Why I Support Vaccination

May 7, 2014

Iron Lungs
Those are iron lungs. Inside each one is an unvaccinated child, in their case because they were unlucky enough to be born before vaccines. This horrific sight was eliminated from the world, but it could return.

    You do realise that photo comes from a well known tragedy called “The Cutter incident” and 100% of the people in iron lungs in the photo were vaccinated against Polio. The mistake produced 120,000 doses of polio vaccine that contained live polio virus. Of children who received the vaccine, 40,000 developed abortive poliomyelitis (a form of the disease that does not involve the central nervous system), 56 developed paralytic poliomyelitis and of these, five children died from polio. The exposures led to an epidemic of polio in the families and communities of the affected children, resulting in a further 113 people paralysed and 5 deaths. I am neither pro or anti-vaxx but its poor reasoning to use that photo as your evidence to support vaccination.
