They should make a boss-level NPC camp in all the space ports. Whoever has the infection now will be forcefully stunned, then injected with a vaccine.

Or die.

I think it's funny, after all everyone magically being cured would have been kinda out of it.
I would have prefered if they kept the news up for a week now saying that tatooine is under control again but I guess you can't have everything, the news terminals only appear for emergencies ;D

Hehe. Typhoid Boreus.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

A couple of people here are forgetting that PvP is still a strong breeding ground for the rakghoul plague. It's possible the disease could become scarce but it doesn't seem to be dying fast. Getting hit by infected players or accelerating a rakghoul explosion by killing them (which of course has many chances to happen) can lead to one player infecting most of the enemy team and some of their own. The vaccine effect disappears every time you respawn making prevention in PvP very uneconomical over time. Let alone futile to the total eradication of the disease unless everyone surrounding an infected player uses one.

If this was unintended by Bioware, or if they eventually get fed up of it, they can surely rid it of all players with a simple tweak.

I'll venture it was unintended, they probably didn't even think about people still having the debuff and never bothered to write some script or whatever to remove it after the event ended.

And while I'm typing this, I just let my GTN alt stand around long enough to explode, spreading it to all the people at the GTN on my server. Too funny.

Wait for them to remove the vaccine and cause another outbreak! That'd have been so epic!

Sadly, I do not have any plagued alts...Shame.
