Has There Ever Been a Government-Mandated AIDS Vaccine?
The rules governing COVID-19 immunizations and testing have sparked debate over previous mandates issued in the United States.

In persons with compromised immune systems, opportunistic infections are more severe and emerge more frequently.
“People with AIDS have a three-year survival rate if they don’t take HIV medication. Without treatment, a person’s life expectancy drops to around a year after contracting a deadly opportunistic infection, according to the HIV.gov website.
“At this stage of HIV infection, HIV treatment can still help patients, and it can even save their lives. People who begin antiretroviral therapy (ART) as soon as they are diagnosed with HIV reap greater advantages, which is why HIV testing is so important.”
While there are drugs available to treat HIV, no vaccine exists to prevent it.
According to the HIV.gov website, “No.
