         The World
         Since                                                       (revised Jan 7, 2002 – 0030 hrs)
         11th                        Jan. 7, 2003, 16:00 PST (FTW) -- With mounting evidence of the dangers
                                     inherent in mass smallpox vaccinations and widespread skepticism about the
         C.I.A. & Drugs              efficacy and need for such measures, a clear pattern is emerging that perhaps
         Politics                    the U.S. government and its allies -- particularly Israel -- are not going to have
                                     an easy sell with these programs.
         Conflicts                   The Washington Post reported on Dec. 18 that two "prominent teaching
         The Economy                 hospitals" are refusing to vaccinate their employees against smallpox, even
                                     though their staffs would be among the first responders in the event of a
         Pandora's Box               biological attack. Officials at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta and at the
         Hall of Unsung              Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond cited the risk of dangerous side
         Heroes                      effects and possible inadvertent contamination of patients by vaccinated workers
                                     as grounds for their refusals.

                                     In Israel, as reported by Ha'aretz on Dec. 30, "Nearly half of the Meuhedet
                                     HMO's staff [in Tel Aviv] have refused to take the smallpox vaccine being offered
         The Forum
                                     by the government." The refusals are widespread throughout the Israeli health
         Upcoming                    care system and have also included some members of Israel's security forces
         Events                      and rescue squads.

                                     These refusals are as much a PR blow to the Bush Administration and the Israeli
                                     government as anything else. And they indicate that significant portions of the

                                     place, which would allow the government to make refusing a vaccination a

                                     The global vaccines market is currently dominated by four large pharmaceutical
