Even in the U.S., there is a concerted effort on the part of a vocal minority to undermine all vaccines. Those never exposed to the ravages of polio, whooping cough, diphtheria and tetanus, carry on strident campaigns against vaccines, blaming them for autism spectrum disorders and other developmental problems of children. In this anti-vaccine atmosphere, the CIA indulges in a pretend vaccine program, of all the places in Pakistan, where resistance to vaccines is not unusual. The CIA defends itself by saying that under its auspices real doctors administered real Hepatitis B vaccines to real people in Abbotabad. While it may have set up an elaborate ruse, the CIA feels absolved because it followed the Hepatitis B vaccination protocol. Except, and this the CIA does not admit, instead of revaccinating children at one month after the first vaccine dose in one suburb of Abbotabad, the CIA's undercover doctors simply moved on to Osama bin Laden's lair in an entirely different suburb, the Hepatitis B protocol taking a back seat to the excitement of revenge and nail-biting drama.
