"During the mid-1800s, there were 205 cases of tetanus per 100,000 wounds among U.S. military personnel.
By the early 1900s, this rate had declined to 16 cases per 100,000 wounds--a 92 percent reduction.
During the mid-1940s, the incidence of tetanus dropped even further to .44 cases per 100,000 wounds.
(123) Some researchers attribute this decline to an increased attention to wound hygiene. (124,125) [from:]

According to DOD, compulsory vaccination of U.S. Armed Forces in WWII included tetanus, typhoid and yellow fever.

From 1922-1926, there were an estimated 1,314 cases of tetanus per year in the U.S. In the late 1940's,
the tetanus vaccine was introduced, and tetanus became a disease that was officially counted
and tracked by public health officials.
In 2000, only 41 cases of tetanus were reported in the U.S
Keep in mind that the tetanus vaccine became available for widespread civilian use in the late 1940's. Thus tetanus mortality
had declined from 205 deaths per 100,000 wounds in the American Civil War (1860) to about .4 deaths per 100,000 population in 1947
at the beginning of widespread civilian use of the vaccine. This means that sanitation, nutrition,
year around nutritional
improvements, general hygiene, and wound hygiene had reduced the mortality and incidence of tetanus by as much as 99.8 percent before
the widespread use of tetanus vaccine. Improvements in the above factors would continue to play a major role
[if not the sole role] in further reduction of tetanus.
Could tetanus vaccine have played any role what so ever in the last fraction of a percent in
NO! In a sanitary society with adequate nutrition, natural immunity to the bacteria gives almost everybody immunity against
the bacteria's ability to grow in a healthy body.
It is a far different matter where the conditions prevail which encourage the tetanus bacteria's growth.
Nobody can be immune to dirty wounds. Immunity to dirty wounds can not come from vaccination; immunity to dirty wounds
can not come from having had tetanus one or more times and recovering.
The vaccine's "active" ingredient is the poison which is made by the bacteria. Antibodies against poison do not constitute
Wound hygiene is essential, general good health is protective and vaccination is worthless.
Hillary Butler on Tetanus:
Lets look at a bit more history from the medical literature. It has always been known that war-time historically showed up the highest rate of tetanus. Far higher than in civilians. Bullet/schrapnel wounds and all, and the stress of fighting.
Boer war .28 of every thousand wounded got tetanus.
Crimean war 2.0 per 1,000
Am. Civil war 2.0 per thousand
Western front (Flanders horse country WWI average 1.47/thousand wounded. 2nd world war varied from .06 - .43 per thousand. ( and not everyone there was vaccinated either. In the paper on the American Tetanus cases, most who got tetanus had been vaccinated....)
Rusty nails account for less that 40% of tetanus. Most tetanus
comes where there is no discernable "portal of entry".
Now, if you have a look at Tetanus in America, one of the most interesting articles is a 1969 one from the
New England Medical Journal, Volume 280, Number 11, March 13. And on pages 570 there is a really interesting
decline graph for mortality rates, which shows that the mortality rate plummetted dramatically from 64/100,000
in 1900 to 8/100,000 in 1940. By 1950, with most mothers still unvaccinated, it was 4.5/100,000.
Then there was the study in JAMA Nov 19, 1982, Volume 248, No 19, in which a large number of the unvaccianted
Amish showed serological evidence of immunity to both diphtheria and tetanus.
(Incidentally, the same was thought about rabies (that there is no natural immunity), until a recent study
showed that in Alaskan trappers who had never had any vaccine, they too had antibodies. Poof goes that theory)
"Tetanus is a very rare disease in developed countries:
there are only about 12 cases of tetanus per year in Australia, and half of those who got it were vaccinated."
Tetanus is a problem of wound hygiene; not vaccination status.
As with all vaccines, the tetanus vaccine used today is toxic.
General good health, including nutritional status is important in who aquires tetanus and how severe the case is.
Vitamin C used in treatment cuts mortality.
Mortality rates in
Patients receiving Vit C...........not receiving Vit c
1 - 12 yrs 00% 74.2%
11 - 30 yrs 37% 67.8%
See: Tetanus the disease versus the vaccine
A tetanus vaccination cannot possibly protect from the disease since the human organism cannot build up any immunity after contracting the disease (as is the same after HIB, diphtheria or TB). So, if nature hasn't planned the immunity, how does the vaccine work?
Furthermore, the tetanus vaccination (as is the case with the diphtheria vaccine) is a so-called toxoid vaccine. The killed poison of the tetanus bacilli is injected into the body and meant to protect us. But the human body cannot build up immunity against poisons 31. How can the vaccine protect us then? The official statistics of the various countries show us that the vaccine does not protect us. The Robert Koch Institute in Germany admits that 2/3 people who contract tetanus have been fully vaccinated 32. The rate in Switzerland was 50% fully vaccinated and still contracted the disease.

population of the U.S. was not immunized. For all those decades, where were the
tetanus cases from all those rusty nails?
Other diseases for which vaccinations are provided are barely worth mentioning,
since children almost never die from tetanus or rubella.
Shots in the Dark --WND Commentary
Diphtheria and Tetanus
There is no proof that recovering from either of the diseases diphtheria or tetanus confers immunity. Worse, the vaccine consists not of virus but of toxin created by the virus. Both of these diseases declined prior to vaccine introduction, and there is not even a junk science explanation for how either of these toxin laden vaccines could possibly aid in increasing natural immunity.

rabies, anymore than being punctured by a rusty nail means you have tetanus.

