Anthrax Vaccine: Committee Demands STOP PROGRAM

On March 9, 2000, the subcommittee on National Security, Veterans’ Affairs and International Relations released a report regarding the DOD Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program in the U.S.

According to the report, the program was found “unsustainable in its present form due to unreliable vaccine supply” and it was recommended that the mandatory immunization effort be suspended “until DOD does the clinical research and testing that should have been done before the program began.”

The report states that the current vaccine program is “imploding” and that the “simplistic, one-sided approach to this complex issue only reinforces the legacy of suspicion and mistrust inherited from past military medical misadventures: atomic testing, Agent Orange, Gulf War drugs and vaccines.”

The report states that the anthrax vaccine is “still being studied as a possible causative or contributing factor in Gulf War veterans’ illnesses” and points out the numbers that have become ill after taking the vaccine as well as those that have given up a career of service for refusing the vaccine.
