Here's a vaccination schedule for 1974 from my mom's Better Homes & Gardens Family Medical Guide:

2 months: DTP, TOPV (trivalent oral polio virus)
4 months: DTP, TOPV
6 months: DTP, TOPV
1 year: Measles, TB test
1-12 years: Rubella, Mumps
1 1/2 years: DTP, TOPV
4-6 years: DTP, TOPV

Wow, it sounds like so much! I can't believe even MORE have been added since then and they keep adding more.

Also '74... By the time we were school age there must have been more. I clearly remember getting boosters for K and getting sick from them. Measles and Rubella, to be exact.

I was 74 and only remember egtting one booster shot. well hey lets see . . I have my record handy (I lose my drivers liscence regularly and for some reason this is valid ID, because you just an't fake a shot record . . . . ) well this is intresting . . . .

I was born 10/7/74

11/21/74 DPT, OPV
6/19/75 DPT, OPV
3/31/76 DPT, OPV
4/7/76 TINE (??)
6/16/76 MMR
8/29/77 Tb/Mono-vacc (??), DPT, OPV
8/14/8- DPT, OPV
4/25/90 measles
8/20/90 TD (??)


I do not know what the TINE was. must go find out. i also think the schedule is intresting. i went quite a while between rounds. My parents split right after round one, round two was after we moved and got settled and round 3 was after they got back together. funny, looking at the Dr. names (which ones are military) and the dates of a vaccine probably is the first time I have gotten a really accurate look at my parents on again off again relationship in time and space.

Tine test is another type of TB test.

I'm pretty sure TINE is the tb test they did at the time. It was a little poker that poked 9 little spots in your arm. Now, they use a syringe to get the stuff under the skin.

I think the TD is the DPT without the P.

Yep that's what I had - only I was in the group that got the MMR too early (prior to a year) and had to get a booster in high school.


I think TD might just be tetanus.

In those days, in this country, only 2 doses of DPT were considered "necessary" and here you were all being shot up with 5.

I'm not sure what the recommendation is, but DD only gets DT because we didn't want her to have the P part due to some family history of reactions. I also think that adult boosters are DT only.

Huh, I didnt know I had gotton a lot of those, I'm a '75 baby. Although, my mom says that I never got any shot after about 3 or so. So I did'nt get boosters, I went to a private school up until 7th grade, and at that point I remember getting that tine thingy (I watched those little bumps for any sign of somthing bad!!)

Does anyone have any idea how much mercury we got in those shot, in comparison to all the shots given now??

Theres a math problem for someone......I hate math, so I dont even want to give it a shot!!

This is interesting to me, because I also was born in '74. I know we didn't go by their schedule, though. My mom said that she had the doctors give our vaccines in half doses, because we reacted badly to them. Too bad she didn't know what we know now :. When I told her recently how many more vaccines a child had to have now, versus when my sisters and I were little, she couldn't believe it.

I am a few years younger than this, not sure how much it changed between '74 and '78 but as for the OPV it was givin many years after that.. I am just begining my research on all this vacine stuff and am still learning, but when my first was little I knew nothing about it other than that I hated them, my mom hated them, I delayed all vac, although I didnt know anyone in the world did that besides me, and he also had OPV.

10/15/69
10/23/69
10/30/70

I don't know when it started, but I got TD in the early 70's as a booster. (That was after 4 original doses of dtp.)

As for the oral polio timing, I had the injection in '64 and then the oral booster '67. I'm pretty sure the oral polio was used until the beginning of the 90's.

I wonder, at what point in history would we find an increase in vax-related health issues? Was it a point in time when a particular vax was introduced, or was it when the schedule called for a certain # of vaxes within a certain timeframe? (I'm a bit older than you 1974 folks, so my vaxes were REALLY spread out, simply because they weren't all available when I was a baby and we got them as they were introduced, and except for the dpt, they were all singular vaxes.)

I remember a torts case from the 1910-1920's about an injury from (I think) smallpox innoculation. The injured woman lost the case because the court deemd that she had had informed consent, but that she was injured was not disputed, although the details were not discussed.

My mother had an early polio vaccine in the late 50's that she had a bad reaction to. I don't know all the details, but I do recall at various times her and her doctors attributing sciatica and other hip problems culminating in a hip replacement at the age of 47 to her polio vaccine reaction.

Oh, no doubt, damage can be done with a single vax...maybe I'm not expressing myself well--I'll try again:

In looking at the 1974 list in the OP, I'm thinking to myself, "I had all those same vaxes." But, since I was born earlier, many of them were not available when I was a baby, so I got them as they came out instead, which made it a "delayed" schedule. When measles was introduced, for example, it may have been recommended for 18 month olds, but I was 5 at the time, so I got it then.

