President Bush: We are ready. Today the president ordered members of the u.s. military serving in high-risk areas to take the small pox vaccine. He is also asking that emergency medical workers and response teams our first line of defense against a home-grown attack be inoculated as well. He says the vaccine will be available for the general public but is not recommending most people get the shot. Stand-up bridge: Officials say for every million shots given at least 1 person will

suffer life-long complications.

Its scary its scary. Some emergency medical workers admit they are concerned about the risk but. Emergency worker...no name: If it could help me help other people and do my job then Ill definitely do it. Small Pox which was eradicated world wide in 1980 is a highly contagious disease that kills 30 percent of its victims.

The president says the vaccinations are precautionary...but he too will get the shot - adding he would never ask the military do do anything he would not. In NY..SC for CBS News.))
