Smallpox vaccine virus' curious relationship to syphilis
by Don Harkins
The virus in the smallpox vaccine is called the vaccinia virus. Historical
references clearly illustrate the origin of the vaccinia virus. However,
modern science claims its presence is a "mystery" and poses five
none of which have been proven, in an attempt to explain the origin of this
The five theories 21st century science offers are that the vaccinia virus
1. derived from variola virus by passage in cows;
2. derived from variola
virus by passage in humans (variolation);
3. derived through hybridisation
between cowpox and variola viruses;
4. a fossil virus maintained in the
laboratory but otherwise extinct;
5. derived from cowpox virus by repeated
passage on the skin of animals (Fenner, 1992; Behbehani, 1983).
Not one of the five theories even consider the well-documented contents of
19th century books such as "Cowpox and Vaccinal Syphilis," by Dr.
Creighton (1891), a professor of microscopic anatomy at Cambridge
It is not difficult to understand why the government-supported public
community prefers to keep the public in the dark about the most likely
origins of vaccinia. The truth is disgusting and reminiscent of modern
medicine's "eye-of-newt, spleen-of-bat, Dark Ages medicine roots. If the
public was told vaccinia was the product of sores that developed on the
irritated udders of cows milked by the syphilitic hands of 18th century
maidens, they may be less inclined to stand in line for a smallpox
In 1796, when the father of modern vaccinology Ed Jenner "discovered"
smallpox vaccine, the serum-making process was crude and amazingly
nonscientific. With a little background, a layperson can easily understand
Dr. Creighton, who also wrote "Epidemics of Great Britain (1893),"
that cowpox (vaccinia) is, "an eruption of a few pimples which are made
bleed by the merciless manipulations of the milkers...The blood forms
that are dislodged every six hours, the indurated [hardened], phagendemic
[rapidly spreading] ulcers form on the sites of the original
undisturbed by the milkers' hands, has no existence in the originating cow.
It is the persistent irritation that makes it a pox."
In other words, at the time smallpox vaccine was being observed, it was
understood that cow milkers with syphilitic hands caused pox-like sores on
the udders of cows. Secretions from this diseased material were then taken
from the cow, mixed with various compounds and rendered into a preparation.
This material was then administered to persons by applying it to broken
Forced vaccination in England was discontinued in 1898 after a Royal
Commission, upon which Dr. Creighton and playwright George Bernard Shaw
determined that smallpox vaccine caused epidemics of several diseases --
including smallpox and syphilis. "...[d]eaths from infantile syphilis per
million births, under enforced vaccination (1867-1878) were 1,738 as
to 564 per million under voluntary vaccination (1847-1853)," wrote Dr.
Collins in 1881.
In a 1905 letter to anti-vaccinist Chas Higgins of New York, Parke Davis &
Co. described what little it knew about the smallpox vaccine it produced.
one seems to know the exact nature of this product. It would seem to us,
however, that the theory that cowpox is but modified smallpox, is the most
tenable one. Particularly does it seem true in view of the facts reported
Dr. Monkton Copeman, Director of the Government Vaccine Work in London,
he had been able to transmit smallpox virus to monkeys, from monkeys to
heifers, and from heifers to man, the resulting vaccination on the human
subject being identically the same as that produced by vaccine as
By "properly" transferring the smallpox virus from man to animals
was produced and was determined to provide immunity to smallpox. "On
theoretical grounds, it seems to us that this is a very plausible
of the origin of vaccinia," Parke Davis concluded in the letter.
It was well-known at the time that mass and mandated vaccination against
smallpox, as previously stated, was responsible for epidemics of syphilis.
Even the pro-vaccine textbook "Vaccines," by Plotkin & Mortimer (1994)
recognized the historic relationship of the smallpox vaccine to the dreaded
disease. "As the 19th century progressed, however, the initial wave of
enthusiasm for vaccination subsided when difficulties were
experienced....when it was found that, on some occasions, syphilis was
transmitted in the process."
Plotkin & Mortimer even went on to explain that syphilis appeared in Europe
during the 15th century and how, "...writers began to use the prefix
distinguish variola, the smallpox, from syphilis, the great pox."
The 1979 Encyclopedia Britannica concurs that syphilis first appeared in
Europe after Columbus returned from the Americas. However, leprosy was
prevalent in Europe prior to the 1500s. Certain similarities between the
diseases indicate, "it is likely that many cases thought to be leprosy
Smallpox vaccine has not changed very much from the days when pus was
squeezed out of the sores from cows milked by syphilitic milkers. Plotkin &
Mortimer described how modern smallpox vaccine is made: "Most [smallpox]
vaccine now available for use is grown on the skin of a calf and harvested
after sacrifice of the animal."
