Study shows potential Zika vaccine completely protects mice -
UPI reports: "Just one dose of an experimental Zika vaccine provided mice with 100 percent protection against a potentially lethal dose of the virus, researchers report. The quick spread of the Zika virus and its devastating effects on the brain development of babies have made the need for a vaccine to protect against this mosquito-borne virus a global issue. Currently, the main way to ward off the virus is to avoid mosquito bites."

Comment: I hope this isn't one of those discoveries that they have to study for decades before the vaccine gets to the people who need it.  Maybe that can put it on the fast track, if modern medicine has such a thing.
