Health Districts mobilizing for mass smallpox vaccination campaign

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, "The Smallpox Alert" 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. "We 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," said VacLib President Ingri Cassel.

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 "always be voluntary." We have
since been getting reports which indicate Bock lied. A captain of the
Grants Pass, OR. Police Department told Paul Walter editor of at a special City Council meeting December 2, 2002
that he will get the shot or, " arrested as a health risk to others."

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

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 wouldn't hesitate to do it. A shot
with every American's 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 government's plan to vaccinate every
American against smallpox it has published several articles that prove
Thompson's plans are scientifically flawed. Both science and field
experience indicate that the plan is likely to precipitate a public health
disaster of unprecedented proportions.

Thompson's plan comes together

Last September 22, the CDC released a 49-page report to the nation's 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.
"Panhandle 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 'post-event' mass immunization-vaccinating 180,000 residents [the
entire population of the five northern counties of Idaho comprising the
Panhandle Health District]."

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

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. Cassel's 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 "vision" during the administration of
the mass smallpox vaccination campaign is, "To safeguard the public against
acts of bioterrorism, other infectious disease outbreaks and other public
health emergencies.

PHD's "vision" appears to be purely Orwellian. The nation's 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
"secondarily inoculated" 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 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.
