Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed product insert

The insert was redacted in 2002, to reflect a more accurate systemic adverse reaction rate of between “5-35%.”

Judicial Rulings

Civil Action No. 03-707 preliminary injunction on the Department of Defense’s Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program

In the ruling, the Honorable Judge Emmet Sullivan noted the discrepancy between the first anthrax vaccine product insert and the redacted version after many of us already had to take the shots: “The AVA product insert, which originally stated that the adverse reaction rate to the vaccine was 0.2 percent, was recently revised to reflect an adverse reaction rate between 5.0 percent and 35.0 percent.” (page 7)

In the ruling, Judge Sullivan declared: “Having found that AVA is an investigational drug under 10 U.S.C. § 1107, the Court is persuaded that requiring a person to submit to an inoculation without informed consent or the presidential waiver is an irreparable harm for which there is no monetary relief.” (page 32)

Also: “The women and men of our armed forces put their lives on the line every day to preserve and safeguard the freedoms that all Americans cherish and enjoy. Absent an informed consent or presidential waiver, the United States cannot demand that members of the armed forces also serve as guinea pigs for experimental drugs.” (page 33)

Civil Action No. 03-707 second ruling re-instating the injunction

Project Badger Documents

Project Badger is the classified project which developed some military vaccines, such as the anthrax vaccine. I am sure that all of the really relevant and incriminating documents, such as the information on the experimental additives, will not see the light of day for a long, long time. The DoD officials who took part in the project have not exactly been forthcoming on their activities. For further information, see: Below are some of the declassified documents.
