Emergence of a Multiresistant Serotype 19A Pneumococcal Strain Not Included in the 7-Valent Conjugate Vaccine as an Otopathogen in Children
Geez. Where do we start with this one? Do we start with the idea that ear infections in children responds incredibly well to non-pharmaceutical approaches like allergen avoidance, probiotics and chiropractic adjusting that it is crazy to think we would need a vaccine?
Do we start with the fact that Mother Nature ALWAYS wins, and that when we try to squash down her creations that she’s going to get upset? It reminds me of a Whac-a-Mole game, where you try to smash down a mole with a mallet, only to have him pop up in another hole. Such is what we’re seeing here. Develop a vaccine against some strains of bacteria, and we see other strains, more difficult to treat, rise up. What a mess we are creating!!
