As a biased non-vaxer, I am VERY skeptical of such a claim!  Thoughts?

I'll read it later, but I doubt it. You know in the 60ies it was claimed one measles shot will protect your for a lifetime, so all claims should be taken with a HUGE grain of salt.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Would be absolutely fantastic if it works!  But it sounds like it is still fairly early in testing, so time will tell.

the word that spring to mind is Bulls**t!

 

The flu vaccines they have now are notoriously ineffective. I don't see how they can claim to come up with a lifetime vaccine for something that is constantly mutating and changing.

 

That aside - even if they could do it and it did work, the same concerns I have for all vaccines would remain. What is in it? how do those ingredients  and components iseparately and in combination impact the human body in the long term. Answers they don't have for any of the current vaccines, so surely won't have them for this one either.

this would be pretty good if it works... even if it does end up needing to be boosted later. (When a vaccine is first tested, they aren't going to know if immunity will wane 15 years later or more, so just because the measles vaccine needed to be boosted is not necessarily an indictment of the vaccine itself.)
