I don't see the problem, bunch of babies is all I see. Scared of a bloody needle.

The story fails to tell why the Michigan based BioPort Corp. lost federal approval. I think that I read somewhere that the vaccine was contaminated. I don't think that I would want anything that was contaminated shot into my body either.

Untill the Pentagon tells us the truth about the Gulf War Syndrome I think that the vaccine should be an option, not an order.

Pentagon spokesman, James Turner says it's not "unduly dangerous". (And Agent Orange won't hurt you.)

Would I take the shot? Not even maybe!

It's not the needle that anyone should be scared of, it is the
effects ten, twenty, or thirty years later that you active duty
guys and ladies should be worried about. I let them shoot
me with an air gun to give the "required" vaccinations, and now,
with my liver failing, and on the verge of dying at age 48, because
of the "required" vaccination, I wish that I had told them to
stick their needles some where else. A very good rule of thumb
to follow is test everything by logic, and if it fails, get away from
it. Semper Fidelis, Tom Murray

I agree with greensideout on this matter! They need to look into this more then they have! They need to ask James Turner if he would take the shot! Matter of fact, ask Congress if they will, to prove how safe it is!! I would normally follow orders, but not in this case!!

"I think we had a poll".

Now that problems have began to show up, do you feel the same?

Tough call. I never would have worried about it until I seen what AO did. Dad passed away last year with 80% of the autopsy findings being linked to AO symptoms. I guess I would have taken it with the hope that our leaders/government would have gone to bat for us if something came up.
