Which political reasons would stop efforts to provide clean, running water but allow a vaccine that hasn't been tested for its tetragenic potential? That's why I too have to wonder if these women and children are being used as a field study.
As much as it frightens me that a vaccine is being given to so many women that hasn't been evaluated for its effects on a a developing fetus...
