History of Vaccines up to 1993
This is an extensive chronological chart of the history of vaccines as compiled by Val Valerian.
1712 First record of vaccinations for smallpox in France.
1717 Innoculation against smallpox instituted in England by Lady Mary
Montague after she returns from Turkey, where it was in a popular
experimental stage at the time.
1721 In the United States, a clergyman named Cotton Mather attempts to
introduce a crude form of smallpox vaccination by smearing smallpox pus
into scratches in healthy people. Over 220 people are treated during the
first six months of experimentation. Only six had no apparent reaction.
Mather was bitterly attacked for recommending this practice. Boston,
1722 In Wales, a Dr. Wright refers to inoculation against smallpox in the
British Isles as “an ancient practice”. A citizen of Wales, 99 years old,
states that inoculation had been known and used during his entire lifetime,
and that his mother stated it was common during her life, and that she got
smallpox through her “inoculation”.
1723 First record of smallpox immunization in Ireland, when a doctor in
Dublin inoculates 25 people. Three died, and the custom was briefly abandoned.
1724 First record of vaccination for smallpox in Germany. It soon fell into
disfavor due to the number of deaths. Years later, doctors were able to
1740 Smallpox epidemic in Berlin.
1754 Inoculation for smallpox introduced in Rome. The practice was soon
stopped because of the number of deaths it caused. Later, the medical
profession would successfully reintroduce it.
1763 Epidemic of smallpox in France wipes out a large part of the
population. It was immediately attributed to inoculation, and the practice
was prohibited by the French government for five years.
1768 The medical profession in France is successful in re-instituting
vaccination for smallpox.
1778 Danish physicians move to open two major vaccination houses in
Denmark, by order of the King.
1778 In Italy, infants were inoculated by Neapolitan nurses without the
knowledge of parents.
1790 Edward Jenner buys a medical degree from St. Andrews University for £15.
1791 Edward Jenner vaccinates his 18 month old son with swine-pox. In 1798
he vaccinates his son with cow-pox. His son will die of TB at the age of 21.
1796 Edward Jenner in Gloucestershire, England credited with concept of
vaccination. Jenner vaccinates an 8 year old boy with smallpox pus. Jenner
would vaccinate the boy 20 times. The boy would die from TB at the age of 20.
1798 General vaccine programs against cowpox instituted in the US.
1800 Benjamin Waterhouse at Harvard University introduces vaccination in
1801 First widespread experimentation with vaccines begins.
1802 The British government gives Edward Jenner £10,000 for continued
experimentation with “smallpox vaccine.” The paradigm that vaccines provide
“lifetime immunity” is abandoned, and the concept of “revaccination” is
1809 Massachusetts encourages its towns to make provision for the
vaccination of inhabitants with cow pox vaccines.
1810 The London Medical Observer (Vol.VI, 1810) publishes particulars of
“535 cases of smallpox after vaccination, 97 fatal cases of smallpox after
vaccination and 150 cases of serious injury from vaccination, ten of whom
were medical men.”
1822 The British government advances Edward Jenner another £20,000 for
“smallpox vaccine” experimentation. Jenner suppresses reports which
indicate his concept is causing more deaths than saving lives.
1831 Smallpox epidemic in Wurtemberg, Germany, where 995 vaccinated people
succumb to the disease.
1831 In Marseilles, France, 2000 vaccinated people are stricken with
1838 Smallpox epidemic in England.
1853 Smallpox epidemic in England.
1853 In England, the Compulsory Vaccination Act . From 1853 to 1860,
vaccination reached 75% of the live births and more than 90% of the
1853 Chloroform first used as anesthetic in England.
1855 Compulsory nature of Massachusetts vaccination statute firm, and a
pre- condition for school admittance. Statutes created in the belief it
would “protect children from smallpox.”
1857 Vaccination in England enforced by fines. Smallpox epidemic begins in
England that lasts until 1859. Over 14,000 die.
