You get more shots, but with fewer antigens.



We even have combination vaccines now that are more cost effective than older single target shots.

In the future, not everyone will be vaccinated for everything (as it is now, really)... no use doing mass immunization drives for diseases that don't exist in your country. And, if current drives have favorable results, certain vaccines will no longer be needed in mass quantities (we've almost finished off polio, for instance).

Sucks that anti-vaxxer ideology is so pervasive in the US... it's pretty obvious these idiots are too young to remember smallpox.
