End of U.S. Anthrax Program Urged

From Nando Media comes an article titled: “House members urge ‘immediate halt’ to anthrax program”

The May 16th report from Nando Media states that “Defense Secretary William Cohen should bring an ‘immediate halt’ to the anthrax vaccination program, according to a letter signed by more than two dozen House members.”

According to the article, the letter comes from Rep. Jack Metcalf and it primarily points out the “recent findings and criticisms” regarding the anthrax vaccine program in the U.S.

According to the article, the letter states that the vaccine program “is a flawed policy that should be immediately stopped.”

Also mentioned in the article was information from an Institute of Medicine report that said, “There is a paucity of published peer-reviewed literature on the safety of anthrax vaccine.”

And just to be fair, according to the article, “Pentagon and Food and Drug Administration officials have said repeatedly the vaccine is safe and effective.”
