Jeez, for some reason I imagined they would lessen the recommended vaccines for adults, but that's just silly.

Considering that every member of ACIP has to have waivers of their conflicts of interest just to sit on the committee.....of course they're recommending we shoot 'em up!! Kinda sad, huh. And we accept their recommendations without question? Not likely.
