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, Massachusetts.
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 reintroduce it.
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.

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.

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 die.
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 Vaccination".
1884 In England, more that 1700 children vaccinated for smallpox die of syphillis.
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.

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 of 6%.
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.

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 Vaccine.
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 shots.
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 these results.
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 ignores data.
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 1954.
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 conditions.
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 vaccine-related deaths.
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 toimmunizations 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 Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
1977 (Mar) Jonas and Darrell Salk warn live virus vaccines produce same disease.
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 the substance.
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 fallen unexpectedly."
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 vaccinated.
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.

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.
