THE FORGOTTEN HISTORY OF VACCINES

When anyone questions the safety and efficacy of vaccines, someone ALWAYS says “the polio vaccine saved lives.”

But…it didn’t.

And there is a very swarmy and nasty history surrounding the polio vaccine.

I can forgive folks for buying into the smallpox vaccine.  Though that’s a swarmy history as well as it dates to the 1700s and involves many types of vaccines, many of which were killers.  But the polio vaccine comes in 1954, and the developers KNEW THERE WERE PROBLEMS.  They went ahead anyway.

Bottom line, I’m realizing, is that no one understands why a killer disease comes into being and then wanes.  And no one knows how our immune systems work.  We do know that each individual’s immune system is VERY DIFFERENT from all others–so a one-size-fits-all vaccines is a huge problem for way too many people–even if you’re assuming vaccines are safe and work–which is also not true.

This is a longer article with tons of good information from a credentialed, reputable source.  At least scroll down to the polio section if you do nothing else.

  1. That was interesting! I had both vaccines, injected in middle school and oral in high school. I was happy because a never-ending nightmare of mine was having to live in an iron lung. If I’d been a parent with that information at the time (and who had it in the public – no one!), I don’t know what I would have done!
