Malaria Vaccine Endorsed
The World Health Organization announced yesterday it is recommending widespread use of the first proven malaria vaccine for children in sub-Saharan Africa and other at-risk regions. Hailed as a “historic moment,” the vaccine is the first to be developed for any parasitic disease in humans.
The drug does not provide perfect protection; a pilot program involving 800,000 children from Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi since 2019 found it reduced severe cases by 30%. It also requires a four-dose regimen, a challenge in countries with fragile medical infrastructure. A follow-up modified version of the drug, still in clinical trials, has shown efficacy above 75% in the first year after treatment.
Malaria kills more than 400,000 people each year, with more than half being African children under five. The mosquito-borne disease affects about 2,000 people in the US annually, but results in only a handful of deaths in the country. Experts predict the new vaccine could save tens of thousands of lives each year when combined with other interventions.

Here’s a “traditional” vaccine.
It’s not perfect. But, the cost of not having it is huge.
Unlike the Covid-19 RNA “vaccine”, it solves REAL problems with REAL percentages.
While it probably won’t be a mandatory profit make for Big Pharma, unlike the Covid-19 jab and rehabs, I see this akin to the polio vaccine where Moms will be running to get it for their children.
Maybe next year, I won’t have to donate to the Against Malaria Foundation and then I can pick another charity hoping they will accomplish their mission. For those who want to donate, the information is below.
