Zika cases have increased in number in the past, causing a lot of worries. It is recommended everyone should undergo vaccination against Zika. In addition, the Zika virus does not have any medically approved cure as of now, making it more deadly. The best way to prevent getting Zika virus it to eliminate mosquitoes and stop the mosquito breeding.
Researchers have said that ‘while vaccination against Zika is advisable for everyone, but Zika can also be naturally averted by targeting women of childbearing age, children and young adults with a preventive vaccine was found to be the most cost-effective.’ In fact, these researchers added that the ‘Zika vaccinations could actually pay for itself.’
Moreover, guidance is also needed on the conditions under which one can know if it ethically acceptable, if not required, to include pregnant women in Zika vaccine trials.
