MOD policy and steps prior to administering another Nations vaccine formula on its own troops

The request was successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

MOD have stated previously that it used USA formula for Anthrax during Gulf War 1

Did MOD take into account that USA are legally able to experiment on its own troops? ( It is part of their contract when they enlist)

What is MOD's current policy when considering using other nations untested experimental regimes?

Dear People-Sec-FOI Mailbox (MULTIUSER),

Thankyou for the reply,
Could you confirm with a yes or no if the formula for the British Anthrax was originally from the U.S. as stated by MOD before. Was this true or false data/information?

Q2 Did that formula include use of Pertusis?

Q3 Did the formula include or recommend the use of any adjuvant?
