Robin Cook, author, Coma: “Yes. The problem is you can’t take antibiotics after the fact.”

His Holiness Rael: “No. It’s only paranoia brought on by the media, as Bowling for Columbine shows. This movie should be compulsory in every school.”

Dr. Bob Arnot, MSNBC: “I was out with the Marines last week off the coast of Iraq. They all got the vaccine, and I didn't. I don't think Iraq has it, I don't think they're going to use it.

Frank Bello, bassist, Anthrax: “People have a hard enough time over getting a flew [sic] shot because of the flew-like symptoms afterwards. Do you get ‘smallpox’-like symptoms? No thanks—too scary.”

John Rennie, editor-in-chief, Scientific American: “My vaccination could infect others. It’s a live virus, and technically, for a short time after, you can spread some of that virus yourself.”

John T. Odermatt, commissioner, Office of Emergency Management: “Yes.”
