Doctors Without Borders Refuses Vaccines from Pfizer - The Atlantic
This week the medical-aid organization Doctors Without Borders refused a donation of one million vaccine doses from the pharmaceutical corporation Pfizer. It offered inoculations against a commonly fatal pneumoniaâ€”deliverable immediately, to people in need anywhereâ€”and the doctors said no.
The decision is the result of a fundamental impasse in modern healthcare. The heart of the refusalâ€”which could well imperil children who would have received those vaccinesâ€”is a principled stand against the extremely high cost of many vaccines.
I'm not sure where I stand on this one. I feel they should have accepted the vaccines, yet I understand why MSF are taking this position. What are your thoughts?
