The Wall Street Journal reports on side effects from anthrax vaccine, which have put the U.S. Army in a difficult position. The story reveals that hundreds of soldiers have claimed harm or disability from the anti-anthrax shots, and 102 people have been court-martialed for refusing to take the vaccine. The article follows the developments in the army anthrax vaccination program in recent years, and exposes failures in the performance of BioPort, the military's anthrax vaccine supplier.
