Just a couple of years ago, I was able to meet and posed for a picture with the original “Incredible Hulk,” Lou Ferrigno at SHOT Show. Now, the famous celebrity is recovering from a pneumonia vaccination that hospitalized him.
On December 12, Ferrigno, 67, sent out a tweet stating, “Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep.”
“I’ll be ok but it’s important that you keep an eye on who’s giving the shot and make sure they not only swab the spot correctly but that you watch the needle come out of the package,” he added.

While it is unclear what specific shot was given to Ferrigno, there are two types of vaccines that fight against pneumonia, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC).
PCV13 and PPSV23 are both recommended for adults who are 65 and older in order to avoid contracting infections from pneumococcal diseases, such as meningitis, bloodstream infections, pneumonia, and ear infections.
Though both shots can bring on mild side effects that often go away on their own, only PCV13 has been reported to cause swelling at the injection site, the CDC said.
Despite Ferrigno advising his fans to be extra cautious when receiving shots, the CDC reports that the United States has the safest and most effective vaccine supply in its history.

Though the CDC claims it has the “safest and most effective vaccine supply in its history,” the Health Ranger Mike Adams’ Natual News disagrees.
Natural News reports:
Pneumonia vaccines do not reduce risk of death from pneumonia, study reveals.
The other problem with pneumonia vaccines is that they don’t exactly work. Research out of Australia found that adults who get vaccinated for pneumonia have the same risk of pneumonia-related death as adults who don’t get vaccinated.
And then there are the many risks associated with pneumonia shots, including infections, respiratory infections, and, yes: pneumonia itself.
If Lou Ferrigno had researched pneumonia vaccines beforehand, he might not have gotten one.
It’s safe to say that Lou Ferrigno likely didn’t do his homework on the pneumonia vaccine before agreeing to have its contents unloaded into his bicep. Because if he had, he might have thought twice before agreeing to get jabbed.
As we previously reported, people in the United Kingdom who received the Prevnar vaccine for pneumonia were developing a worse form of pneumonia than the wild-type variety – a type known as Serotype 1 that’s seriously life-threatening.
Another paper published in the journal Pediatrics found that people who get pneumonia vaccines have a higher risk of chest infections. Researchers from the University of California, Davis found that rates of empyema-associated hospitalization have been steadily increasing over the years as a result of the vaccine.
None of this bodes well concerning the safety and effectiveness of pneumonia vaccines. Parents who take the time to research this information will likely come to the conclusion that it’s probably best to just forego the jab entirely – something that, again, might have happened in Lou Ferrigno’s case, had he taken the time to see what was being injected into his body.
I still don’t quite understand why healthy people would want to put foreign things into their bodies when they aren’t actually sick.
