The Lyme Vaccine That Got Away – article or 27 minute podcast
How does a vaccine get developed, studied,
approved, distributed, and administered, and then just … disappear? On Episode
34 of The Politics of Everything, hosts Laura Marsh and Alex Pareene explore what happened to
LYMErix, a vaccine for Lyme disease that has been called the only safe and
effective vaccine ever to have been voluntarily withdrawn from the market in
the United States. What does the story of LYMErix tell us about vaccine
hesitancy, liability, and how pharmaceutical companies decide what to sell? And
can we expect another Lyme vaccine anytime soon? Guests include Rebecca Onion,
who wrote about LYMErix for Slate, and Andrew Zaleski, who wrote about new
prophylactic treatments for Lyme for Outside magazine.
