- Heath districts all over the nation are mobilizing to
mass vaccinate entire populations within their service areas against smallpox.
The Idaho Observer and Vaccination Liberation are mobilizing to counter
a mass vaccination campaign that could result in the worst public health
disaster in human history.
- The IO, in cooperation with VacLib will publish an eight-page
edition called, ãThe Smallpox Alertä that will contain a full
history of smallpox, smallpox vaccination and details of the mass vaccination
plan. The edition will also include the packet insert for the Dryvax smallpox
vaccine and reviews of studies published in medical journals. ãWe
intend to orchestrate eight pages of science and common sense to derail
the Bush administration plans to vaccinate America against smallpox. We
will also publish some basic, inexpensive health and nutrition protocols
that promote health and disease resistance,ä said VacLib President
- This story is developing very fast. It will be a race
to reach enough Americans with accurate smallpox information before the
CDC announces the one case that will put the national mass vaccination
machinery into motion.
- Voluntary or involuntary?
- Early last November Panhandle Health District (PHD) Director
Jeanne Bock told Cassel that the smallpox vaccine would ãalways
be voluntary.ä We have since been getting reports which indicate
Bock lied. A captain of the Grants Pass, OR. Police Department told Paul
Walter editor of www.NewsWithViews.com at a special City Council meeting
December 2, 2002 that he will get the shot or, ã...be arrested as
a health risk to others.ä
- A nurse in Spokane described the intense organizational
activity going on at this time. She also said that people who refuse the
shot, even those who are contraindicated with skin disorders or immune
dysfunction, will be arrested.
- Bonner County Sheriff Phil Jarvis reportedly explained
that they are expecting mobs of people fighting to be first in line to
get their shots. He told several witnesses that he has the authority to
declare martial law if things get out of hand and that he wouldnât
hesitate to do it.
- A shot with every Americanâs name on it
- In October, 2001, the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) released the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act which,
if adopted, would allow states to declare medical martial law. October,
2001 was also the month Department of Health and Human Services Secretary
Tommy Thompson announced that his agency was arranging to secure 300 million
doses of smallpox vaccine÷one dose for every American.
- Secretary Thompson believes that terrorists are planning
to attack Americans with smallpox and that mass vaccination will protect
them. Since The IO became aware of the federal governmentâs plan
to vaccinate every American against smallpox it has published several
articles that prove Thompsonâs plans are scientifically flawed. Both
science and field experience indicate that the plan is likely to precipitate
a public health disaster of unprecedented proportions.
- Thompsonâs plan comes together
- Last September 22, the CDC released a 49-page report
to the nationâs public health community that details how to vaccinate
millions of people within days. The report also instructed local health
districts to forward a copy of their mass vaccination plan to the CDC by
November 22, 2002. Bock sent a letter dated Nov. 13, 2002, to community
leaders and elected officials, doctors, nurses, paramedics, police, firemen,
school administrators and staff asking them to volunteer to help mass vaccinate
their communities. ãPanhandle Health is requesting your help in
responding to an urgent directive from the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention to develop a plan for mass immunization against smallpox.
The requirement would provide for Îpost-eventâ mass immunization÷vaccinating
180,000 residents [the entire population of the five northern counties
of Idaho comprising the Panhandle Health District].ä
- As of Nov. 4, 2002, PHD has enlisted the support of over
1,050 volunteers. Mass vaccination clinics will be set up in area high
schools, hospitals and clinics.
- Bock is apparently counting on total cooperation from
north Idaho citizens who boast the lowest vaccination rate in the nation.
In an email message dated Dec. 1, 2002, Cassel reiterated several points
of concern with regard to mass vaccination against smallpox, particularly
with regard to the experimental nature of the Dryvax smallpox vaccine.
Cassel indicated her concern that the mass vaccination will likely be
followed by epidemics of secondary and systemic infections. Casselâs
concerns are justified as published science and vaccine packet inserts
provide a long list of people whose health conditions drastically increase
the risk of medical complications that include death.
- According to a handout PHD recently presented at a meeting
of retired police and firemen in Sandpoint, its ãvisionä during
the administration of the mass smallpox vaccination campaign is, ãTo
safeguard the public against acts of bioterrorism, other infectious disease
outbreaks and other public health emergencies.
- PHDâs ãvisionä appears to be purely
Orwellian. The nationâs most influential medical associations have
publicly stated their opposition to mass vaccination against smallpox.
Citing the likelihood that such a campaign will spread, rather than prevent
the disease and will cause significant numbers of people to suffer permanent
injuries and death, the American Academy of Physicians and Surgeons, the
American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the
American Association of Family Physicians all oppose mass vaccination against
- The plan
- Once the CDC sounds the alarm that one case of smallpox
has been diagnosed, health districts all over the nation will be prompted
to spring their mass vaccination plans into action. The trigger will be
based on the claim that, because vaccination wiped out smallpox, just one
reported case will indicate that we are under attack.
- According to the CDC, smallpox is clinically indistinguishable
from cowpox and monkeypox, diseases that occur regularly in third world
countries where people are subjected to poor nutrition and unsanitary conditions.
- Therefore, the claim that one case of smallpox will indicate
we are under attack is based on fraud.
- Once the mass vaccinations begin, potential recipients
will be subjected to traige and instructed to fill out forms. Triage will
categorize people by visible physical condition; the forms will require
the disclosure of personal medical information and will relieve the staff,
the medical facility and PHD of all liability for sickness and death that
may result from the vaccine.
- Recipients will then be given an orientations and will
see a video on smallpox produced by the CDC. There will then be a review,
after which people will either go right in to be given the shot or given
a physical evaluation to determine if the evaluee is at risk for complications
from the shot.
- Shot worse than disease
- For the October, 2002 edition of The IO we frontpaged
photos of children who contracted smallpox from the vaccine. In its natural
state, ordinary quarantine procedures and sanitation are sufficient to
stop the spread of smallpox. The vaccine, however, produces a pustule at
the site of injection that is extremely contagious and spreads on contact.
Eyes, ears and noses ãsecondarily inoculatedä with fluid from
the pustule that erupts at the injection site become hideously disfigured
- There is no credible science that justifies the planned
smallpox vaccination campaign. Previous editions of The IO (May, June,
July, August, Sept., Oct., 2002), available at http://www.idaho-observer.com
have covered the high points of the science that indicates mass vaccination
will spread an extremely virulent form of the disease. Copies of The Smallpox
Alert will be available by December 18, 2002÷just in time for Christmas÷for
ten cents apiece for 100 copies. If you wish to help us defeat this potentially
devastating campaign by circulating the facts, or receive pervious editions
of The IO that contain smallpox info, contact The IO at (208) 255-2307.
