean flu shot – you just might get a push from a well-meaning (but brainwashed) friend or neighbor. A national campaign has begun with the intention to shame and peer pressure everyone to get the flu shot.
The campaign was created by Sanofi-Pasteur, the company who makes…you guessed it…a flu vaccine called Fluzone, approved by our good friends at the FDA in 2011. (They also collaborate with the notable eugenicists of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.) You can find out more about the FLUgitive campaign on Facebook.
#FLUgitives live in every town in America; they could be hiding in your workplace, your gym, the grocery store, or even in your own home. Each year in the U.S., 1 in 5 people, or up to 20 percent of the population, gets the flu and an estimated 226,000 people are hospitalized from influenza-related complications. But since the single most important thing adults can do to help prevent spreading the flu is to get their annual flu vaccination, these #FLUgitives should not wait. #FLUgitives are encouraged to come out of hiding, round up other #FLUgitives and turn themselves in to their healthcare provider to learn about the seriousness of influenza and their available vaccine options.
“Because flu season can begin as early as October and last through May, the best prevention for those planning to get their annual flu shot is to get it as early as possible in the season, allowing your body time to build up its immunity,” said Carlos E. Picone, M.D., F.C.C.P., Vice-Chair of the Department of Internal Medicine at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C.
Research has shown that social influences are a primary factor in the adoption of health behaviors. The FLUgitives campaign leverages the positive power of social peer influence to drive more people to help protect themselves against the flu by getting vaccinated and features four #FLUgitives whom everyone might know – or may even relate to themselves.

Check out the mocking video campaign below for your recommended daily allowance of offensive and insulting propaganda.
The Fitness Fanatic
Convinced that exercise and all-protein diet is the key to staying healthy, this gym rat dreads getting the flu vaccine because nothing can get in the way of his workout. Putting his beloved biceps on the back burner is not an option. With big protection and a tiny needle, the Fluzone Intradermal vaccine only goes skin deep so no one has to mess with “lightening” and “thunder” unless they really have to.
The Turbo Mom
A modern day Superwoman, this suburban warrior balances caring for her kids, husband, home and pets on top of a busy job. But her hectic schedule leaves little time for anything else. Fluzone Intradermal vaccine is right on top of that – it’s a simple and quick way to get the protection she needs without missing a beat.
The Latest and Greatest Guy
A self-proclaimed gadget loving playboy, this FLUgitive always wants the newest version of everything.He should ask about Fluzone Intradermal vaccine- it’s a smart, fast and efficient technology, just like his gadgets.
The Scaredy Cat
This constant worrier is on edge about pretty much everything.
But since his fear of getting sick outweighs his fear of getting a flu shot, Fluzone Intradermal vaccine is right up his alley. It uses a next-generation device to quickly help deliver vaccine just under the skin’s surface, so he can find something else to worry about for a change.
There’s even a dubious little app that allows you to load your photo and see how bad you will look if you don’t get your flu shot. No, I’m not kidding.
Notably, one type of FLUgitive is not represented in the videos – those of us who avoid the shot because we know better. Do your research and make your decision – don’t base it on biased propaganda presented by those who profit from the vaccine.
Thank you to Vanessa for the link! 🙂
Correct me if I’m wrong, but they are targeting a populous of generally healthy individuals not at risk of contracting the flu! According to their faux studies and research, the highest ‘at risk’ are infants and elderly and these commercials aren’t aimed at that demographic. How clever. This just irritates me beyond words, its mind games and programming at its finest! In my opinion ANY vaccine is as safe as petting a rattlesnake.
I work for the state of Arkansas and they have made it mandatory for state employees to take the shot or else wear a MASK. I am thinking about just getting a burka.
I last had a flu shot about 8 years ago. I was sick before I got home, and haven’t had one since. Notably I haven’t had the flu or been sick since either. The flu shot is scrap shoot, and we all know gambling is bad!
IMHO if the flu jab was actually effective and useful instead of a threat to health then it would not be pushed on people they would be left to “suffer on their own”. I have not seen any medical products that were safe and effective in a long while. I guess that is why I avoid doctors and clinics like the plague they spread.
Who knows. With nano-technology, maybe the CHIP with come with the Shot….
Pasteur was a fraud. Ever hear of Antoine Bechamp? Of course not, it would not be profitable to expose the fraud that vaccines are! Pasteur attempted to push junk science in the 19th century and back then most countries balked at the actual damage they caused. It was so bad in one eastern European country that to this day vaccines are bad. Why is that so? Pasteurs vaccines wiped out herds of live stock that received his vaccines. Study the history, germ theory is a fraud, read the two books in one called ‘Pasteur of Bechamp’. You may want to study Florence Nightengale as well. DON’T VACCINATE and let no imbecile shame you into it!
First I would like that the White House occupant & I mean all of them get the FLU SHOT from the batch delivered for the Oi Polloi!
Followed by all the Congress & Senate & that mean as well all the staffers & hangers on!
Then I will consider maybe having it as well!
Why dont we force the entire government to accept their own obamacare and then after signing the papers stick them all with their flu shots…
The “Scaredy Cat” clip features a racist stereotype like something out of a 1940s movie. I notice Youtube comments are disabled.
Last time I got a flu shot I got the flu. I haven’t had the seasonal flu since 1987, when I was forced to get the shot by the Army. After that I always managed to have something very important to do so I could miss the propaganda juice. I won’t ever get a flu shot again, no matter how old I get.
Screw them and their flu shot. Never had one and never will.
I have never gotten a flu shot. The only person I know who gets their flu shot religiously also gets the flue religiously. It is suppose to protect you but this woman gets sick EVERY winter. She still gets the shot. I don’t understand her.
File this failed ad campaign alongside the plastic Burger King.
Hey guess what? No one in my family has had the flu in 9 years! The last time we all had a flu vaccine was… You guessed it… 9 years ago. Where’s the video for that?
I am a nurse and I consider it my moral duty to get a flu shot to protect all of YOU from getting the flu from me, if I should be taking care of you.
Just look up the Saba Button case on Youtube. An infant girl who has been brain damaged by the flu shot! Her parents have just been compensated millions of dollars in damages for it.
Vaccinations are freaking dangerous! The efficacy of Flu shots are a croc of shit! I have seen countless people at my work place have the shot and get some of the worst flu’s of anyone for the season! There are others who have never ever had a flu shot and never get the flu! One guy in particular is 67 years old won’t touch the shit and he has only had 3 days sick leave in 17 years for a stomach upset!
And the lying pricks in the pro vaccine lobby serve up this bullshit that you would get a much worse flu if you didn’t have the jab! What a bucketful of buffoonery and sheer dishonesty! How the hell would they know if you would even get the flu let alone determine the severity of it? Where did they get the crystal ball to predict that? They would win lotto every week if they could tell that.