Are we to make the assumption that the calf is then butchered and sold as
The point of the exercise
The point of this article is to show that those who have been masterminding
pandemic preparedness plans have ignored history to come up with five
ridiculous "theories" for the origin of vaccinia virus.
Why? Because the truth is so simple to understand and so disgusting people
would be less likely to fall in line with their sleeves rolled up if they
For whatever reason, fooling millions of Americans into being vaccinated
a virus associated with syphilis, leprosy (and numerous other diseases [see
Smallpox Alert! ordering info page 3]) is more important than a different
outcome that would prevail under the truth.
History is the greatest teacher. We have already learned that smallpox
vaccine causes more public health problems than it solves. We have also
learned that it leaves pain, misery and death in its wake.
If public health officials are intentionally obscuring smallpox vaccine's
sordid past to help achieve the mass and mandated objective, then we must
assume that pain, misery and death -- not public health -- are the intended

Extract taken from an anti-vaccination booklet published in 1924 entitled:
`Small-Pox - A Healing Crisis & The Truth About Vaccination.' By H Valentine Knaggs
"For over a century Small-pox has had more free advertising than any other disease. But
the same authorities say little about measles, scarletina or diphtheria, all of which are
infinitely less desirable than Small-pox. The only explanation of the official enthusiasm
for Small-pox, as compared with the more dangerous diseases, is that the great and
profitable Vaccination industry has always flourished on Small-pox."
Those medical men who have conducted independent research on Small-pox and who
prefer to form their own conclusions are, of course, unaffected by the organised and
officially inspired scares so adroitly arranged at convenient intervals. One of the very
first doctors to realise the truth about Small-pox was the far sighted Dr Sydenham, who
"As it is palpable to all the world how fatal Small-pox proves to many of all ages, so it
is clear to me from all the observations that I can possibly make, that if no mischief be
done, either by physician or nurse, it is the most safe and slight of all diseases."(From:
The Works of Sydenham) [Please note: Dr Sydenham lived in the 1600's!]
The Electronic Test
Dr. Abram's instrument, which detects and identifies disease taints in a few drops of
blood or of saliva is increasingly used by doctors in diagnosing cases. As the test tube
is to the analytical chemist, so is this new electrical machine to the up-to-date doctor. It
shows that the taints found in vaccine are identical with those in the virus extracted from
Small-pox pustules. A recent report states that:
"lymph, when submitted to the test, show the reactions of congenital syphilis (bovine
type) and some of them show streptococcus (pus type) and tuberculosis (bovine
Dr Lindlahr further states that:
"The pus-like mass exuding from the Small-pox pustule contains the virus not only of
Small-pox but also of scrofula, psora, tuberculosis, syphilis, gonorrhoea, anthrax,
lumpy jaw and poisons in the animal or human being from which the virus was
secured." The infallible analysis of this new scientific aid to diagnosis shows that all the
taints contained in the lymph enter the body of the vaccinated person and remain there,
a source of danger until they are all brought to the surface and forcibly ejected by the
The patient who has had the benefit of Small-pox-Nature' greatest cleansing
process-rapidly improves in health, enjoys renewed vitality and a freedom from all
chronic disease taints. Inherited or contracted taints of syphilis, gonorrhoea and other
septic diseases are all cleared away in the virus which is eliminated.

Dr. Peebles, "... The most that any physician of good standing
now contends is that vaccination modifies the disease. This is stoutly denied. On the
contrary it aggravates the disease as there are two poisons now in the system instead of
one for nature to contend against. It is sanitation, diet, pure air, calmness of mind,
confidence and cleanliness that modify the smallpox. All of these modifiers are infinitely
cheaper, safer and in every way preferable to cowpox poison which, if it does not kill,
often marks, maims and sows the seeds of future eczema, tumors, ulcers, carbuncles,
cancer and leprosy."

DR. R. H. BAKEWELL ON THE RISKS OF VACCINATION.
