Ebola & Zika Went Away Without Vaccines, Yet Big Pharma Still Rakes in Billions

By Vin Armani

In this video, Vin Armani exposes how the Ebola and Zika virus “crises” were used to spur billions in vaccine development. Now that the vaccines are finally coming online, they’re no longer needed, but Congress will likely fund a stockpile of them for good measure. Hyped pandemics appear to be a new excuse for more corporate welfare for Big Pharma.
