Dr James Evans, a pharmaceutical industry analyst in visiongain, said: “Pfizer’s Prevnar-13, the biggest vaccine franchise in the world in 2011 with sales of $3.7bn, is soon to be extended to adults. It’s the first multi-billion dollar vaccine franchise, and it will replace Lipitor as Pfizer’s biggest product.

“That’s a symbolic moment: vaccines are joining other biological products as the main driver for the pharmaceutical industry overall. The expansion of the therapeutic vaccines segment will accelerate that process, with vaccine treatments for melanoma, ovarian and lung cancers in the next ten years.”

Why do people say that "vaccines aren't big moneymakers for pharmaceutical companies"? I've heard that a lot...as if the company makes vaccines out of the kindness of their hearts or something. Or, is 33.8 billion not a lot to them?

Looking at the size of the vaccine market doesn't tell you much about whether they're big money makers. Looking at the share of profits that come from vaccines makes more sense. They certainly make money, it's not just altruism, but not the same kind of money something like a new heart medication, that people take everyday for years, makes.

This is also lumping a lot of things in as vaccines that we don't typically think of as vaccines when we think of the childhood vaccine schedule.

Well you just have to go to the article to find it. That the reason vaccines are a growing market share is the development of more vaccines against viruses linked to cancer, and also the flu vaccine. Not the typical childhood vaccination schedule.

Increased vaccination of adults and growing penetration of therapeutic vaccines in the cancer treatment market will drive the next phase of growth through to 2022

I would like to know what Rachael, personally, feels fits that category. Just in case we have a different opinion on that point.