1860 Encyclopaedia Brittanica (8th Edition) states “nothing is more likely
to prove hurtful to the cause of vaccination and render the public careless
of securing to themselves its benefits, than the belief that they would
require to submit to re-vaccination every 10 to 15 years”. Later, in the
11th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the policy would change: “it
is desirable that vaccination should be repeated at the age of 7 to 10
years, and thereafter at intervals during life”.
1863 Second major epidemic of smallpox in England lasts until 1865. 20,000
1867 Vaccination Act of 1867 in England begins to elicit protest from the
population and increase in the number of anti-vaccination groups. It
compelled the vaccination of a baby within the first 90 days of its life.
Those who objected would be continually badgered by magistrates and fined
until the child turned 14. The law was passed on the assurance of medical
officials that smallpox vaccinations were safe.
1870 Third major smallpox epidemic in England begins and lasts until 1872.
Over 44,800 dies.
1871 In Birmingham, England from 1871 to 1874, there were 7,706 cases of
smallpox.Out of these, 6,795 had been vaccinated.
1871 In Bavaria, Germany, vaccination is compulsory and re-vaccination is
commonplace. Out of 30,472 cases of smallpox, 29,429 had been vaccinated.
1871 Worldwide epidemic of smallpox begins. Claims 8 million people worldwide.
1871 Select committee of the Privy Council convened to inquire into the
Vaccination Act of 1867 (England), as 97.5% of the people who died from
smallpox were vaccinated for it.
1872 Japan institutes compulsory smallpox vaccination. Within 20 years
165,000 smallpox cases manifest themselves.
1872 In England, 87% of infants are vaccinated for smallpox. Over 19,000
die in England and Wales. (See 1925).
1880 Smallpox vaccinations start in the United States.
1884 In England, Dr. Charles Creighton is asked to write an article for the
Encyclopedia Britannica on vaccination.After much research internationally,
he concludes that vaccination constituted “a gross superstition”. Later,
Creighton writes two books, “Cowpox and Vaccinal Syphilis” and “Jenner and
1884 In England, more that 1700 children vaccinated for smallpox die of
1884 Dr. Sobatta of the German Army reports on the results of vaccination
to the German Vaccination Commission, which subsequently publishes data
proving that re-vaccination does not work. Deaths from vaccination are
routinely covered up by physicians.
1886 A seven year period begins in Japan where 25,474,370 vaccinations and
re-vaccinations are performed in Japan, representing 66% of the entire
population of Japan. During that period, there are 165,774 cases of
smallpox with 28,979 deaths. (See 1955).
1885 General vaccination program against rabies begins in the United States.
1887 In England, Dr. Edgar M. Crookshank, professor of pathology and
bacteriology at Kings College, is asked by the British government to
investigate the cowpox outbreak in Wiltshire. The result of the
investigation was contained in two volumes of “The History and Pathology of
Vaccination”, in which he states that “the credit given to vaccination
belongs to sanitation”.
1888 Bacteriological Institute opens in Paris for experimentation with
animals and production of vaccines and sera. Other institutes open around
the world modeled after the Paris Institute.
1888 Bacteriological Institute in Odessa, Russia tries its hand at a
vaccine for anthrax. Over 4500 sheep are vaccinated; 3700 of them die from
1889 In England, a royal commission is appointed to inquire into certain
aspects of the vaccination question. The committee would be in session for
7 years and would issue 6 reports, with the final report in 1896. The
result of the final report was the Vaccination Act of 1898.
1895 Diptheria vaccination program begins. Over the period lasting until
1907, 63,249 cases of diptheria were treated with anti-toxin. Over 8,900
died, giving a fatality rate of 14%. Over the same period, 11,716 cases
were not treated with anti-toxin, of which 703 died, giving a fatality rate
1898 Vaccination Act of 1898 in England. Elections held for the “board of
guardians”, the administrators of the vaccination laws, and by 1898 over
600 boards in England were pledged not to enforce the law. The Act of 1898
contained the first “conscience clause”, although no claims of conscience
were ever approved by magistrates.
