Demonstration Against Anthrax Vaccine Experiment on Children
Alliance for Human Research Protection
A Catalyst for Debate
Join the Demonstration organized by US soldiers who were harmed by the
anthrax vaccine and advocates for the protection of human subjects of
medical research to stop a proposed unethical anthrax vaccine experiment on
On Thursday, September 22, 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services
will meet in Washington DC, with its National Biodefense Science Board to
receive the DSMB report about whether to approve conducting an anthrax
vaccine test in children.
Reasons for the protest:
. No evidence that children are at risk of anthrax.
. The vaccine poses serious risks of harm:
the FDA approved Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed label states:
. "Approximately 6% of the reported [adverse] events were listed as
serious. Serious adverse events include those that result in death,
hospitalization, permanent disability or are life-threatening."
The children exposed to the anthrax vaccine risks will derive NO
BENEFIT from the experiment.
. For whose benefit is the government proposing to put children's
lives at risk of harm?
