Vitamin D Plays Role in Prevention of RSV Infections in Infants - AAP

Many vaccines are for diseases that don't appear to exist anymore. Why is it important to vaccinate against them?

Comment:  Creating fear of the mere INCIDENCE of disease is fear-mongering.  The proper question is "what are the long-term consequences of a disease compared to the long-term consequences of the vaccine designed to prevent that disease"?  For instance, how much risk would most people take to avoid getting a cold?  And if the diseases are now more dangerous, like it appears measles now is, we should be asking "why?", not be using it as an excuse to promote more vaccination.

Pfizer's next top seller aces trials for new use - FiercePharma "Pfizer has gotten some good news on Prevnar 13, its new-generation pneumococcal vaccine.

Final report on HPV trials indicates violations - "The final report of the committee appointed by the Centre to enquire into alleged irregularities in the conduct of studies using Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine has found enough evidence to suggest that there were large scale ethical violations during the conduct of “post-licensure observational study” be it in obtaining the consent of the young girls on whom the trial was conducted or on issues related to safety, follow up and reporting of adverse events."

Andhra Pradesh had issued order for cooperate in HPV vaccine programme - "As many as 23,000 girls in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat were vaccinated under the Post-licensure observational study of 'HPV vaccination Demonstration Project' carried out by an international non-governmental organisation PATH for two American pharmaceutical companies. However, the Centre ordered suspension of the programme following the death of seven girls who had been vaccinated and allegations of violations of ethics in conducting the trial."
