Coronavirus: Canadians urged to get flu shot to ease burden on hospitals

As COVID-19 cases rise across Canada, experts are worried the health system may be overwhelmed by an influx of patients suffering from the coronavirus or the flu.

As Julia Wong reports, Canadians are being urged to go and get a flu shot as a way to prevent at least one disease from impacting people as the country deals with COVID-19’s second wave.

    It's PATHETIC to see how MISINFORMED PREMIER OF ONTARIO – DOUG FORD – is by basically sending his people to commit suicide by taking a FLU SHOT & DOWNLOAD THE COVID APP. Does he even understand how DANGEROUS his advice is ??

    So who here is still alive and relatively healthy because they had the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella), Hep B, Polio, RV, PCV, DTaP vaccine shots? It's an easy answer.

    Never got a flu shot, most definitely not going to start now. Flu shot = injected with a type of coronavirus = "positive" test for covid 19 = they get to keep pushing their "case spikes". This is precisely why they're pushing the flu vaccine so hard this year.

    Well, I'd LOVE to get my flu shot, and other medications, if it wasn't for the fact that Vancouver Coastal Health had me blacklisted because they didn't want to release my medical records of their malpractice. Now of course I had already sent you guys an e-mail of this, so I can only assume that you got a good laugh out of it, and it must make the Global staff chuckle knowing that people are dying to cover up other people's crimes.

    This joke of a so called deadly pandemic proves scientists are just selfish academic politicians & beurocrats than actual scientists & not since witch burning, sacrificing virgins, omen worship, eugenics, phenology & Y2K have scientists inflicted so much harm on Humanity.

    We THE PEOPLE, – KNOW that we are THE PEOPLE
    and that our 'leaders' are FAILING to SERVE US
    as per their CONTRACT with us.
    As a result – we DEMAND (it is our RIGHT and DUTY)
    That you STEP DOWN NOW – for ATTEMPTING TO HARM
    AND DIVIDE US by hoping to incite MOB RULE with the
    PRETENSE of 'mandatory masks' – pitting us AGAINST each other,
    and PRETENDING not to KNOW that we have CIVIL RIGHTS
    that protect our freedoms.
    Ie. NOTHING is 'mandatory' but you keep making people
    BELIEVE that it is – thereby pitting us against each other.
    DUMMIES – WE HAVE RIGHTS to not wear a mask:
    1. Based upon our RELIGIOUS FREEDOM (To not participate in a satanic mask ritual)
    2. Based upon Medical Condition, including psychological – and we DON'T have to disclose it
    3. Based upon our CREED – that we DON'T submit to LIES of KNOWN LIARS.

    On top of all that we have
    the MASK off/on/off charade and the
    'flatten the curve for 15 days' becoming 6 months
    The LIE of the modeling, to the lie of the death rate,
    to now the LIE of the 'cases' – all based upon the
    FAULTY PCR tests – which it's creator stated
    "Should NOT be used to detect a virus"
    Just like the box the mask comes in says:
    "Does not protect against a virus"

    YOU LOSER 'LEADERS' are obviously NOT SELF DETERMINING PEOPLE.
    Something RULES you and it APPEARS to be a DEMONIC OATH or SPELL of some kind.

    You appear to NO LONGER BE INTERESTED IN SERVING THE PEOPLE
    or ANY LONGER CAPABLE OF SERVING THE PEOPLE that you were ELECTED TO SERVE.
    As a result and having broken your contract with us
    WE DEMAND THAT YOU STEP DOWN NOW"!!

    TRUDEAU – STEP DOWN NOW!
    TAM – STEP DOWN NOW!
    FORD – STEP DOWN NOW!
    TORY – STEP DOWN NOW!

    We KNOW that you're under some WEIRD kind of EVIL DURESS.
    But TRUST US – you've MORE TO FEAR from the
    WILL OF GOD AND REAL MEN AND WOMEN (NOT 'CORPORATE PERSONS)
    Than you do of the WEAK LOSERFERIANS AND YOUR 'GOD' LOSERFER.

