us sanctions dont matter much obviously. although with the sorry state cuba is in, this is amazing. however, arent most vaccines just dead pieces of the virus/bacteria? then whats the big deal about a synthetic one if our current method works quite fine. if it isnt broke...

According to the article, "Synthetically produced vaccines offer many advantages over conventional vaccines, including enhanced purity and effectiveness. They also have a longer shelf life and can be mass produced, potentially at a lower cost.

Maybe a synthetic vaccine wouldn't cause the virus or bacteria that it is supposed to fight to mutate and cause the vaccine to lose it's effectiveness?

hahahahahaha, if it isn't broke don't fix it, that is funny. You should take a look at many of the issues concerning vaccines.

Good point, some traditional vaccines can't be used by people with certain allergies, like people with egg allergies can't use the flu shot because the culture is grown on eggs or something like that. Also, the rate of mutation, and some of the potential side effects of vaccines.

I am also talking about vaccines that lead to epidemics. Vaccines that cause the disease in a person the vaccine was supposed to prevent. They have also been linked to such things as asthma and autimsm in children.

Yes, there have been many disease-related side effects from Vaccinations. Another that comes to mind is the flu shot administered in '76 (?) when the government thought there was going to be a flu Pandemic, thus ordered 100 million doses of the flu shot. Anyway, all of a sudden many more people then was considered normal were turning up having Guillian-Barre Syndrome.

I completely disagree with Vaccines. I know they have been known to add Mercury to them which is scary. They could be adding anything from nanobots to new mind altering drugs and who would know about it?
