Readers call to tell their stories

SEVERAL victims contacted this newspaper yesterday after revelations about child vaccine trials.

People from across the country, and abroad, rang the newsroom to tell their own story.

It emerged that Mari Steed (50) was effectively used as a guinea pig during the 'four-in-one' vaccine trials carried out on her between December 1960 and October 1961, when she was between nine and 18 months old.

Anyone affected by the issues raised can call the Adoption Rights Alliance on 086 2359127.
