Learning From History: Infected Polio Vaccine

As the world continues to experience draconian lockdown measures in hopes of ‘flattening the curve’, millions are now crying out for a vaccine ‘solution’ to end the ongoing COVID-19 saga.

Many remain unaware of the controversial history of vaccine responses to pandemic outbreaks, including documented archives revealing millions of cancer-causing polio doses were knowingly released to Australians.

Polio has been described as “among the most frightening diseases to affect Australians during the 20th century” as it reached epidemic proportions at times between 1930-1970.

Outbreaks of polio usually occurred in summer, terrifying communities and causing public hysteria. Swimming pools, theatres and cinemas were closed, and people avoided large gatherings.

At the time, the world cried out for a cure to end the ongoing ‘havoc’ on society. It wasn’t until the 1950s and 1960s that Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin separately developed ‘effective’ vaccines:

  • Salk’s vaccine, which used a killed virus via injection, was easier and quicker to produce but required regular booster shots.
  • Sabin’s attenuated (weakened but still live) oral vaccine did not require booster shots but, if not manufactured properly, ran the risk of reverting to its virulent state and infecting the person with the full-blown disease.

In 1960, it was discovered that rhesus monkey kidney cells used to prepare poliovirus vaccines were determined to be infected with the Simian Virus-40 (SV40). That’s right, infected vaccines.

SV40 was found to cause tumors in rodents and certain forms of cancer in humans, with investigators providing evidence that SV40 is present in human ependymomas, choroid plexus tumors, bone tumors and mesotheliomas. 

More than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine from 1955 to 1963 when a proportion of vaccine was contaminated with SV40; it has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of vaccine.

Research suggests there may be an increased incidence of certain cancers among the 98 million persons exposed to contaminated polio vaccine in the U.S.

It was later discovered that SV40 was found to be present in all stocks of the injected form of the polio vaccine in use during this timeframe — including those shipped to Australia.


Dr Percival Bazeley of the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories (CSL) was sent to work with Salk in 1952 and returned to Melbourne in 1955 to begin manufacturing the dead-virus vaccine. 

The first Salk vaccines were distributed across Australia in June 1956 and 25 million doses of the vaccine were produced by CSL under Dr Bazeley’s directorship.

Interestingly, only 83 per cent of New South Wales children were vaccinated, as well only 72 per cent of children in Victoria. Authorities say due to the lack of ‘herd immunity’, this caused a second outbreak in 1961.

During this time, a federal government agency knowingly released polio vaccine contaminated with the monkey virus to the Australian public.

The virus contaminated at least four batches of vaccine totaling almost three million doses in Australia between 1956 and 1962.

An investigation revealed documents from the CSL found executives released one batch of about 700,000 doses of contaminated vaccine in 1962 with the understanding that “vaccines issued in the past were probably similarly contaminated“.

The department knew from its own internal research that the monkey virus was a potential cause of cancer in humans. The research, which was never made public, was carried out in August 1962, while contaminated batches of vaccine were still being released.

The group produced more than 18 million doses of Salk polio vaccine during the ‘epidemic’, enough to vaccinate six million Australians, during that period.

Nine out of every 10 Australian children aged between 5 and 14 are estimated to have been injected with Salk vaccine by 1965, when it was replaced with Sabin oral vaccine. Polio vaccinations were given to children as young as three months.

CSL would go on to become an influential player in Australia biomedicine, including in collaboration on development of the world’s first human papillomavirus vaccine between 1995-2005, Gardasil, and as one of the first groups to develop a vaccine for Swine Flu in 2009 — developing 21 million doses.

This is the same group that knowingly distributed millions of infected polio vaccines to Australians.

Today, the polio vaccine — although changed in formula — still causes health effects. This includes the side effect of hypotonic-hyporesponsive episodes (HHE), where babies may show signs of paleness, limpness and be unresponsive after taking the vaccine. This can last up to 48 hours.

With vaccine manufactures set to further expand the $35 billion biomedicine industry in the wake of COVID-19, many are left wondering: Are we seeing history repeat itself?

Furthermore, why should Australians continue to trust government-sponsored researchers?


The narrative is now clear: COVID-19 restrictions are unlikely to be restricted until we have a vaccine, and there are no guarantees we will ever return to normal life even when this occurs.

This is the word of Australian federal and state governments, and has primarily been directed from advice given via Bill Gates and the World Health Organisation.

Bill Gates, now the talk of the town, said in a recent interview with The Daily Show that his foundation was funding the construction of factories for seven coronavirus vaccine ‘candidates’.

He says the foundation would end up picking only one or two of the seven, meaning billions of dollars spent on manufacturing would be abandoned.

In a new interview with the BBC, Bill Gates hints at the possibility of ‘bending’ or ‘accelerating’ government regulations to speed up progress of the release of a vaccine, tipped to take 12-18 months. He says this may be required even if this requires testing to be compromised:

Bill Gates and his foundation, a modern social eugenics society, were key players in Event 201 — a now infamous “high-level pandemic exercise” carried out in New York in October 2019.

Interestingly, one of the listed participants at Event 201 was Jane Halton, the former head of the Australian Department of Health from 2002-2012. She is also the former chair of the board of the World Health Organization (WHO) and has spent over 33 years in high-level health roles.

Today, she is now a member of the board for ANZ Bank, Australian Strategic Policy Institute and Chairman of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI). CEPI is the main body responsible for monitoring group collaboration for COVID-19 vaccine development.

It is clear that Australian authorities are following a script delivered from a centralised, international level of medical and political influence, and given the track record of previous ‘safe’ vaccines and the willingness to bypass safety regulations, all individuals must question the COVID-19 agenda.

Are you willing to roll your sleeves up for Bill Gates? Do you trust the Australian medical industry?

These are the facts many are trying to suppress as we get closer towards the ‘cure’.

  1. This is a super brilliant article I will be sharing as widely as I can. We are certainly coming up to ‘crunch’ time right now as it all comes down to the vaccination. Not the endgame as such but a hugely significant step along their agenda plan.Keep up the great work and I loved your recent podcast as well guys!
