Free HIV Vaccine-- A Good Thing?
 
So we are not there yet, but there are a group of individuals who have united to not only come up with a HIV Vaccine, but they want to make sure that it is FREELY available to all people.

What are your thoughts on this?

Are there any implications that we as a society should be cautious of in such a project?

I certainly wouldn't want to be among the first to receive any sort of vaccine. It's best to wait and give them a few years to see what kind of side effects we're looking at.

well, i'd say that depends upon your knowledge level about what has become a raging debate now. there is compelling evidence that most or all of the vaccination 'successes' we grew up hearing about were possibly adulterated, results-reporting wise, etc., and so i would say the answer will depend upon how confident you are in the vaccine-maker. I haven't gotten to your link yet, i'll try, but my personal line is if a Rothschild was anywhere near it, i'm not interested. 50,000mcg of thimerosal is just pop reduction, imo.

hmm, a startup, and crowdfunding might be ok...be interesting to see if any of the principles meet up with any 'accidents' in the next year, God, how did i get here :lol

I would very likely not take it.

No thanks. The tiny bit of conspiracy theorist I have in me thinks these vaccines are very harmful and could hold a deadly virus which could be triggered by some initiated reaction. There are way too many vaccines being pushed. I'll take my chances.

Perhaps a free vaccine would make it safer for men to troll for trysts with other men in DuSable Park. There's that, right?

:lol

73% reduction in incidence rate gained by inocculating 2% of the population might be a worthy goal
