20 Reasons Not To Take the New Smallpox Vaccine
by Amy Worthington

1. George W. Bush has said of smallpox vaccination: "One of my concerns if we were to have universal vaccination, some might lose their life."
~The Times (in London), November 09, 2001

2. For each million people vaccinated with the smallpox vaccine, as many as 250 would suffer serious adverse reactions including death, according to the American Medical Association. Multiply 250 times 285 (millions of Americans) and the the estimated serious adverse reactions from universal smallpox vaccination could equal 71,250.
~ Journal of the American Medical Association, June 9, 1999, Vol. 281, No. 22, p. 2132

3. "The American Medical Association said on Tuesday it was not in favor of an immediate mass U.S. smallpox vaccination program, saying the potential threat of a bioterror attack did not warrant inoculating every American against the disease."
~Reuters, December 12, 2001

4. "Right now the risk of getting the vaccine is higher than the benefit. You could get a secondary infection, a full-blown systemic infection."
~Marie Rau, Panhandle Health District nurse, quoted by The Spokesman-Review, November 20, 2001

5. CDC director Jeffrey Koplan has admitted that universal smallpox vaccination could unleash a significant number of side-effects. He said that because many parts of our population do not have a "robust immune system," a fair number of people could have serious reactions.
~Koplan speaking on the PBS special "Bioterror Propaganda" aired by WETA, November 14, 2001

6. If the entire nation were to receive a smallpox vaccine, several thousand people would likely develop encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain.
~Washington Post, Dec. 26, 2001

7. Roger J. Pomerantz, chief of the infectious disease department at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, said that doctors have no idea what the smallpox vaccine might do to people at the extremes of life--less than 2 and older than 65. He said that an even greater concern would be its effect on people with weakened immune systems from HIV infection, chemotherapy or transplants.
~Washington Post, Dec. 26, 2001

8. "Researchers have been reluctant to recommend a new vaccination program which would use the smallpox vaccine for the local population because the vaccine can cause disease and death in persons with inadequate immune systems."
~ Science, Vol. 277, July 18, 1997, pp. 312-13.

9. Routine smallpox vaccination in the United States ended in 1972. Officials are hesitant to resume the immunizations because the vaccine is the most reactive of all and has been linked to serious side effects, including death.
~ Reuters, November 29, 2001.

10. Eight printed pages of medical studies documenting the many serious side effects of smallpox vaccination can be obtained at: See "smallpox vaccine adverse reactions 66-76." [Note: go to the home page above and put smallpox vaccine adverse reaction in the search engine.] Repercussions include serious brain and heart diseases, autism, abnormal chromosomal changes, diabetes, various cancers and leukemias, plus demyelination of nerve tissue years after vaccination.

11. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that vaccination must not be forced on persons whose physical condition would make such vaccination "cruel and inhuman." In other words, the state has no right to command that an individual sacrifice his life in the name of public health.
~Jacobsen V. Massachusettes, 197 U.S. 11 (1905).

12. By the 1920s, several British medical researchers documented that smallpox was not only more common among the VACCINATED, but that the DEATH RATE from smallpox was actually higher among those who had been vaccinated. This indicates that the vaccine was ineffective and predisposed vaccinated persons to more lethal disease.
~Vaccination, Dr. Viera Scheibner, Australia, 1993, pp. 205-220.

13. Getting a vaccination does not guarantee immunity.
~CDC, January 28, 1994.

14. By 1987, scientific evidence indicated that the World Health Organization's 13-year global smallpox vaccination campaign may have awakened dormant HIV infection in many vaccinees.
~Times (in London) May 11, 1987.

15. Vaccines made from animal substrate contain animal viruses that are impossible to filter out. By 1961, scientists discovered that animal viruses in vaccines, including smallpox, could act as a carcinogen when given to mice in combination with cancer-causing chemicals, even in amounts too small to induce tumors alone. They concluded that vaccine viruses function as a catalyst for tumor production.
~Science, December 15, 1961.

16. Some of the new smallpox vaccine doses will be created with animal substrate. Because the vaccine will incorporate vaccinia, the cowpox virus, many wonder about possible mad-cow contamination. Fifty-five million doses of the new vaccine will be created using a cell line dating back to 1966 and cultured from the lung tissues of an aborted human fetus.
~World Net Daily, December 4, 2001.

