Have you ever wondered how some websites come to promote vaccines? Well, here’s the answer: Pharmaceutical companies pay enormous amounts of money for websites to promote vaccines.

The influence is subtle for the unsuspecting parent – especially on popular websites such as WebMD.

According to documents located on Merck’s website, at least $3,592,850 dollars was paid to Medscape LLC, a subsidiary of WebMD Health, from 2008 through 2012. If you factor in other cancer programs promoted on WebMD by Merck, the total figure comes to $3,982,850. The amount is likely higher as one of the documents on the website is unavailable. [1]

Until recently, the actual amounts have been anyone’s guess – and I think you will agree that 3.5 million dollars is a significant amount.
