Did they have them back then? ;)
I had my vaccines, and then after I joined the military, many, many more. My yellow card shot record is almost full.
They don't seem to have hurt me.
YIKES!! Made me a little nervous.
When we went on to Egypt and Kenya for a visit: MORE shots. Lord have mercy.
I decided that if a child survives growing up in the middle east or Africa and is in relatively good health...nothing short of a SILVER BULLET would kill him.

Aren’t you funny - although it was a long time ago!! Probably has some maybe in town. But I grew up in Kansas farmland. I don’t remember ever going to the doctor until I was a teenager and only then because I got into some poison ivy and ended up with a very bad infection on my legs. I do remember the polio outbreak and going with my mom to see one of our church members who was in an iron lung. Pretty scary. We just didn’t have any strangers where we lived, nobody ever got really sick and if anyone was ill, we pretty much used old home remedies. Just a different time of life.
I had polio vaccine and a few others. back in the early '50s it was the norm for mothers to gather their kids at a home where a kid had measles/chickenpox/mumps to get it over with.
I'm not aware of any damage that later vaccines may have wrought, but i think that there are many cases where they have caused harm and possibly diluted the natural immune system. Some of us may have small aches/pains/bouts of "colds" etc., that we may not have if not for vaccines and there is no way to tell.
