It was developed for use in Asia, but I wonder when it will be

1) available in the U.S., and

2) added to the the U.S. childhood vaccine schedule and

3) required for school in the U.S.

 

Any guesses?

within five years the USA will mandate that one too, and for preggo women as well..i recently read they are working on more vaccines for pregnant women to take.  Fetal vaccination is going to be a thing of the future.

"This and several other viruses can cause hand foot and mouth disease, they added, so using a vaccine against only EV71, even if it is highly effective, may have only a minimal impact on reducing the overall number of cases of the disease."

Yeah, we'll pass on this one as well...

You'll know it's coming when the disease is all over the news--first terrify the people, then offer the cure.

Problem: disease. Reaction: fear and panic. Solution: vaccine!

Something has occurred to me. For nearly Every. Single. Routine. Acute. Minor. Childhood. Disease...(barring the common cold), there is a vaccine that is circulating or in development. Because any minor childhood disease might-just-might blow up into something serious. So it's official. Children are no longer allowed to get sick.

I'm worried that this profit-driven push to sanitize childhood is going to bite us back one day. greensad.gif

Yes. This is exactly what they do. It's basic Marketing 101.

I think the thousands of cases of serious adverse reactions (not to mention death), plus the latest research linking autoimmune disorders with vaccines are an indication that we are already paying a heavy price.

In an ironic twist to the pro vaxers' position on herd immunity, the vaccine program they are so fond of is riding on the backs of those who have had severe reactions.

But they claim adverse reactions or complications from the diseases are occuring in larger numbers than adverse reactions to the vaccines. And since most vaccine reactions are denied, there is no way to objectively look at the situation! It is frustrating! I'd like to make decisions based on facts, but there's only denial and conjecture.
