This week I received the email below. It was a link to a Tricare Alert, which I had not seen before. This alerts Tricare to the fact that some cases of cholera in some areas of the country are related to a vaccine. This alerts us to the fact that this is not something that should be happening right now. My heart just sank to the floor in a happy little dance. I’m happy to get this alert.
We are fortunate that there exists a vaccine for cholera, and it has been used successfully in some places. We will continue to do our best to keep cholera from spreading to our country.
We are also fortunate that Tricare is so open-minded about this. There have been cases of cholera in the U.S. where people have been vaccinated and the infection has been eradicated. However, if you read the comments we’ve been bombarded with over the years, you will find the general consensus that a vaccine is the way to go.
The vaccine we are talking about is called the “VacA” vaccine. It’s a small protein that is injected into your bloodstream. It is supposed to make you immune to cholera. But there’s one problem. This vaccine has never been tested in humans, and it is not approved for human use. It is also not approved for use in people with HIV.
The good news is that there is a vaccine for cholera. It is called the B-Vac. It is a small protein that was discovered in 1988. It is supposed to protect against cholera. But it is designed with a bunch of bad side effects, so it hasn’t been tested in humans. It is designed to destroy the red blood cells that are needed to fight cholera, but because of this problem has not been tested in humans, either.
There is also a new, less effective vaccine against diphtheria. It is called the A-Vac. It is a small protein that was created in 2003. It has been proven to be effective against diphtheria. But it hasnt been tested in humans. It is designed to destroy the white blood cells that are needed to fight diphtheria, but because of this problem hasnt been tested in humans, either.
Diphtheria is a viral disease. Tricare is one of the few organizations that are fully committed to eliminating this problem.
Tricare announced this morning that they are now using the A.Vac to prevent the spread of diphtheria. But they are still working on a vaccine. They have also started to use a new vaccine that was made to fight diphtheria. But they are still not sure how effective it is. That is why they are using it only in the very small percentage of cases where diphtheria is present (that is all they can get the vaccine to work for).
If you had to guess, you’d think diphtheria would be the most common vaccine side effect, but it turns out that it’s not. It’s actually pretty rare.
One of the most surprising things about the new vaccine is that it is much less likely to cause a false sense of security among the vaccinated people, but it does cause a false sense of security among the unvaccinated people, so it is still very much a research project.
