Using the links provided in the other vaccine profit thread, 4-5 dollars per vaccination are for paying the staff for administering the shot. This included things like billing, not just injecting. Checking the CDC info on well baby visits, the main reason for most well baby visits is the vaccination(s). So, ... how profitable are vaccinations for the doctors? Should more of the fee of the visit count as profit from vaccinations, since some visits may not be made if it weren't for scheduled vaccinations?

Can you please provide the links in this thread too?  What CDC info are you referring to for well baby visits?

I think she means this thread

I think there are reasons to attend well baby checks other than vaccines.

Mother of two living in UK. Daughter (2007) born in USA, son (2010) born here. I'm pro natural birth, midwife care, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby wearing and a keen advocate of cloth diapering. I'm a full time working research scientist (physical sciences). Vaccines save lives.
