Vaccines Have a Social Problem!

Dr. Don Francis, Vaxgen

Francis talks about the social problem surrounding vaccines. People are only scared of a disease and willing to endure vaccination when they see evidence of the disease. Because vaccines are very effective at wiping out diseases, he notes, society does not tend to be interested with vaccines. In general, society neglects preventative activities, but instead invests huge amounts of money when people actually do get sick, he adds.
