Smallpox Vaccine
Military Vaccine Resource Directory.

Smallpox, one of the deadliest diseases to hit mankind, was eradicated by 1977. Many credit the smallpox vaccine, yet the vaccine itself is known to be dangerously reactive. Again, there is a debate as to how much of a threat smallpox may be, when used as a biological weapon - and just who may have the capabilities of using it.

The Department of Defense now makes the smallpox vaccine another mandatory vaccine for our troops facing certain deployments. And yet...

  1. the old vaccine was never subjected to controlled clinical trials
  2. the new vaccine will not have to be proven effective in humans
  3. standards for safety will be lowered to fast-track production
  4. vaccine manufacturers, as well as healthcare providers -- physicians -- will be protected from liability for any vaccine-induced injuries or deaths, which are likely to occur

These four points come from the National Vaccine Information Center
