Pentagon to resume mandatory anthrax shots for some

first_img “It is clear nobody likes getting shots if they don’t have to,” Winkenwerder said, as quoted in an Oct 17 Los Angeles Times story. “We have been sending a signal that it is not as important as we believe it is.” In January 2005, the FDA granted a Pentagon request for emergency authority to restart the vaccination program, but said the shots had to be voluntary. DoD has been giving the shots on a voluntary basis since April 2005. Dec 19, 2005 CIDRAP News story: “FDA reaffirms worth of DoD anthrax vaccine” Zaid said, according to the AP, that he would file a new lawsuit “as soon as needles start going into arms.” Oct 16 DoD news releasehttp://www.defenselink.mil/Releases/Release.aspx?ReleaseID=10083 Under the voluntary policy, about 50% of the affected service members have accepted anthrax vaccination, Winkenwerder reported in the DoD news release. He commented, “This rate of vaccination not only put the service members at risk, but also jeopardized unit effectiveness and degraded medical readiness.” In December 2005, the FDA completed a final investigation of the vaccine and reaffirmed its earlier finding that it was safe and effective. An Oct 16 Department of Defense (DoD) news release said that “military personnel, emergency-essential DoD civilians, and contractors” in those areas will be required to receive the vaccine. The program also will include units involved in “homeland bioterrorism defense,” the statement said. The mandatory vaccination program has been the subject of a long legal battle. Soldiers concerned about the vaccine’s side effects sued to stop the program several years ago, arguing that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had never specifically approved the vaccine for preventing inhalational anthrax. In December 2003 a federal judge in Washington, DC, ordered the program stopped. Winkenwerder said “several hundreds of thousands” of troops will receive the vaccine, according to an Oct 17 United Press International story. The story said that about 140,000 troops are stationed in Iraq, 30,000 in Korea, and tens of thousands in Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and other Middle Eastern countries. An Oct 17 Reuters report put the number of troops in Afghanistan at 21,000. Another vaccine critic is the National Vaccine Information Center, a nonprofit advocacy group. Its president, Barbara Loe Fisher, told the AP, “The [DoD] has a moral duty to fully disclose anthrax vaccine risks, as well as benefits, to soldiers and allow them to make an informed, voluntary vaccination decision.”center_img “This is a vaccine that is unproven, unnecessary and has the potential to jeopardize the health of a service member where little benefit will be derived,” said Mark S. Zaid, an attorney who first challenged the vaccination program, as quoted by the Associated Press (AP) yesterday. “It’s always been a public relations program and nothing more,” he added. The announcement of the program’s resumption is generating renewed resistance. The FDA quickly responded with an affirmation that the vaccine was safe and effective for all forms of anthrax disease, and the judge then lifted his injunction. But in October 2004 he stopped the program again, ruling that the FDA had not followed proper procedures in issuing the new approval. “The vaccine has been thoroughly reviewed by several independent outside groups” and the FDA, Winkenwerder said in the Times story. “In all the studies we have performed, looking very, very thoroughly at the vaccine, there is no increase in mortality, there is no increase in morbidity, there is no increase in hospitalizations.” “The anthrax vaccine will protect our troops from another threat—a disease that will kill, caused by a bacteria that already has been used as a weapon in America, and that terrorists openly discuss,” said Dr. William Winkenwerder Jr., assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, in the DoD release. Critics of the program have said the vaccine—Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed—can cause problems like infertility and autoimmune disorders, such as multiple sclerosis and lupus, according to the Los Angeles Times story. The article also said some soldiers died after being vaccinated, but the Pentagon said that no causal link to the vaccine was established. Oct 19, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The Pentagon announced this week that it will resume, after a 2-year hiatus, mandatory anthrax vaccination for troops and other personnel stationed in the Middle East and South Korea.

Field hockey knocks off Michigan

An offensive burst led the No. 19 Ohio State field hockey team to a win over rival Michigan Sunday.Sophomore forward Maria Briones led the Buckeyes with two first-half goals in the 4-3 victory.Freshman forward Berta Queralt also scored in the first half for the Buckeyes. Queralt drilled her shot into the top shelf, pushing the Buckeyes’ lead to 2-0.“It was just a beautiful goal,” coach Anne Wilkinson said. Michigan struck back just two minutes later, but Briones’ second goal pushed the Buckeyes’ lead to 3-1 at the half. Early in the second half, OSU increased the lead to three when junior Aisling McKeon finished a pass from Queralt.Both Briones and Queralt admitted that the Buckeyes relaxed after building the three-goal lead, letting Michigan back into the game. The letdown forced the Buckeyes to fend off a late Michigan rally led by midfielder Meredith Way, who finished the game with two goals and an assist.The Wolverines scored two unanswered goals, making it 4-3. “They kept coming at us, which we knew they would,” Wilkinson said.The Buckeyes are now 3-2 against the Wolverines in their last five meetings. OSU also improved to 8-1 at home this season and has won 10 of its last 11 games overall.The Buckeyes improved to 3-1 in the Big Ten with the victory and are now second place in the conference. OSU will battle Michigan State for the conference’s top spot Wednesday in East Lansing, Mich. MSU is currently first in the Big Ten at 3-0. read more

Schottenstein Center briefly evacuated during Ohio State mens basketball game

The Schottenstein Center was evacuated briefly during the Ohio State men’s basketball game on Dec. 16, 2017. Credit: Lantern file photoEarly in the second half of the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s game against Appalachian State Saturday evening at the Schottenstein Center, everyone in the building was told to evacuate.During a stoppage of play, the fire alarms sounded, triggering an audible alert throughout the building that ordered people inside the facility to leave.Colin Thompson, the general manager of the Schottenstein Center, said the fire alarm went off due to the failure of an exhaust fan in a concession stand. The failure of the fan caused the smoke to build up and eventually set off the alarm.Less than 10 minutes later, fans re-entered the arena and the game resumed shortly thereafter. There were no injuries during the evacuation.“All building systems performed exactly how they were designed,” Thompson said. “We were really pleased with the way the staff responded. We really apologize for the interruption.”This was the first evacuation in the history of the Schott during a game. read more

Neves must stay at Wolves – Deco

first_imgRuben Neves must remain at Wolves for next season and focus on his first season of Premier League football, says DecoThe Portuguese midfielder was shockingly sold to Championship club Wolves last summer in a £13m deal from FC Porto, despite having become the Champions League’s youngest ever captain at 19 with the club.Neves’ impressive performances in England this term have reportedly attracted the interest of Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who is looking for new midfielders this summer due to the retirement of captain Michael Carrick and the expected departure of Marouane Fellaini.Deco, who won the Champions League with Mourinho at Porto in 2004, has advised his compatriot to reject any interest from his former boss and instead focus on his debut campaign in the Premier League.“I need to confess that when Porto sold him to Wolves I didn’t understand because he was young, he could be one of the best players in Porto – but this is business for the club,” the former Barcelona midfielder told Sky Sports.“At that time I didn’t understand why they sold him, but for him, it was good because he’s won the Championship, now he will be in the Premier League.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…He’s young and has a good future. I’m happy for him.”Deco feels that Neves has performed above expectations in English football and should now forget about leaving Wolves for now.“He’s doing his career step by step. Normally when a player is doing well, everybody says he needs to change to a big club, but I think he’s doing his job. He needs to wait, he’s young,” he said.“He did well in the Championship when people maybe believed that would not be possible.“If I was him I would just relax now and enjoy the Premier League.“When Nuno went there the people in Portugal started to look at Wolves in a different way.”last_img read more