Looking at the rest, as an infant, I had only dpt and smallpox.

In my second year, I had polio.

Then nothing more until I was five.
At 5, I had measles and polio.

At 6 a dpt

At 7, Rubella

At 8, Mumps

At 9 a dt booster.

Of course, it wasn't just ME--there's a whole generation there that had vaxes much later than the recommended time. It would be interesting to be able to study that group. (Unfortunately, there are all kinds of little variables that get in the way, but still...)

my husband was born in 74 (I was born in 81 and got no shots so it doesn't matter what i could of gotten)

My husband has also made his way over to iraq last year so he got a smallpox vacciation also, and god knows what else. *rolls eyes*

interesting to know what they were putting in kids then... to me it seems like so little compared to what they have now...

JUN 1971 - TRIVALENT POLIO

AUG 1971- DPT
AUG 1971 - TRIVALENT POLIO

SEPT 1971 - DPT
SEPT 1971 - TRIVALENT POLIO

AUG 1971 - TINE TEST NEG

OCT 1971 - MEASLES - HAD DISEASE NOTED
OCT 1971 - GERMAN MEASLES
OCT 1971 - MUMPS

APR 1972 - TINE TEST NEG
APR 1972 - TYPHOID
APR 1972 - SMALL POX

In 1999 when having my daughter, they did a blood test and said I needed the MMR even though I had both the measles and the vaccinations. I declined. I didn't even realize I had been vaccinated for small pox until I saw my shot record today.

Typhoid - now there is a vaccine you don't see every day.

where did you live? I wonder if where we lived influances what vacines we got.

I started in williams burge VA, round two was in Mississippi, round three in Alabama and round 4 in NC and teh rest in TX. Also the early ones were all Navy Dr.s.

I found my immunization record, twas born in '74.

Polio
~ 1-27-75
~ 3-24-75
~ 7-23-79
~ 8-25-80

D.T.P.
~ 11-25-74
~ 1-27-75
~ 3-24-75
~ 9-27-76
~ 7-23-79

I had measles and rubella together 10-28-75


I had a MMR booster 7-15-91


The only thing left blank on my record is booster #5 for Polio, Mumps and HIB.


My mom sure spent a lot of time taking me to the health dept. But i guess I faired better than kids now days as I 'only' got 11 shots.

Funny side note is I wore wooden clogs once so while the nurse was sticking my bum with a needle I could get her in the head with a clog Mom wasnt to happy :LOL

I was born in 1975 overseas in Panama. DOB 3/25/75
DPT/ OPV 5/28/75
DTP/ OPV 7/24/75
DTP/ OPV 10/29/75
TYPHOID 12/15/75
MMR 3/29/76 at age 1
MMR 1/17/77 at age 2
MMR 2/18/79 at age 4
DPT/ OPV 2/18/77
DT/ OPV 8/26/87 -- I remember this office visit
TD 7/15/86 -- I remember this office visit, which is why I didn't want to go back again
TINE test 8/13/81, 8/29/78, 3/26/76, 7/15/86

My records were transcibed in 1996 by a military nurse. She left off from the original record Yellow Fever and Black Plague. She started to write Small Pox on there and then scratched it off. My mother knew small pox was going off the schedule and didn't want me to have it. I had a note from our doctor in the international yellow immunization record. Too bad she wasn't smart enough to realize I only needed 2 MMR or that I had TD the year after, I had a DT which are the same thing.

I swear I will end up with MS. I already have allegies which I did not have as a child, these are adult on set. Allergies being an autoimmune disorder and my son has Celiac Disease which is also autoimmune related -- I feel it in my bones. Maybe it's a terrible thing to even think b/c there is such a thing as mind over body...

You should read"the Virus and the VAccine" Its about the polio vaccine and SV-40. They are finding SV-40 cancers for years now and are finding in children who were RECENTLy vaxed with Polio. A 2-yr old died from a brain cancer and it was found to be SV-40 type of cancer

Of course, this ONE of many side effects of vaccines. I always thought MAYBE to do Poli vaccine since Stephie Cave's book said it was the vaccine that had the LEAST side effects. After reading this book, I realized its definitely NO!!!

No vaccine for ds!!!

Back to topic. I was born in 1966 and got the DTP, OPV @ 3, 6, & 9 months. I got the rubella @ 12 months and booster @ school age. I also got the mealses somewhere there.

When I saw how many vacs ds would get in 2003, I was :