1900 Deaths from measles were 13 per 100,000.
1902 The Chicago Health Department develops its “vaccination creed”, which
states that “true vaccination repeated until it ‘no longer takes’ always
prevents smallpox. Nothing else does.” The policy is immediately taken up
by the US military.
1909 New York Press, January 26, 1909 publishes a report by W.B. Clark
which states, ” cancer was practically unknown until cowpox vaccination
began to be introduced. I have seen 200 cases of cancer, and I never saw a
case of cancer in an unvaccinated person.”
Scientific evidence begins to mount that where human lymph is employed in a
vaccine, syphilis, leprosy and TB soon follow. Where calf lymph is employed
in the creation of a vaccine, TB and cancer soon follow. (Cancer and
Vaccination by Esculapius).
1919 Diptheria vaccinations injure 60 and kill 10 in Texas.
1924 Diptheria vaccinations kill 25 in Bridgewater, Connecticut and 20 in
Concord, New Hampshire.
1925 In England, less than 50% of infants are vaccinated for smallpox. 6
deaths occur. (See 1872).
1925 General vaccine programs against tuberculosis began in the United States.
1927 Smallpox in England dwindles almost to the vanishing point. Fatality
of the unvaccinated cases is less than half of the vaccinated cases.
1933 Danish researcher Thorvald Madsen discovers the Pertussis vaccine’s
ability to kill infants without warning (SID). He reports that two babies
vaccinated immediately after birth died in a few minutes.
1933 American researchers report that children react to Pertussis vaccine
with fever, convulsions and collapse.
1933 Vaccination programs against Yellow Fever begin in the United States.
1933 Compulsory immunization instituted in Geneva.
1936 Pertussis vaccine introduced in the United States. Autism begins to
appear in children shortly thereafter. (Autism: A mental illness of
children characterised by inability to communicate or to relate to other
people and, often, mental subnormality).
1936 Diptheria vaccine injures 75 in France.
1938 Fifty-eight British physicians sign a mandate against compulsory
immunization in Guernseypoint to the virtual disappearance of Diptheria in
Sweden, a country without Diptheria vaccination.
1938 Compulsory immunization instituted in Hungary. Diptheria cases rise
35% by 1940.
1939 Compulsory vaccination in Germany raises diptheria cases to 150,000.
1940 Germany orders compulsory mass immunization for children. As a result,
by 1945, Germany’s Diptheria cases increase from 40,000 to 250,000.
1941 Louis Sauer of Evanston, Illinois, an avid supporter of mass
vaccination, reports that only 27% of a group of 89 babies developed
“protective antibodies” when vaccinated at three months of age or less.”
Sauer urges that Pertussis vaccination “begin no earlier than seven months”
because “most of these infants did not yet possess the power to develop
adequate immunity when they were injected so early in life”.
1943 American vaccine researcher Pearl Kendrick reports that adding a
metallic salt seemed to heighten the capacity of the Pertussis vaccine to
produce anti-bodies. (Metal salt is an “adjuvant” in this way). Some
metallic salts used are those of aluminum (alum). Pearl Kendrick is the
researcher that urged that Pertussis vaccine be combined with Diptheria
vaccine. Later the Tetanus vaccine was added, producing the nefarious DPT
1943 General vaccine program against influenza begins in the US.
1943 Infantile paralysis epidemic kills 1200 and cripples more in US.
1943 Diptheria cases in Nazi occupied France rise to 47,000 after Germans
force compulsory vaccination. In nearby Norway, which refused vaccinations,
there were 50 cases of Diptheria.
1947 Matthew Brody at the Brooklyn Hospital gives detailed descriptions of
two cases of brain damage leading to death in children receiving Pertussis
1947 The British Medical Research Council begins testing 50,000 children in
Britain with the Pertussis vaccine. All children tested are more than 14
months old (not newborns). Eight infants had convulsions within 72 hours of
the shot, 34 had convulsions within 28 days of the shot.
