Big phama does not set the standards for the administration of vaccines; that's done by the CDC. Take a couple hours and browse their various websites (hint: www.cdc.gov will get you started}. The CDC is a highly professional, evidence based organization that is the envy of the world. I am not a physician or other medical professional nor am I in the employ of a pharmaceutical company. Before I retired I used a number of CDC resources as the basis for risk analysis and risk forecasting which is where I got to know them reasonably well.
I also recommend the brit site badscience.net if you would like to learn more about vaccines on the plus side and the evils of big pharma on the other.
Personally I think the quality of public discussion of and reporting about science has dropped greatly in the last few decades..
I expect that is what you are actually experiencing.
