I found this to be pretty interesting as I didn't realize that the vaccine court was specifically created due to a large number of suits and growing hysteria from reactions and deaths after pertussis vaccination.

There is also information in this on how the vaccine court evolved to make it more difficult for the injured to win.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/national/longterm/sunmag/shots/shot1.htm

A sad, telling paragraph (written in 1998):

"More than 1,100 children have been compensated since the program was established. And yet, the program probably raised expectations it could not meet. Because thousands of petitions initially poured into the claims court, the promise of speedy resolution failed. Some of the babies whose parents filed claims for DPT shots are of college age now, and have yet to get their day in court. Most controversially, not long ago HHS changed the rules under which it defends itself -- the government having assumed liability from vaccine manufacturers for claims stemming from DPT shots. And so, every week the vaccine program gets petitions from the families of children who died after a DPT shot, or were left physically or mentally damaged. But it rejects most of them. The children who come before Millman and her colleagues are damaged, all right, but not necessarily by DPT. Not under the new rules she must work with, anyway."

Yes. I remember when they changed the rules. A bunch of things that had been table injuries were no longer table injuries.

The whole thing with the vaccine court has been a farce from beginning to end. People were promised one system and got another deal altogether.

I continue to think that Barbara Loe Fisher was a total sucker for pushing for the Vaccine Court system.

Strange considering that it in this article in the 70s, it was admitted by the medical community that brain damage could occur:

To be perfectly honest, there are studies and publications in professional journals that state that the wP vaccine was neurologically toxic in the 1940s.

Yet, that vaccine continued to be recommended and used for another fifty years to 1996, when it was replaced by the aP vaccine. And you all ready know how that has worked.

The article you cite in post 1 is from 1998; since the aP replaced the wP two years before, it is probably a push for the new and improved aP vaccine.

I realize when it is from and that the pertussis vaccine was changed- it is still a pretty interesting article about the way the court works.

It was suspected back in 2004 that the vaccine was altering the ability to ever respond naturally with durable immunity too. It sure looks like what Hilary B spells out here is exactly what's happening

Original antigenic sin and linked epitope suppression are concepts well worth acquainting yourself with when making vaccine decisions.

Which of the other numerous vaccines are affecting our natural ability to respond?

the flu vaccine has been implicated in the same thing...too many years in a row of getting flu shots, renders them less effective
