Your organization knows that one of them will be a useful vaccine, but you don't know which one. You also know that the other one is likely to be deadly to most people.

Once you figure out which substance is the vaccine you can use it to save millions of lives. The only way to identify the vaccine is for you yourself to secretly test the substances on a minimum of 200 patients in the Bureau of Health facilities, against their will.
