Right??  Sigh.  Does anyone else feel that the vaccine industry just sits around thinking up ways to inject us with crap?

 The primary goal of all pharmaceutical companies, including those that manufacture vaccines is to make money for their shareholders. They value profits over the health/lives of patience. So yes that is exactly what I think

The industry is so corrupt in my mind.   I just can't see it any other way.

For the life of me I don't get how "they" think they can create a vaccine for staph. Hasn't MRSA proven that staph is an ever evolving/mutating bacteria? Am I wrong?

Oh awesome!  Thanks for letting me know.  I'm so excited to see that this was approved, and now I can get my 12 month old vaxxed!  :D

The fact that the bacteria evolve to evade the vaccines is a bonus for the manufacturer. Since they already have the technology to add in new antigens and serotypes (for an additional fee, of course), the fact that the pathogens change is just an additional market opportunity.

 

Expensive new vaccines that beget the need for even more expensive, newer vaccines are like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
