Unusually interesting discussion on the voat.co forum:
I'm old enough to remember the terror of polio was ended by a government-initiated and -funded project that finally led to the Salk vaccine, which was free, no intellectual property rights. (politics)

The polio vaccine is held out as one of the great public health achievements our time, but unfortunately, based on my deep research, it isn't. Polio was brought under control primarily due to modern sanitation and if you look at the timeline of vaccinations vs rates of polio you'll see they're not well correlated.
I won't dispute that the vaccine could be responsible for some fraction of the polio reduction (not saying how much, but it's dubious at best). But one thing I can say is the vaccine has coincided with a dramatic increase in cancer, and it's well known that polio vax culture was/is contaminated with SV-40 cancer virus, which is also widespread in cancer. I have first hand, direct knowledge of the amount of SV-40 that is present in cancer tumors, and it's not insignificant.
And now we routinely see outbreaks of polio where it's directly traced to the vaccine itself, causing many thousands of victims to become paralyzed.
We need to re-think the issue of vaccines entirely.
Polio has been virtually eradicated in India, and they literally shit in holes and use their hands to clean. Why do I mention that? Because transmission of polio is fecal-oral. So despite the lack of public health achievements, they have achieved polio eradication using a vaccine.
That being said, in India they do use oral polio vaccine, which is different from the one used in the West.
Definitely not true. Robert F Kennedy has a good take on the polio vax in India.
Promising to eradicate Polio with $1.2 billion, Gates took control of India ‘s National Advisory Board (NAB) and mandated 50 polio vaccines (up from 5) to every child before age 5. Indian doctors blame the Gates campaign for a devastating vaccine-strain polio epidemic that paralyzed 496,000 children between 2000 and 2017. In 2017, the Indian Government dialed back Gates’ vaccine regimen and evicted Gates and his cronies from the NAB. Polio paralysis rates dropped precipitously. In 2017, the World Health Organization reluctantly admitted that the global polio explosion is predominantly vaccine strain, meaning it is coming from Gates’ Vaccine Program. The most frightening epidemics in Congo, the Philippines, and Afghanistan are all linked to Gates’ vaccines. By 2018, ¾ of global polio cases were from Gates’ vaccines.
In 2014, the Gates Foundation funded tests of experimental HPV vaccines, developed by GSK and Merck, on 23,000 young girls in remote Indian provinces. Approximately 1,200 suffered severe side effects, including autoimmune and fertility disorders. Seven died. Indian government investigations charged that Gates funded researchers committed pervasive ethical violations: pressuring vulnerable village girls into the trial, bullying parents, forging consent forms, and refusing medical care to the injured girls. The case is now in the country’s Supreme Court.
In 2010, the Gates Foundation funded a trial of a GSK’s experimental malaria vaccine, killing 151 African infants and causing serious adverse effects including paralysis, seizure, and febrile convulsions to 1,048 of the 5,049 children. …Continued on slides 2 + 3.
In theory at least, vaccines might be a reasonable idea IF you could trust the people and companies who produce them. That's the problem. I trust Bill Gates and the rest of those Malthusian lunatics about as much as I'd ever trust a bunch of rattlesnakes.
