Don’t get a flu shot, warns conservative talk show host Michael Savage, because you just can’t trust the government.

“Did Harry Reid get a flu shot?” the Larkspur, Calif., resident asked in a recent broadcast. “Did Barack Obama take a flu shot? Did Barack Obama’s lovely family take a flu shot? Did Joe Biden take a flu shot?

“Which of the mandarins took a flu shot?”

So far, there’s been no response from the mandarins. Very suspicious. If the CDC is going to urge Americans to get vaccinated, the White House could at least say whether Sasha and Malia got their shots.

The flu vaccine contains formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, Savage says. Totally true. Getting a flu shot might not be the same as eating FEMA trailer insulation, but you are having formaldehyde injected into your body.

Same with thimerosal, a mercury-laced organic compound used as a preservative in some flu shots. Thimerosal has been linked by some to autism.

Now the pro-flu shot lobby will tell you that the negligible quantities of formaldehyde and thimerosal in the vaccine are harmless, even for young children.

It will remind you that side effects are very rare, that you can’t get the flu from getting vaccinated and that the new “combined” shots, which protect against both H1N1 and seasonal flu, are made the same way as the old flu shots.

But, says Dr. Savage (Did you know he’s a doctor? Not a medical doctor, but still), suppose you do get a shot and years pass “and you get ALS or Alzheimer’s disease or MS, or you watch your kid develop seizures, or your kid becomes autistic, God forbid, what are you going to say?”

You’ll say, “I shouldn’t have gotten that flu shot back in 2013,” that’s what! Unless you get Alzheimer’s.

So listen to Dr. Savage and refuse to submit to the pro-flu shot lobby’s disease-eradicating agenda. After all, when was the last time any government-recommended vaccine containing formaldehyde did any good?

Well, except for measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox and polio.

Did I mention you shouldn’t drink fluoridated water?
