Welcome to the website
of the Military and Biodefense Vaccine Project of the
The Military and Biodefense Vaccine Project is sponsored by the
). The MBVP and this website focuses
on the safety and effectiveness of vaccines that are being developed for
routine use in the military or for use by military personnel and civilians in
response to bioterror threats.
This website is dedicated to increasing
awareness about the benefits and risks of military
biodefense vaccines, as well as federal and state legislation which
authorize mandatory use of experimental bioterrorism vaccines in military
and civilian settings without voluntary, informed consent.
Laws such as the Bioshield act and other post-9/11 legislation, will
shield vaccine manufacturers and public health agencies from
/ or liability for injuries or deaths that
are caused by mandated use of experimental vaccines. Many of these
vaccines will not have been proven safe and effective
before they are used on a mass basis.
This website contains a comprehensive collection of news reports,
resources and links to the most current information on our nation's
military and biodefense vaccine programs. It
has been created by experienced and
knowledgeable individuals with backgrounds in civilian and military vaccines, government
vaccine policies and legislation, biodefense research, medicine, law, information
technology and bioethics.
The MBVP is staffed by
individuals who have worked to insure informed consent
protections in U.S. civilian mass vaccination programs, and the
military mandatory anthrax vaccination program. We have worked
closely with the vaccine victims to help them, and their families.
dedicated to keeping you informed about the latest information on military
and bioterrorism vaccines,
including updates on current litigation and legislation, and reports from
those who have been adversely affected as a result of federal biodefense

in the U.S. military for nine years with the Army Guard and Air Guard in
Michigan. After receiving four mandatory anthrax vaccinations at age 25

peripheral vision, muscle and joint pain and weakness, abdominal
cramping, memory loss, chronic migraine and disabling fatigue) and she
refused to receive a fifth anthrax vaccination. When she refused to be
re-vaccinated, she was forced out the military and has worked
since then to assist military personnel who have been injured by anthrax
vaccine reactions and protect their informed consent rights. To learn
