All Childhood Vaccines—In a Single Shot?

BBC News: A technology that could eventually see every childhood vaccine delivered in a single injection has been developed by US researchers. Their one-shot solution stores the vaccine in microscopic capsules that release the initial dose and then boosters at specific times. The approach has been shown to work in mouse studies, described in the journal Science. Comment: If this appears,  expect approval from the medical establishment, despite the lack of research even on today’s vaccine schedule. As we’ve noted before, even the National Academies of Medicine, which advises the government on issues relating to medicine and health, noted in a 2013 report that “Key elements of the [CDC] schedule—the number, frequency, timing, order, and age at administration of vaccines—have not been systematically examined in research studies.” But… why should thorough safety testing be done when there’s money to be made on the next blockbuster vaccine?]]>
