My mom said she got a Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever vaccine in the army in the mid 70's.

Since we don't currently have a RMSF vaccine I assume that the US Army RMSF vaccine was considered ineffective.

Do you think she could have been infected by RMSF with this vaccine trial?

There's some info online saying that the vaccine was attempted but no mention on patient outcomes.

She ended up being diagnosed with Sarcoidosis years later. The Army randomly paid her a settlement for that over 30 years later.

I'm not sure what their role in that was. As far as I know her VA Dr. just told her she was eligible for compensation. I don't think it was related to the RMSF vaccine.

I'm just curious to know if anyone ever heard anything about these failed govt. RMSF vaccines.

I remember reading about the RMSF vaccine while searching grants. What stuck out in my mind was one researchers, can't remember name, kept getting grant after grant- MILLIONS of dollars- for trying to make a vaccine and never was successful.

I remembered how wasteful this was at the time. Anyhow, here is the grant site. Only type in subject area Rocky mountain spotted fever vaccine and adjust the years, then hit submit.

http://projectreporter.nih.gov/reporter.cfm?CFID=5142125&CFTOKEN=64019589

Here is the link to the results when I did it, just not sure the link will pull up my search results for you.

The year on this search function only goes back so far, but if you read the results of the studies you may gain some info otherwise not accessible.

Also important in trying to figure things out.

Mercury, aluminum and some of the (oh, so many) adjuvants may not have the same decades ago as today, in either the same forms or amounts.

After figuring out the live virus / dead virus matter . . . since vaccine problems are often more about toxic additives, it can be hard to sort this all out, getting the exact "recipe" or ingredient list of that particular product.

Some things may not have been (then or now) declared, either, as an ingredient.

In fact, just this year another $1.8 million plus was granted for Lyme vaccines.

The problem? If you don't have tests that are accurate, your vaccine study results won't be accurate. How can anyone develop a vaccine using studies that base their results on flawed tests?

This is your tax money being flushed down the toilet and into the pockets of the IDSA clam heads, year after year after year.

Mycoplasma plays a GIANT role in sarcoidosis.

Mycoplasma in vaccines and the military is researched by Garth Nicholson.

If you google mycoplasma+vaccine+military or similar word you will find lots of info.

Only speaking personally, but a family member has sarcoidosis and was just diagnosed with mycoplasma and babesia infections.

Take care

Thanks for your thoughts on the subject. The NIH reporter site is acting up but I'll check it out another time when I'm up for being annoyed by the government.

I'll have to talk to my mom more specifically this thanksgiving about the money she received for her sarcoidosis. She had always assumed she contracted it in the georgia swamplands during basic training since, thankfully, she never went overseas to Vietnam.

I've read a little about Garth Nicholson and his Mycoplasa research. I have mycoplasma as one of my coinfections, along with Babesia as well.
