Six is to high number for people to develop problems with a vaccine. Usually like with any other drug some people is sensitive to them and will devolope some kind of adverse reaction It does not say if all this people received the vaccine at the same time from the same bach.

signa: I have to admit I was skeptical about this, especially where anti-malarial drugs are concerned. These types of drugs are notorious for their adverse reactions, but because the actual disease is worse than most reactions, it becomes a lesser of two evils philosophy.

Anyhoo, I found this article by Consumer Reports and I was floored. This drug was developed, by the military interestingly enough, in 1975. The FDA took 14 years to approve it. Information obtained by Consumer Reports shows that the neuropsychiatrict reactions are as high as 25%. This is appalling.

Here's the link, it's well worth the read.www.consumerreports.org...