In a paper read before the Auckland (New Zealand) Institute, 20th July,
1891, and printed in vol. xxix. of the "Transactions of the New Zealand
Institute," Dr. R. Hall Bakewell, formerly Vaccinator-General and
Medical Officer of Health for the Colony of Trinidad; author of the
"Pathology and Treatment of Smallpox;" Fellow of the Royal Medical and
Chirurgical Society of London, etc., says :-" The permanent change in
the blood is quite another matter. I commenced, but have never
completed, some microscopical investigations into the conditions of the
infant's blood before, during, and after vaccination. It is evident that
a fertile field for inquiry is open here; and without a series of
well-conducted examinations, extending over children of different races,
and in different climates, no positive conclusions could be arrived at.
But of one thing we are quite certain, as it does not need the aid of a
microscope; there is a large destruction of the red corpuscles during
the febrile stage of vaccinia, followed by an anaemic condition. How
long this anaemic condition lasts we have no trustworthy observations to
tell us; and how far it extends - that is, what is the actual loss of red
corpuscles - is, as far as I know, in the same state of uncertainty. Of
course, we often
find parents complaining that children who were perfectly healthy before
vaccination have lost colour, strength, and flesh after it, and have
never recovered their previous good health. But these complaints,
tinctured as they evidently are by a strong prejudice against compulsory
vaccination, must be received with caution. Still, there is such a mass
of evidence of this kind that it ought to be allowed some weight.
Origin of Smallpox virus & how vaccine is 'made'
So much for the inevitable results of vaccination. The accidents of
vaccination may be roughly classified under the following heads:--
1. Inflammatory: including erysipelas and other septicaemic diseases;
glandular swellings; phagedaena, sloughing, or mortification at the
2.Eruptive diseases, mostly of a pustular character, occurring with or
immediately after the vaccine eruption; eczema, herpetic eruptions,
ecthyma, and impetigo.
3. The inoculation of constitutional diseases - syphilis, leprosy,
Now, as regards the inflammatory diseases, there are some vaccinators of
large experience who assert that they have never seen any ill-results of
this kind arising from vaccination. Well, some people are very lucky,
but they have no right to argue from their limited experience that such
accidents never occur. I have been very fortunate in my midwifery cases;
I have never lost a case in my own practice for thirty-five years; but
for all that I do not deny that women die in childbirth. I have seen
erysipelas more than once or twice, or a dozen times. In the West Indies
it used to be common. The inflammation that followed the vaccination of
coloured children was very intense, and
the number of insects attacking the unfortunate children no doubt
contributed to carry the germs of erysipelas to them. Glandular
swellings, particularly in scrofulous children, are not rare. I had
myself a case in which each vaccine vesicle was followed by
mortification of the skin beneath it, and a phagedaenic ulceration which
required very vigorous measures to stop it. This was in a young woman
during the epidemic period in Trinidad. I am not sure whether it was a
primary vaccination or a re-vaccination. The latter, as is well known,
causes very severe inflammation, pain, glandular irritation, and
erysipelas in the majority of adults, besides severe and most oppressive
disturbance; at least, this is the case at the time of epidemics, when
re-vaccination is most practised.
Post vaccinal eruptions are so very common amongst the children of the
poorer classes in England that they form one of the stock arguments
The inoculation of constitutional diseases used to be laughed to scorn
in my younger days. It was said in my hearing by Sir John Simon, K.C.B.,
then Mr. Simon, the Medical Officer of the Privy Council, that no such
inoculation could take place without gross carelessness or unskilfulness
on the part of the vaccinator. I used to be of the same opinion ; but a
case I saw some sixteen or seventeen years ago convinced me that an
infant might look perfectly healthy, and yet be the subject of
unmistakable hereditary syphilis. The evidence that syphilis has been
communicated by vaccination is simply overwhelming. I may refer to the
report of the Committee of the House of Commons on compulsory
vaccination; the third report of the Royal Commission on vaccination now
sitting in London; the work of Mr. Jonathan Hutchinson, F.R.S., late
President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, on syphilis, in
which he devotes a chapter to the description of vaccinal syphilis; and
my own experience in this colony and elsewhere. I have seen three cases
in this colony alone.
"On my return to Trinidad I had to encounter an epidemic of small-pox
which spurred us on to vaccinate right and left, and to revaccinate all
who would submit to the operation. But so firmly fixed was the belief of
the people that vaccination from a child of a leprous family would be a
possible cause of the vaccinated persons becoming leprous, that not even
the fear of such a terrible epidemic of small-pox as was then going on
would induce them to allow themselves or their children to be vaccinated
from any vaccinifer in whose family any member was a leper. And then, to
my astonishment and dismay, I found that there was hardly a Creole
family in the island - white, coloured, or black - free from the taint of
