So now it's going to "dump" the vaccine on poor third world women<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I guess they've given up- they see it's not working?<br><br>
This is good news for American girls and women but bad news for whoever will get this vaccine "dumped" onto them. But then again, chances are they would have made more vaccine and dumped it on 3rd world women anyway, even if they sold lots to Americans.
