George Bernard Shaw: “I have no doubt whatsoever that vaccination is an unscientific abomination and should be made a criminal practice.”

In a letter from Dr. George Bernard Shaw to Dr. Charles Pabst:

“During the last considerable epidemic at the turn of the century, I was a member of the Health Committee of London Borough Council, and I learned how the credit of vaccination is kept up statistically by diagnosing all the re-vaccinated cases as pustular eczema, varioloid, or what-not “

”except smallpox. I discovered a suppressed report of the Metropolitan Asylums Board on a set of re-vaccinations which had produced extraordinarily disastrous results. Meanwhile I had studied the literature and statistics of the subject. I even induced a celebrated bacteriologist to read Jenner. I have no doubt whatsoever that vaccination is an unscientific abomination and should be made a criminal practice.”