British doctors denied a connection between the vaccine and the
convulsions, declaring the tests a success and began administering it to
all British children. Despite the Fact that none of the tests were
conducted on children under 14 months old (newborns and babies), the United
States holds the tests in evidence that the vaccine is safe for newborns as
young as 6 weeks of age . The testing would continue until 1957.
1948 Randolph K. Byers and Frederick C. Moll of the Harvard Medical School
publish an article describing children who had suffered brain damage after
receiving Pertussis vaccine. The findings provided the first clear evidence
that the vaccine caused serious neurological complications in children.
1948 Study done in England where bone defects in three groups of school
boys were studied. Two groups were from districts where the water supply
was practically free of fluorine. The third group was from the town of
Launton, where the natural water supply contains 1ppm of fluorine (the same
as the level deemed “safe” by the U.S. Public Health Service). X-ray
examination revealed that 20 percent of the first two groups had mild
non-specific spinal irregularities. In the third group, the one consuming
1ppm fluoride in their water, 64% were found to have spinal defects, and
lesions were more severe.
1948 Randolph Byes and Frederick Moll of Harvard Medical School validate
that severe neurological disorders follow the administration of DPT
vaccine. The research was performed at Childrens Hospital in Boston and
published in Pediatrics magazine. Nothing was done by physicians to halt
the use of DPT vaccine.
1948 A study on Pertussis vaccine reaction is done by Randolph K. Byers and
Frederick C. Moll of the Harvard Medical School. They examine 15 children
who had reacted violently within 72 hours of a Pertussis vaccination. All
the children were normal before the shot. None had ever had a convulsion
before. One of the children became blind, deaf, spastic and helpless after
being given the Pertussis shot. Out of the 15 children, two died and nine
suffered from damage to their nervous system. Physicians were displeased by
1948 Polio cases in North Carolina number 2,498. See 1949.
1948 Louis Sauer makes an interesting observation at an AMA meeting where
Pertussis vaccination was discussed. Louis Sauer points out that “the
neurological damage caused by Pertussis vaccine is the same as the damage
caused by Pertussis (whooping cough). (Which is logical, because they use
the bacteria in the vaccine). According to Sauer, “a customary prophylactic
dose of Pertussis vaccine seems to illicit a chain of nervous system
reactions and in some cases irreversable pathological changes in the brain.
These findings resemble those encountered in cases of severe whooping cough
(Pertussis).” In other words, the vaccine is causing the disease condition.
1949 US Public Health Service Division of Biologics Standards establish a
national potency test for Pertussis vaccine, and modify it in 1953 to
establish potency limits. Despite this, the Pertussis vaccine that is
pronounced “safe” still causes minimal brain damage (MBD) in humans.
1952 Formulation of the polio vaccine begins. Tens of millions of doses of
polio vaccines produced from virus grown in monkey cells infected with
SV-40 (Simian Virus #40).
1953 Pertussis vaccinations in France, Chile, Austria, Holland and the
Scandinavian countries are positively correlated with cases of autism. US
1953 The Swedish conduct a study on the Pertussis vaccine. Anna L. Annell,
a Swedish researcher, writes a major work on Pertussis which indicates that
“pertussis vaccine may be associated with the most varying kinds of
cerebral complications which may be cortical, subcortical or peripheral.”
Encephalitis after vaccination is known to produce the same range of
disabilities and impairment.
Annel also wrote, “during the past few decades certain of the epidemic
children’s diseases, measles in particular, have shown an increased
tendency to attack the central nervous system. After the 1920’s a large
number of cases involving CNS damage were reported.
1954 Salk vaccine begins to be given to school children in Philadelphia.
1954 Parke-Davis pharmaceutical company combines the DPT shot with Polio
vaccine. The new combination of four vaccines is called Quadrigen. (See 1959).
