As you may know, I (attorney Richard Stevens) have written several blog posts in opposition to the mandatory military anthrax vaccinations. Please see:
I haven’t written any posts on the military anthrax vaccination program in quite some time. However, I was just alerted to an article on the subject that is definitely worth reading. It’s an article by Deborah Rudacille of the Baltimore Examiner. In her article, Ms. Rudacille reports:
“Between 1998 and 2000, the first two years of the mandatory vaccination program, approximately 20,765 troops were hospitalized, according to vaccination data that the Pentagon long withheld from lawmakers. The illnesses ranged from systemic reactions such as numbness, joint pain and extreme fatigue to autoimmune diseases such as lupus, musculo-skeletal disorders and other chronic conditions.
It is impossible to say with certainty how many have fallen ill after getting the shots because no one is keeping exact count.
The Food and Drug Administration, however, has confirmed 21 deaths following anthrax vaccination…”
So many servicemen and women have apparently been injured by these vaccinations, and I have still to see any data suggesting the vaccine has saved even one person. Yet, the combination of huge defense contracts and the DoD’s refusal to admit they were/are wrong will not allow the vaccination program to die – while the vaccination continues to cause military members to become ill and die.

Why is it that we will have to wait on the judgment of history to acknowledge the initial impulsiveness and lingering (and tragic) stupidity of this program? Money and hard-headedness, that’s why.
