FDA warning: Don’t buy swine flu drugs online

This article advises people to use more caution when purchasing the H1N1 vaccine. It is not surprising that while some are in a serious health risk others will try to take advantage and make some money. 150 million represents the most aggressive projection of the number of people who could be infected this fall and winter, according to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. The most conservative projection is 90 million. 3% is the boost in 2010 earnings per share that GlaxoSmithKline is expected to receive from worldwide sales of the vaccine to prevent H1N1, according to Citigroup projections. So be careful when someone tries to sell you the vaccine.

    I will comment on this post by relating my statement to Kant’s standpoint of view, and the social entity model, which is basically the broader view.
    Kant stresses the importance of acting on the basis of right intentions. In this concept, the behavior of those Online-shops is absolutely immoral. Obviously, those shops have only the intention to make money. They do not car whether the patients would get the right treatment. Even more, they hazard the consequences that some people may come into serious health risks.
    Additionally, the social entity model expresses the fact that companies not only have an obligation to its stockholders, but also to the society as a whole. Especially, in this serious matter it is blamable if Online-shops behave like this.