1954 General vaccination programs against Polio begin in the United States.
1954 Polio rate caused by the vaccine accelerates ten-fold in Massachusetts.
1955 Georgia State public health officers meet in Atlanta (May 1955) to
discuss what was going wrong with the Salk vaccine program . A U.S. Public
Health scientist at the meeting told the group that “he was not permitted
to disclose what had happened because it would jeopardize the investment of
the pharmaceutical firms in the vaccine program.”
1955 Despite the skyrocketing cases of vaccine-induced polio, the AMA, NFIP
and USPHS claim a reduction of 40-50%.
1955 Idaho brings its Salk vaccination program to a halt on July 1, 1955.
Utah does the same on July 12, 1955.
1955 Boston Herald newspaper reports on April 18, 1955, features an article
entitled “Drug Companies Expecting Big Profit on Salk Vaccine”, which
stated. “A spokesman for Parke-Davis, which made 50% of the Salk vaccine,
said ‘now that it has been declared safe, we can get back the millions we
invested in the development of the Salk vaccine and make a profit out of
it. Our company will make over $10 million on Salk vaccine in 1955.'”
1955 AMA Conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Article by James C.
Spaulding who covered the conference was published in the AMA Journal, June
19, 1955, “A policy of secrecy and deception has been followed by the
National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and the US Public Health
Service in the polio vaccine programs. The nation’s physicians were
prevented from learning vital information about the trouble with Salk
vaccine. The US Public Health Service had an advisory group made up almost
entirely of scientists who were receiving money from the National
Foundation of Infantile Paralysis, which was exerting pressure to go ahead
with the program even after Salk vaccine was found to be dangerous.”.
Spaulding further said, “the Infantile Paralysis Foundation kept secret the
fact that live virus was detected in four out of six supposedly “finished
and safe” lots of vaccine.”
1955 Salk Polio Vaccine again used in the US.Cases of polio skyrocket again
in the United States.
1955 Reports that doctors on the staff of the National Institutes for
Health are avoiding vaccination of their children with the Salk vaccine.
After experimenting with 1,200 monkeys, they declared the Salk vaccine
worthless as a preventative and a danger to take.
1955 Vermont reports a 266% increase in polio since vaccinations began in
1955 Rhode Island reports 454% increase in polio since vaccinations in 1954.
1955 Massachusetts reports 642% increase in polio since vaccinations began
in 1954 with vaccination of 130,000 children. In response, the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis states that the increase in cases was
due to the fact that “no children were vaccinated there.” Massachusetts
bans the sale of Salk vaccine.”
1955 Dr. Graham W. Wilson, director of Britains Public Health Laboratory
Service, who knew about the NIH Salk vaccine trials, says “I do not see how
any vaccine prepared by Salk’s method can be guaranteed safe.”
1955 US Surgeon General Scheele admits in a closed session of the AMA that
“Salk polio vaccine is hard to make and no batch can be proven safe before
given to children”. Despite this fact, the public is told that the vaccine
is safe. The government announces that it has the intention to vaccinate 57
million people before August 1955.
1955 Surgeon General Scheele (who never practiced medicine a day in his
life) goes on public radio saying “I have complete confidence in the Salk
vaccine. I urge doctors to continue vaccinations.”
1956 Seventeen states in the United States reject their government-supplied
Salk polio vaccine.
1956 US government appropriates $53.6 million to “aid states in providing
free vaccine to people under 20 years of age”.
1956 Idaho health director Peterson states that polio only struck
vaccinated children in areas where there had been no cases of polio since
the preceeding autumn. In 90% of the cases, the paralysis occurred in the
arm in which the vaccine had been injected.
1956 American Public Health Service announces 168 cases of polio and 6
deaths among those vaccinated. Censorship is then imposed on the reporting
of reactions to Salk vaccine.
