Ebola Vaccine in the works

Ebola vaccine is ready on the shelf, but it has not been licensed by medical officials. The doctors don't want to develop it because the countries with Ebola outbreaks can't afford to pay for the vaccine. The developers of the vaccine say to send it into the market could cost 1 billion to 1.5 billion dollars.                                                                                                                                                     
Another issue is how to distribute the vaccine. There are millons of kids in Africa who are susceptible to getting Ebola and just as many adults. Many doctors would be necessary, but they don't have many doctors.
