  • Wow loaded question. Depending on how long the vaccine had been in use and tested, I would if it was proven like the Polio vaccine. If it was new like H1N1-then no way.

  • it will take a really long time to perfect the aids vaccine bc there is such a high rate of mutation. they have recently made progress, but it has been really slow and the results were not really all that dependable (ie. the vaccine worked for some people but not others). by the time they perfect the vaccine and do extensive testing i am sure our kids will be fully grown, but to answer your question in a hypothetical way, yes i would get my kids vaccinated against aids if there was such a thing.
