Smallpox Decision

July 09, 2002

I've got an idea that might be too revolutionary for those nincompoops in Washington to comprehend ("More in Hospitals Will Be in Need of Smallpox Vaccine," July 7). How about making the smallpox vaccination available to everyone and let each American make his or her own decision on whether the risks are worth it, as we do for all of our other shots--like the flu shot, which has as many risks of adverse reaction as the smallpox vaccination?
