I recently stumbled across an email sent in 2019 from Travis Air Force Base’s 349th Medical Group with the subject line “100% Disability for Anthrax shots (bad lots),” and the content within is shocking. The Group Superintendent of 349th Medical Group addresses commanders within the organization and states, “I have been forwarded this information from several physicians and am now sending out to you for your members information. It appears that there were some lots of Anthrax from 2001-2007 given at certain bases that have given members medical issues.” She goes on to state that a VA rating is being given for conditions related to Anthrax administered from certain installations.
The email reads: “Attn: Those who have received the Anthrax series at Ft. Campbell and Drum, Hood from 2001-2007 for OEF/OIF, the VA is starting to rate 100% if you received the series due to bad batches. Per Director of VA. It will officially come out in August but you need to push this now.”
The following lot numbers are then listed for the bad batches:

The person who sent these emails to me told me they were quickly disavowed and the command came out and said the “email wasn’t valid.” However, the information in this email is quite comprehensive for them to simply get it wrong. When I looked at the date on this email, it made me wonder if something else was going on. The email is dated January of 2019. The world was less than a year away from COVID being introduced in what we now know was likely due to a lab leak. (Let me adjust my tinfoil hat ever so carefully); if I wanted to use the DOD as lab rats to test my new vaccine on, I sure as hell wouldn’t want them to be vaccine hesitant. I’d probably do the same thing as 349th Medical Group and simply say the email wasn’t valid and deny the information within.
Regardless, the information contained in this email needs to be investigated. Is the DOD aware of bad batches of Anthrax administered to its personnel, and if so, did the VA actually give a 100% disability rating for those who received it? We need answers right now.