1956 Oral polio vaccine developed further by Sabin.
1957 Governor Knight of California asks the legislature for $3 million in
order to insure vaccination for all those under 40 years old with Salk
polio vaccine. The newspapers report that corporate profits from the Salk
vaccine will be in excess of $5 billion. (Feb 6, 1957). Governor Knight
notes there are 4 million Californians under 40 and signs the bill.
1957 Pertussis vaccination programs exist in all industrialized nations,
with the US leading the way. The vaccine is promoted as “risk free”.
1958 World literature now contains 107 cases of severe reaction to
Pertussis vaccine (93 of those cases were in the US). At the Fountain
Hospital in London, Dr. J.M. Berg analyzed the 107 cases and found that 31
of them showed signs of permanent brain damage. Berg calls attention to the
danger of mental retardation as an effect of the Pertussis vaccine and
emphasizes that “any suggestion of a neurological reaction to a Pertussis
vaccination should be an absolute contraindication to further innoculation.”
The United States medical establishment ignores and suppresses the data.
American physicians maintain that the damage caused is small compared to
“lack of ‘serious’ reactions in children vaccinated.” No data has ever been
found to justify a basis for this conclusion.
1958 Verdict of $147,000 rendered against Cutter Laboratories in Calfornia
for the crippling of two children with the Salk polio vaccine. Cutter Labs
was the only vaccine manufacturer not part of the Rockefeller Trust.
1959 National Institute of Health (NIH) approves licensing of Quadrigen
vaccine for children, containing Pertussis, Diptheria, Tetanus and Polio
vaccines. The new combination vaccine was found to be highly reactive and
was withdrawn from the market in 1968 after parents started filing lawsuits
against Parke- Davis for vaccine damaged children.
1959 Dr. Albert Sabin develops oral live virus polio vaccination.
1960 British Medical Journal publishes an article by Swedish vaccine
researcher Justus Strom, who stated that the neurological complications
from the disease Pertussis are less than that in the Pertussis vaccine.
Strom also pointed out that “whooping cough (Pertussis) had changed and had
become a milder disease, making it questionable whether universal
vaccination against it is justified.”
1961 A senior school medical officer in northern England, J.M.Hooper, finds
that parents are beginning to refuse to bring children for a Pertussis
booster shot, based on earlier violent reaction to the “vaccination.”
Children were suffering from collapse, vomiting, and uncontrollable
screaming. No one paid attention to these warnings.
1961 Sabin polio vaccine immunization campaign..
1963 Children vaccinated with killed measles vaccine between 1963 and 1967
develop Atypical Measles Syndrome (AMS). Studies suggest the children’s
response to the “wild” measles virus is “altered” and that the severity and
persistence of symptoms suggests encephalopathy (brain damage.) See 1967.
1967 General vaccination program for Mumps begins in the United States.
1969 Diptheria outbreak in Chicago. The Chicago Board of Heath reports that
37.5% of the Diptheria cases had been fully vaccinated or showed immunity.
1970 Due to the increasingly mild nature of whooping cough (Pertussis),
infant deaths cease from naturally acquired Pertussis in Sweden. Deaths
associated with vaccine continue. Sweden stops Pertussis vaccination in 1970.
1970 US Dept of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) reports ” as much as
26% of children receiving rubella (german measles) vaccination in national
testing programs developed arthralgia and arthritis . Many had to seek
medical attention and some were hospitalized.”
1970 A study by Pittman reveals Pertussis vaccine can induce hypoglycemia
due to increased production of insulin. (Ref: DPT shots). Study is
corroborated in 1978 by Hannick and Cohen and by Hennessen and Quast in
West Germany. Result: Pertussis and DPT vaccines can cause diabetes.
1974 Article is written in Britain by Kulenkampff, Schwartzman and Wilson
who retrospectively analyze 36 cases of neurological illness at the
Hospital for Sick Children in London from 1961 to 1972. All the cases were
thought to be attributable to DPT shots.Out of 36 cases, 4 recovered
completely, 2 died, and 30 were left mentally retarded or in seizure
1974 British researcher George Disk estimates that there are 80 cases of
severe neurological complications from Pertussis vaccine annually. Over 33%
of these children died and another 33% were left with brain damage. Dick
maintains he is not convinced that the community benefit from the vaccine
outweighs the damage.