    WE ARE, IF YOU HAVE NOT NOTICED YET
    PUTTING ALL OF THAT OUT OF COMMISSION…..DUMMIES!

    WE ARE TRUMPING IT ALL….AND YOU KNOW YOU'RE ALL ON A SINKING SHIP.
    WE DON'T EVEN BLAME YOU – WE JUST COMMAND YOU TO STOP NOW!

    YOU'RE ON A 5 YEAR LOSING STREAK TO TRUMP
    EVEN WORSE FOR YOU – YOU ARE LIVING THROUGH AN EXORCISM
    WE ALL ARE – CAN YOU NOT SEE IT ALL BEING DRAWN OUT INTO THE OPEN?

    THAT IS BY OUR WILL, THROUGH OUR REPRESENTATIVE PRESIDENT TRUMP
    AND HE IS SERVING OUR WILL, WHICH IS THE WILL OF GOD.
    ….YOU KNOW….THE ONE THAT CREATED THIS PLACE,
    WHERE A LOSER 'THOUGHT' HE COULD BEST – THE CREATOR….

    UM…YA – THAT'S REAL SMART!
    AND THAT'S LOSERFER – THE ONE YOU SOLD OUT TO.
    MAYBE YOU WERE BORN INTO THAT FALSE DECEPTION
    WELL – IT'S ALL COMING TO AN END AS OF COURSE IT ONLY COULD
    THE IMPOSTOR/PRETENDER, LOSER SPIRIT THAT RULES YOU
    WILL BE REMOVED FROM THIS PLACE.

    THE SOONER YOU COME TO GOODNESS OF YOUR OWN ACCORD
    THE BETTER THIS WILL GO FOR YOU AND EVERYONE YOU KNOW
    ON THE LOSER SIDE, AS WELL AS FOR ALL OF HUMANITY.
    AS FOR THE WRATH OF LOSERFER….DON'T WORRY ABOUT HIM
    WE ARE E V I S C E R A T I N G HIM FROM THIS PLACE
    BY EXPOSING HIM FOR HOW HE PUPPETED YOU
    AND ALL OF US – VIA TRICKERY AND DECEPTION

    THAT IS WHAT THIS ENTIRE EXPERIENCE HAS ALL EVER BEEN ABOUT

    AND NOW – IT'S ABOUT TO BE FINALIZED.

    PICK YOUR SIDE.
    CREATOR – THE REAL GOD, HUMANITY, WE THE PEOPLE, MAN AND WOMAN
    AND ALL LIFE

    OR
    LOSERFER, THE LOSER, IMPOSTOR THAT BULLIED AND TRICKED YOU ALL.

    OBVIOUSLY HE WON'T WIN AND HAS NO REAL POWER.

    WE WILL HEAL YOU ALL
    GOD PLANNED THIS – FOR US TO RISE UP AND OVERCOME
    AND WIN OUR FREEDOM AND SAVE AND HEAL OUR FALLEN
    WAYWARD BRETHREN FROM THE GRIPS OF EVIL.

    COME TO GOODNESS OF YOUR OWN ACCORD
    YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID IT
    THAT YOU CHOSE IT
    THAT YOU USED YOUR WILL AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME
    IN A LONG, LONG TIME.

    CHOOSE TO BE A REAL MAN OR WOMAN AGAIN.

    Anything to sell the poison. I am 51 yrs old and I have never gotten a flu shot. Food and exercise is medicine. Do your research and see for yourself what is in this poison.

    God forbid doctors and nurses take a wee bit of time away from their TikTok uploads to tend to the odd flu patient every now and again.

    What's in the vaccine? Where are the ingredients sourced from? Has the vaccine been challenged? What strain of flu is the vaccine for? What strain of flu is active this season?

    I felt flu like symptoms a few times after receiving the flu shot. My father said that everybody must get the flu shot or else they will catch the flu and die.

    This pandemic is a really good way for them to get people to get flu shot. How come no one talks about building your own immunities up to protect yourself from any bugs?
