Does anyone have one? I'm trying to remember all the vax I got as a kid, but I can't find my vaccine hx in my baby book. I am delaying my DD's vax, and may not ever get any for her....I'm still new to the research on it, but I'd love to know the vax that were recommended in the early 1980's if anyone would share. Thanks!!

If you do a Goggle Image search, you can find the ad that ran in USA Today - 2 needles, one with the shorter list of vaxes required in the 80's (I think?) , and the other a huge list of vaxes required today.

I also think the nvic has that info. It seems i remember reading a long time ago,that they state the history-including dates/times/years,etc...of the vaxes.

MMR, DTP, polio. HIB was required for some daycare/headstart programs.

At least that is what my vaccination card says. I was born in 1980.

Nope- Hib was not first licensed until 1985. And not reformulated for use unde 18mo until 1987.

Just wanted to note that it's a good idea to consider what you got (and didn't) as a kid if you were vaccinated.
My vaccinations were just a few as the typical schedule in the 70's were. I was just chatting to my mom about this the other day and how crazy the schedule is now. Things haven't changed much in terms of illnesses but the profits for drug/vaccination companies have.

I bow to your superior knowledge. I was just going off my vax record. I did not receive Hib, it was just listed on my record as an option for headstart/daycare. I suppose the card is one I got in 1989 when we moved to a new state.

I don't have my card, but I'm pretty sure I got

DTP
Polio (one dose at least oral! I remember the orange taste!)
MMR

My mom says she probably wouldn't have done them if the list looks like it does now...she said it was just a few then.

And you know what...I probably wouldn't have thought much about it then, either. With my current thought processes about such things I would still not vax, of course, but if I were my mom then, 3 shots wouldn't have prompted me to feel that it was excessive.

ditto for '77 - i was having a conversation about vaxxing with my family a few years ago, and my grandmother was initially all weirded out with me delaying/avoiding for the kids - until she found out the sheer number of diseases they're vaxxing for these days. for a woman who saw her kids get more serious diseases, she was shocked that they vaccinate for chicken pox.

Reading through the following link makes me physically ill as I see the number of recommended vaccines grow bigger and bigger ...

http://pediatrics.about.com/gi/dynam...m%23Book%25203

I don't think the schedule changed much from the mid 70's to the early 80's, basically dpt, polio and MMR. The next change was the HIB which appeared on the 1989 schedule.

My children born in the early 80's got about 23 doses of vaccines by the time they started school, my child born in the mid 90's got about 21 doses by the age of 18 months!!

I shudder to think what today's children are subjected to by the time they start school, I think it's over 50 now!!

I got one dose of this despite it being contraindicated (I was 5 and a half). :

I am from the former eastern block and still have my complete Vax booklet, I was born 1980- and we even got TB, at least that's what it says in my booklet. TB??? That's just nuts. And I even recall SEVERAL oral doses of polio, it was a mass production in school without parents being present and I think I got more than I was supposed to get, because I also have several injected Polio vaxes documented.

All in all, I just shudder looking at my vax card. But coming to the US was not much better, the "civil surgeon" bullied me into receiving TDP and Hep A AND Hep B in one day. God awful.

I'm pretty sure the IPV's been around for a LONG time, it just wasn't used - you had to special request it kind of deal. Could be wrong though. I'm 24, for the record

Hmm, I'm not so sure. I think when they decided to switch to the IPV it was a big deal and such...

gave me something new to go research though!

ahHA! found it. The IPV was licensed in 1990 (both created in the 50s, but I gather IPV wasn't an option for awhile there until 1990 brought it back)

http://www.immunizationinfo.org/vacc...tail.cfv?id=10

So since I was in high school by then it wasn't a choice. You're a touch younger

My schedule lists it as OPV/IPV (born in 81). interesting. I'm assuming I still got the oral since it was in '82, '82, '83, '86.

Interesting.

This site says the new IPV came out in 88

maybe they just copied my old vaccine info onto a newer sheet or something. In fact i'm thinking they did because there are no signatures on there from my mom until '94. weird. that would never fly today, huh?

My records say I got the IPV in 86 and 88, respectively... mom claims my brother (born 5/82) got the IPV too and NOT the OPV... (not that I've personally seen his records... so who knows!!

ETA: wikipedia says the CURRENT IPV was licesned in 87, but there was also an IPV used 'extensivly' till (through?) the 60s... so it could have still been around, just mostly not used??

Either way, looking at my records I definetly didn't get as many doses as 'recommended' Only 2 of polio and like 3 DT total, and I think only one MMR!!

The initial schedule, introduced in 1960, was of three doses of plain (i.e. no aluminium adjuvant) diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTP) vaccine administered at 3, 4, and 5 months of age. When vaccine with aluminium hydroxide adjuvant became available in 1971, the 4-month dose was omitted as it was felt that the two doses of adjuvant vaccine would provide similar protection to three doses of plain vaccine and exhibit fewer adverse effects.1

Wow, I had very little vaxing in NZ. I was born in 72.
