vaccines in 1980

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if there was a place where you could find out what vax were done in the past. I was born in 1980 and I am curious as to what vax I received. I know I was fully vaxed and I know I got mmr.
i am not vaxing my dd but everytime I hear of someone getting meningitis or pertussis I start to doubt myself. I know there are some vax today that couldn't have been around back then and I'm fine. I just need some reassurance because everytime another person touches my dd I get nervous thinking she is going to catch something.

If you were fully vaxed in the early 80's, then you received:

Oral polio
DTP
MMR

You may have gotten HIb at two years of age. The infant conjugate version didn't come out until a few years later.

Prepare to be quite shocked!!


This is the schedule from 1983, which is probably quite similar to the mid 70's, I'm not sure when they added the MMR to the schedule. And a 2nd dose was added in a later schedule.

By 1989, a new vaccine, Hib was added, and it was only one dose at 18 months.

http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/...edule1989s.jpg
By 1994,

http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/...edule1994s.jpg

they added more doses of Hib, one more dose of MMR, and a new vax consisting of 3 doses, Heb B.

Prior to 1995, the childhood schedule was published periodically, as part of the ACIP's General Recommendations.

By 1996, varicella (chickenpox) was added to the schedule,

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00039897.htm

1999 brought another new vaccine to the schedule, and this was year I realized I knew nothing about the vaccines I had allowed to be injected into my children beginning in 1984.

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00056261.htm

Rotashield vaccine was added this year, but then pulled due to several infants died and far more needed surgery to reconstruct their bowels because of this vaccine that appears to have been approved by people with severe conflicts of interest (one of the panel members held a patent to a rotavirus vaccine that was in production by another company. The approval of this vaccine would pave the way to $$$$$$ for his company's vax.)

3 doses of this vaccine were added the schedule in 1999.

By 2000, we see the rotavirus vax gone but Hep A added in selected areas.

No doubt this was only a temp measure until the drug company could lobby Hep A across the country, making it required for ALL children.

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm4902a4.htm

By 2001, 4 doses of ANOTHER new vaccine was added to the schedule,

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5001a3.htm
Prevnar.

For 2001, ACIP, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Academy of Pediatrics have added pneumococcal conjugate vaccine to the schedule (2) and have extended the recommendation for the use of hepatitis A vaccine to include persons through age 18 years in selected geographic areas and in certain high-risk groups (3). Detailed recommendations for using vaccines are available from the manufacturers' package inserts, ACIP statements on specific vaccines, and the 2000 Red Book (5). ACIP statements for each recommended childhood vaccine can be viewed, downloaded, and printed from CDC's National Immunization Program World-Wide Web site,

http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/ACIP-list.htm.

By 2002, they sneak in influenza (flu vax) for hi risk children. Another temp move like the Hep A vax.

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5102a4.htm

By 2003, they have widened the recommendations for the flu vax, now being added to the group, all infants 6-23 months. Watch for this recommendation to widen even more as time goes on....

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwr...nizationa1.htm

By 2005, they got influenza recommended for all

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwr...nizationa1.htm

So by 2006, as we close out the year,

the drug companies were successful in getting Hep A and Influenza vaccines recommended for all.

Quite a difference from the 1983 schedule!

I have my vaccine card from 1972--so, if you need early 80s, it sounds like it was the same. (If you need late, I can't help you!)

1972: DTP (3 months, 4 months, and 5 months), OPV, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR booster in 1989), TB test, and DT (for boosters). It's possible that OPV switched over to IPV at some point.

Does that work for you?

(Here is the list of former schedules.)

Smallpox. It is supposed to leave a scar. My mother had one.

I remember getting that one too, but I was older. I was born in 81 and I was at least 9 when I got that, because my mom delayed all our vax's till my youngest sister was 5. I don't have a scar though.

Oh, you are right, it was a TB test. The smallpox thingie also had prongs. Silly me!
post #17 of 27
When did they stop giving the smallpox vax? Early 70's?

I still have the scar on the back of my upper arm...
post #18 of 27
