Volunteers Needed for Anthrax Vaccine

NIH: Clinical Research Studies
Title: Anthrax Vaccine Clinical Trials
Adults who are in good health and children who are in good health may be eligible for this study. The involvement of 350 adult volunteers and 100 children in first and second grade is planned.

And I ask, what parent in their right mind would sign-up their 6- or 7-year old as a volunteer to receive an experimental vaccine??!! And anthrax?!

Same day, different email, I get a story from the Las Vegas Sun (whatever...) about the suspected effects the anthrax vaccine has had on a few other disposable American citizens. The opening para reads:
More than 1,200 military personnel who received the anthrax vaccine before going to Iraq have developed serious illnesses, according to an Army report released last month, though local military officials contend the shots still are safe and necessary.
If you want to sign your kid up for the FREE anthrax vaccines, visit the National Institutes of Health site to get all the exciting details.

That would be Institute of Health in the same way as George Orwell's, 1984 Ministry of Peace, wouldn't it?

And if you haven't read 1984...please stop reading my blog. If you want to keep reading, you can download 1984 for FREE at the very cool site, Online Literature.
