Thread Name: BS: Flu Vaccine Shortage
Subject: RE: BS: Flu Vaccine Shortage
Also, the other thing you do not seem to have considered is whether or not tort law reforms are the only reasonable remedy for the problem. Even if tort laws are inhibiting the production of the vaccines, there may be other solutions, besides taking away a person's right to recieve damages for legitimate cases of negligence or careless indifference that result in a drastically reduced quality of life for the person effected. But you can bet pharmaceutical lobbyists are not going to be talking about alternatives. Because that is not their job.
