Dengue Vaccine

Recommended Posts

This is the latest I could find.

MANILA (Reuters) - The office of the Philippine president on Sunday vowed to hold accountable those responsible for a suspended dengue immunisation programme, which it said placed thousands of lives at risk.

The Department of Health (DOH) halted on Friday the use of a dengue vaccine made by Sanofi after the company said its use must be strictly limited due to evidence it can worsen the disease in people who have not previously been exposed to the infection.

"We will leave no stone unturned in making those responsible for this shameless public health scam which puts hundreds of thousands of young lives at risk accountable," Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said in a statement.

How about dengue fever vaccines. :89:

Good information guys.

Effectiveness of other vaccines and or motivation behind large pharmaceutical corporations would make a great new topic.