Drop in Immunity following Vaccinations
The second example involves the testing of T-lymphocyte subpopulations (white blood cells which help to govern the immune system) in eleven healthy adults before and after routine tetanus immunizations. The results showed a significant though temporary drop in T-helper lymphocytes. Special concern rests in the fact that in 4 of the subjects the T-helper cells dropped to levels found in active AIDS patients. (25)
SBS --Dr. Buttram's 'Rebuttal' article
(d) In 1984 an intriguing study was reported in a little noted letter-to-the-editor in the New England Journal of Medicine in which a significant though temporary drop in T-helper lymphocytes was found in 11 healthy adults following routine tetanus booster immunizations. (11) Special concern rests in the fact that, in 4 of the subjects, the T-helper lymphocytes fell to levels seen in active AIDS patients. If this was the result of a single vaccine in healthy adults, it is sobering to think of the possible consequences of multiple vaccines (19 within the first 6 or so months of life at latest count) given to infants with their immature and vulnerable immune systems. Unfortunately, other than clinical observation, we can only speculate at these consequences, as the test has never been repeated.

Autism, Mercury and DTP
Vaccines of the kind given to babies as early as at birth and then one month later (hepatitis B vaccine) and DPT, Polio and Hib at 6 to 8 weeks of age, contain a number of toxins. The DPT (three in one vaccine), being the toxoid vaccine, contains pertussis, diphtheria and tetanus toxins which are treated with formaldehyde to decrease their toxicity. However, all of these treated toxins (toxoids) have the ability to revert back to their original toxicity by passage in the injected individuals, as demonstrated by Samore and Siber. (13) These toxins are capable of causing, and they demonstrably cause, serious immunological, vascular and metabolic injuries, of which scurvy is one of many documented mechanisms.

Leading Edge Research: Vaccination Paradigm Analysis Part 1
The DPT vaccine, which we will discuss later, combines the toxoids of diphtheria and tetanus with the whole cells of pertussis bacteria to form a single vaccine which has proven to be quite lethal to humans, especially infants with immature immune systems and unmyelinated nerves, and has resulted in death, encephalitic paralysis and brain damage. DPT vaccine is produced by taking tetanus bacteria and adding it to a broth of dextrose, beef heart infusion, salt and casein. Diphtheria bacteria are added to a similar broth. After the poisonous toxins are produced in each of the vats, the broth is filtered and carcinogenic formalin is added in an futile attempt to attenuate the toxoids. Poisonous methanol alcohol is then added to precipitate the toxoid, which is dried to a powder and mixed with glycerine. Pertussis bacteria are chemically killed by adding a poisonous mercury-based chemical called thimerosal, and aluminum hydroxide or potassium sulfate is added. The result is called DPT vaccine, which is injected into human children after testing on mice to determine the strength at which 50% of a test lot of mice survive. The result will be discussed later in detail, but the neurological disorders produced by such activity are part of the puzzle of why crime is so rampant in our society today. This fact is discussed in another chapter which illustrates that despite the fact they have known vaccines produce minimum brain damage since 1926, and they have known that this MBD produces aberrant behavior leading to criminal activity, they ignore that fact and do it anyway. Hegelian production of social aberration to justifiy greater social control. Simple.
Leading Edge Master Analysis of the Vaccination Paradigm
Vijendra K. Singh, a scientist at the Utah State University, published a conclusive study in 2001 confirming that MMR-vaccinated children have abnormally high levels of measles virus antibodies, indicating that autism may be a neuro-immune response to the vaccine. Singh found auto-antibodies in 80% of autistic children while normal children had none. These auto-antibodies apparently attack the myelin proteins surrounding the sheath of nerve fibers, resulting in brain dysfunction. Singh found that 55% of autistic children developed this condition after receiving the MMR vaccine and 33% after receiving the diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (DTP) vaccine. 11

MY STORY -
A SLOW-ONSET TETANUS VACCINE REACTION
AND FILING FOR THE NATIONAL CHILDHOOD VACCINE COMPENSATION PROGRAM
By Jan DeGrandchamp
After the nurse gave me the Tetanus shot, I felt a strange tingling going up the side of my neck, the same side as the injection. While making my payment, I mentioned the tingling to the receptionist. She did not answer me; she just took my money. No one told me anything about vaccine reactions or what to do if they happened. I don't remember getting any information or signing a release form. If I did, it was a perfunctory task without any discussion about what to do if a reaction occurred. No blood tests were taken or ordered. Twenty minutes later, I was in my car heading home. Click on the link to read the complete story.
