Re: Re: [CHAT now vaccines was now IOWA-

The first inoculations for polio were the Salk killed virus and I got them as shots in grade school in the 50s. The later Sabin attenuated virus was given on sugar cubes. My girls, born in 1964 and 1965, both had them instilled directly into their mouths as infants before they could handle sugar cubes.

We don't remember anyone having diphtheria because they began giving DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus) shots in the 40s, I believe. Since then, more inoculations have been added to the program. I had measles, mumps, German measles and chicken pox as a kid, but now kids are immunized against them, too.

My first polio vaccine was scratched into the skin, as was the smallpox. That was in the '50s. I was really happy when the next polio vaccine was on the sugar cube. Now smallpox is so rare, the vaccine is riskier than the chance of exposure to the disease. Whooping cough & diptheria are the ones I don't remember anyone actually having.
