Also people that get ebola and survived, are only immune for 10 years, but that doesn't mean that they will not susceptible to other variations of it.

I guess like the seasonal flu.

I understand that there is no Ebola vaccine. The question in my mind is, does our exposure to other live and not so live pathogens via vaccinations, MMR, Polio, and flu set certain populations up for immune failures, causing an uptake for other pathogens?

I wouldn't be surprised.

Well I am not saying not to us bleach, I read some place that ebola can survive ammonia based cleaners.

As far as disinfecting around patients, critical patients, it is not going to help them heal. Upper respiratory illness are subject to any kind of cleaner but clorox is the worst.

What can we anticipate in terms of the timing of vaccine availability for the 2014-15 season?

Distribution of products began in August and manufacturer projections indicate that the majority of vaccine will be distributed by the end of October. However, some vaccine distribution will likely continue into November.


Are all influenza vaccines the same?

Different influenza vaccine preparations have different indications as licensed by the FDA. See the table below for an overview of these indications.

Yeah this did not come out like I hoped, check out this link, it is very important and relevant to the thread subject. Good thing they knew late October would be when the big need would present itself. So onward with the BIG PUSH...

True. So much of everything is "Damned if you do, damned if you don't."

Sucks.

That 10 year immunity thing isn't proved, just speculated. But yeah, looks like we just might be in for a "seasonal Ebola" effect. I wonder, Will that effect be global or restricted to West Africa?
