Coming to an arm near you, a smallpox poke to protect emergency healthcare workers from a future bioterrorism attack.
President Bush is preparing the order to inoculate one million Americans for smallpox in response to a possible future bioterrorism attack. The initial stage of the decision would see 500,000 military personnel and 510,000 civilian medical workers receive the jab. A secondary phase would see thousands of additional healthcare workers receive the jab.
Are you concerned about possible dangers inherent with the vaccine? If asked, will you accept or reject the innoculation?
According to the stories published today,
Los Angeles County has already ordered 20,000 doses.
