Smallpox Vaccine Leads to Another Heart Attack Death

It appears one more person has fallen victim to the Smallpox heart connection. This time, the Centers for Disease Control reports that a 57-year-old Florida woman suffered a fatal heart attack two weeks after receiving the Smallpox vaccine.

The CDC says that so far three women, all in their 50's, have had heart attacks after the vaccine. Two have died. Four other vaccine volunteers have shown heart related problems since the injections.

But as NewsChannel 11 told you after the first heart attack death of a Maryland woman, scientists don't know if this latest death points to the vaccine or coincidence since the Florida woman had high blood pressure, which already makes her at increased risk of a heart attack.
