From IRE Contest entry form: "Prevnar is a 7-valent pneumococcalvaccine approved for use in infants in February 2000. At close to $240 for the four-dose regiment, Prevnar is the most expensive vaccine ever manufactured. When correspondent Valeri Williams and Producer Meridith Schucker began their investigation, over 10 million doses had already been distributed. At the time, consumers and the national media referred to Prevnar as the 'ear infection vaccine,' though it was not studied or ever approved to guard against ear infections. And no one on the government approval committees or the medical establishment stepped forward to correct the misinformation...Through interviews with numerous doctors, FDA and CDC representatives, consumer advocates, congressmen, parents and medical researchers, some startling facts emerged."
