This.

Adding to the point of "boys can spread it" this is basically the same reason they recommend even people who "don't get bad flus" still vaccinate,or even people in incredibly low-risk areas for certain diseases still get vaccinated for those.

Every single person who - even if the infection isn't dangerous for them - is a carrier for something is another chance for that virus to randomly mutate during duplication in a way that can totally change the effectiveness of the vaccine, or the violence with which it infects and affects the victim.

Like most viruses, a vaccine is only effective if taken BEFORE potential contact with the virus occurs; hence this mentality that, "Oh, but my child isn't going to have sex YET!" is idiotic...then again, to be fair, this IS America, where we have people fighting to ensure the only time kids get access to accurate and functional sex education is about 5 years AFTER the average have started having sex.

I couldn't agree more.  As a former employee of Merck, I detest their business practices and can honestly say I have never worked for a more oppressive regime anywhere else to date.

That's probably true, but like most of the responses to this subject, it fails to address the point I was trying to make, which is not whether they DO or DON'T "care", but whether they SHOULD or SHOULDN'T care.

I maintain my original stance that they very much SHOULD care about the people who swallow their overpriced poison, or else get out of health CARE and go into another industry like industrial solvents or something.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Yes, the guilt angle is pretty horrid.  I wish I were on the test panel that they sometimes run to gauge the public's reaction, because I would have told them that the parent shaming angle is a horrible way to go.
