In brief: Why not Mexico ?

I'm sure you can find someone in the border clinics to offer such a bogus vaccine.
If it was safe, effective and of proven value it would be available here. The approval process takes time, but it is not, as you may read on line, something docs don't want to have or you to know about. "A fool and his money are soon parted "

In brief: Politics will make

It difficult to go to cuba.
Getting a visa with a us passport and permission from the us embassy is not easy. You can access from countrieswith relations: canada, venezuela for instance, but return to us can be a problem. And i wold not go for an unproven vaccine...Makes little sense. Best wishes and good luck.

of you can go to UK and see if you are eligible for the study using the vaccine there. They would open the study soon there.

In brief: No such thing

There is no such thing as a lung cancer vaccine.
I'm not sure what you are referring to in cuba but it is not in any other country. You might be referring to a flu or pneumonia vaccine which is available in the U.S. The only effective and scientifically tested vaccine for cancer that is available in the world is for hpv which causes cervical cancer.

In brief: Be wise and careful

There have been news that the cuban group is able to conduct a phase iii study using cimavax-egf vaccine to treat lung cancer- and reported that the study was positive.
The problem is nobody can confirm that the data is valid. Now, there will be a clinical trial hopefully opened soon in uk to answer the question- check http://clinicaltrial.Gov/ct2/show/nct01444118?Term=lung+cancer+vaccine&rank=15.
