    But Lipkin says a camel vaccine for MERS is still a long way off, and may not even be the best solution. He thinks it makes more sense in the long-term to develop drugs for the handful of patients who contract the virus, rather than pay to immunize millions of camels against it. Last week, he visited Saudi Arabia to meet with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Health which have requested that he begin working with researchers there to monitor the disease in camels and conduct research to develop rapid diagnostics and potential treatments for people.