1975 Japan stops using Pertussis vaccine following publicity about
1976 According to a letter from the British Association for Parents of
Vaccine Damaged Children, published in the British Medical Journal of
February 1976, “two years ago we started to collect details from parents of
serious reactions suffered by their children to immunizations of all kinds.
In 65% of the cases referred to us, reactions followed “triple”
vaccinations. The children in this group total 182 to date. All are
severely brain damaged, some are paralyzed, and 5 have died during the past
18 months. Approximately 60% of reactions (major convulsions, collapse,
screaming) happened within 3 days and all within 12 days.
1976 Dr. Jonas Salk, creator of the polio vaccine, says that analysis
indicates that the live virus vaccine in use since the 1960’s is the
principle, if not sole cause of all polio cases since 1961.
1976 More than 500 people receiving flu vaccinations become paralyzed with
1977 (Mar) Jonas and Darrell Salk warn live virus vaccines produce same
1981 Formaldehyde is a common component of vaccines. At the headquarters of
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the director of
the OSHA office of carcinogenic identification, Dr. Peter Infante, pointed
out that a Current Intelligence Bulletin (CIB) on formaldehyde was “an
important document assessingformaldehyde’s cancer causing potential”. The
top bureaucracy at OSHA were embarrassed at the release of the truth, and
tried to dismiss Infante. On July 27th, Infante writes Dr. John Higginson,
director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC),
disagreeing with the IARC decision to conceal the carcinogenic nature of
1981 Britain conducts the National Childhood Encephalopathy Study, and
finds that there exists a significant correlation between serious
neurological illness and Pertussis vaccination occurring within 7 days of
the shot. In the US, the FDA limits statistical data to 48 hours in order
to conceal damaging data and eliminate data on deaths and damage occurring
after that period of time.
1981 New England Journal of Medicine (11/26/81) publishes a study showing
that tetanus vaccines cause T-cell ratios to drop below normal, with the
greatest decrease after two weeks. The altered ratios were found to be
similar to those found in AIDS victims.
1982 34th Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology releases a study
which is published in Neurology magazine indicating thatout of 103 infants
who die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), 66% had been vaccinated
with DPT prior to death. Of these, 6.5% died within 12 hours of
vaccination, 13% within 24 hours, 26% within 3 days, 37% died within 1
week, 61% died within 2 weeks and 70% had died within 3 weeks.
It was also found that SIDS frequencies have a bimodal peak occurrence at 2
and 4 months of age – the same ages when initial doses of DPT are
administered to infants. Study done at the University School of Medicine at
Reno, Nevada. Dr. William Torch.
(Note: Later, Japan made a law that children under 2 years old were not to
be vaccinated. The result was that Japan no longer has SIDS).
1983 Bellman, Ross and Miller publish a study of 269 cases of infantile
spasms which returns to the establishment position that “DPT vaccines do
not cause infantile spasms, but may trigger their onset in those children
in whom the disorder is ‘destined to develop'”.
1984 The British Epidemiological Research Laboratory publishes a study
relative to Pertussis vaccinations, saying ” Since the decline in Pertussis
immunization, hospital admissions and death rates from whooping cough have
1985 The Assistant Secretary of Health, Edward Brandt, Jr.,M.D, testifies
before a Senate Committee, “every year 35,000 children suffer neurological
complications because of DPT vaccine.” (May 3,
1985 Book about DPT vaccinations “DPT: A Shot in the Dark” is published,
revealing aspects of collusion between government agencies, the medical
establishment and the pharmaceutical industry.
1986 In Kansas, 1300 cases of Pertussis reported. Over 1100 had been
1988 Two scientific studies find that new rubella vaccine introduced in
1979 was found to be the cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Epstein-Barr
virus), an immune disorder first reported in 1982.
