    He6: I am paywalled out of the article but…Maybe parents who want to refuse vaccines should be made to read about kids who have had transplanted organs (or are on chemo) and can’t be vaccinated? And what might happen if their kid spread a disease to that kid? (I am paranoid: I actually went and had a measles titer done – which, amazingly, my health insurance covered – during a recent measles outbreak, just to be sure I was still protected from the vaccines I had in my past. And yes, for some reason my doctor thought the titer made more sense than just giving me another MMR vaccine, which I was willing to do)

    He8: I originally saw that shared (as a link) on Twitter. I was like “You’re going to regret clicking that link and reading that story” but I clicked and read ANYWAY. I was not wrong. Now I have yet another medical phobia….Report

    The Offspring Drummer sounds like he was a member of the band in high school and then his parents forced him to go to college. They kept him separated if you will.Report

      I can’t imagine a valid reason for letting drug companies get away with that. Buy Drum is right, resolving it by lawsuit is needlessly cumbersome – my first suggestion would be to just remove whatever restrictions that stop generics makers buying the drugs at a pharmacy, but failing that Drum’s solution is reasonably good.Report

    I’m sure you’ve heard about the analyst report that talks about how curing patients might not be profitable.

    This is one of the situations where I feel the death penalty might be appropriate.Report
