Some believe vaccines contribute to breast cancer. Pharma's mindset is that another vaccine will help. They did this with chicken pox, which led to an increase in shingles. Low and behold, a shingles vaccine comes along. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for Pharma.

You really should do some research before you reply. This is a vaccine for people who have ovarian cancer not one to prevent it. Ovarian cancer is deadly and a cure or a vaccine to delay progression of this cancer would save many lives.