1988 Robert S. Mendelsohn M.D, publishes material indicating that Dr. John
Seal of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease believes
that “any and all flu vaccines are capable of causing Guillain-Barre.”
1988 New “conjugated” Hib vaccine approved for use in children at least 18
months old in the United States. Hib = Hemophilus Influenza Type B.
1988 Research indicates that 25% of those vaccinated against rubella show
no evidence of immunity within five years. In Wyoming, 73% of rubella cases
occur in vaccinated children.
1988 Announced in Washington Post that all polio since 1979 caused by vaccine
1990 The US Public Health Service Immunization Practices Advisory Committee
(ACIP) and the American Academy of Pediatrics considers high-pitched
screaming after a Pertussis (DPT) vaccination an absolute contraindication
to further Pertussis vaccine.
1990 Pediatric neurologist Dr. John H. Menkes, professor emeritus at UCLA,
reports on 46 children experiencing neurological adverse reaction within 72
hours of a DPT shot. Over 87% of the children reacted with a seizure, 2
children died and most surviving children became retarded, with 72% having
uncontrollable seizure disorders.
1991 Operation Desert Storm. American troops are given experimental
vaccines against biological agents. Within months thousands of troops
sicken with communicable cancer causing virus. Disease deemed “Gulf War
Syndrome”. Government denies responsibility. Over 8,000 troops were
vaccinated with Botulism, over 150,000 troops were given anthrax vaccine,
and all 500,000 troops were given Pyristigimine, an experimental nerve
agent. All drugs were experimental.
1991 The US Public Health Service Advisory Commitee on Immunization
Practices (ACIP) drafts new guidelines which eliminate most
contraindications to Pertussis vaccine. Essentially, this results in a
denial or coverup of most reactions on the grounds that “there is no proof
the vaccine causes brain damage.”
They base their position on several studies financed by vaccine
manufacturers conducted in the late 1980’s by vaccine policymakers such as
Dr. James Cherry and Dr. Edward Mortimer. These men sit on the ACIP
Committee and are also paid consultants to US Pertussis vaccine
manufacturers, resulting in biased and flawed studies in order to prove “no
cause and effect” between the Pertussis vaccine and permanent brain damage.
US vaccine policymakers are the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
All this, despite decades of experience indicating the opposite conclusion.
(Note: This policy constitutes criminal neglect, racketeering and conspiracy).
1991 The “conjugated” Hib vaccine introduced in 1988 is extended for use in
infants as young as two months. It becomes mandated in 44 states in the US.
1991 The CDC begins the process of mandating Hepatitis B vaccinations for
all infants in the United States. Many infants receive multiple doses from
1991 Second Immunization Conference in Canberra, Australia. Dr. Viera
Scheibnerova reports that “vaccination is the single most prevalent and
most preventable cause of infant deaths”
1991 The US Public Health Service recommends a child receive the first DPT
shot at two months of age, with subsequent shots given at 4,6, and 18
months, and between the ages of 4 and 6. At the same time, Europe, Sweden
and several other countries routinely “wait” until after 6 months of age
“because of the improved antibody response in babies whose immune systems
are more developed.”
1992 From 1988 to 1992, over $249 million has already been awarded due to
hundreds of deaths and injuries caused by mandated vaccines. Thousands of
cases are still pending. The permanent injuries from vaccines include, but
are not limited to, learning disabilities, seizure disorders, mental
retardation, and paralysis. Many of the awards for pertussis vaccine deaths
were initially (and wrongfully) misclassified as Sudden Death Syndrome (SIDS).
1993 More than 25 percent of all measles cases are occurring in babies
under a year old. CDC attributes this to growing number of mothers
vaccinated between 1960 and 1980. When natural immunity is denied by vaccination, measles immunity cannot be passed on to babies.
1993 Epidemic of Pertussis in Massachusetts, 218 students, 96% of whom were
vaccinated against Pertussis (whooping cough).
