Or have I crossed over into conspiracy theorist?
Here are some articles about the relationship between prevnar vaccine and MRSA:
Whether the current increase in severe community-acquired S. aureus infections, including methicillin-resistant S. aureus (6), is partially caused by the recent introduction of the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine is yet to be determined.
A trial with a 7-valent pneumococcal-conjugate vaccine in children with recurrent acute otitis media showed a shift in pneumococcal colonisation towards non-vaccine serotypes and an increase in Staphylococcus aureus-related acute otitis media after vaccination.
(sorry that one is just the abstract)
Then, there's this:
On this website, there was an article discussing the staph vaccine, and it states that they will only produce it if it's on the CDC schedule...the article is no longer there (or i can't find it), but I will scan it in when I get home.
Now, I'm seeing articles like this:
Is the above article some sort of "fear mongering" or PSA to get people interested in MRSA (which I know is a real problem, but it's the recent media attention), and will that be followed by a "but don't worry...we have a VACCINE for it!" Even though it appears that the overuse of antibiotics and certain vaccines are the root cause for this issue. What do you think?