17. The new smallpox vaccine will be genetically engineered. Many scientists believe that genetically engineered vaccines may be responsible for the global epidemic of auto-immune disease and neurological dysfunction.
~American College of Rheumatology, annual meeting, Nov. 8-12, 1998. Merck's genetically engineered hepatitis B vaccine, Recombivax HB, is a classic example. According to Dr. Bonnie Dunbar of Baylor College of Medicine, many thousands of reported adverse reactions to the hepatitis B vaccine include: chronic fatigue, neurological disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and MS-like disease.
~Testimony of Dr. Dunbar to Texas Dept. of Health, March 12, 1999. Over 15,000 French citizens sued the French government to stop mandatory hep B injections for school children because of resulting auto-immune diseases.
~Science, July 31, 1998. Dr. John Classen has published voluminous data showing that the hepatitis B and other vaccines are closely linked to the development of insulin dependent diabetes.
~Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice, October 22, 1997

18. The British vaccine manufacturer Medeva has a horrendous record of contamination and blunders. In 2000, the FDA found that Medeva was making vaccines in conditions of filth, resulting in contaminated products. Medeva had been illegally using bovine medium to culture its polio vaccines, then lied about it. Medeva also used the blood of a Creutzfeldt-Jakob victim (mad cow) to manufacture 83,000 doses of polio vaccine used for (against?) Irish children. Nevertheless, the FDA allowed the USA to accept Medeva's flu vaccine (Fluvirin) for the year 2000.
~London Observer series: October 20-26, 2000

19. In 2001, the British socialized health care system was reported to be in a state of collapse, with many hospitals and labs operating in abysmal filth. Five thousand people die each year from infections contracted in British hospitals; 10,000 become deathly ill from such infections. Sterilization procedures are barely adequate and said to be risking the spread of mad cow disease. Government ministers are reportedly trying to hush up the scandal. Jan 06, 2001; The Sunday Times of London, November 12, 2001.

20. The U.S. government apparently intends to conduct NO double blind studies on the safety and efficacy of the new smallpox vaccine. It has ordered 286 million doses, one for every man, woman and child in America at a cost of $428 million. At least half of this vaccine will be delivered by Acambis PLC of great Britain.

Tip of the Week: Keep all vaccine needles away from your body!

Reason 21. [An edited version of Gary Krasner's additional comments]

21. Three fundemental flaws exist:

A. The smallpox vaccine, just as childhood vaccines are now, will be underwritten by the taxpayers, because since the late 1970�s, all private insurance companies in the U.S. have refused to insure vaccine products. But the Vaccine Injury Compensatin Program is under-funded and is highly adversarial. Each injury claim is now opposed by taxpayer funded government lawyers and hired medical experts. The procedure for hearing claims is complicated, drawn-out, and hostile to petitioners, resulting in most claims being denied. Funds that have been awarded have been meager, usually falling far below the total costs incurred by families over the long term. Compensation is also awarded too late long after medical and related expenses bankrupt the family. Bottom line: Since 1986, the year the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was introduced, the pharmaceutical industry was released of all liability from death or disability caused by their vaccine products. In fact, even with the introduction of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System in 1991, when the same vaccine lot number was reported as being associated with a significant number of deaths and permanent disabilities, the manufacturer was left with the responsibility of pulling the vaccine off the market. To date, the pharmaceutical industry has NEVER voluntarily pulled a vaccine product from the market due to numerous adverse reactions. In other words, "hot" lots continue to damage more and more children since there is no legal means for removing them from the marketplace. With a system like this in place, it is no wonder that vaccine manufacturers have no incentive to make vaccines safer (as if this were even possible.)

B. While vaccines remain unsafe, they have been made legally compulsory. As a result, NVIC�s Barbara Loe Fisher writes, "the public has been unable to apply pressure on the system to improve the product or to remove dangerous vaccines from the market. In other words, vaccines are treated uniquely in the free enterprise system. As consumers, we can bring very little economic pressure on the system to have that product improved or removed, because all of us are required by law to use it." Actually, if it weren't for the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, all would be well with the free enterprise system since vaccine manufacturers would be liable for injuries that result from their products.

C. Federal health agencies that are responsible for the safety and success of vaccination programs, also rule on the types of injuries that qualify as vaccine related, individual compensation claims, and the amount of compensation to be awarded. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has published various accounts of cover-ups and deceptions, through the Freedom of Information Act. --But on October 12, Attorney General John Ashcroft urged federal agencies to resist most Freedom of Information Act requests made by American citizens. Thank God NVIC was able to get this dirt before it was too late!
