I challenge the accuracy of your claim. According to the US CDC, increased incidents of Guillain-Barré among people who received the 1976 swine flu vaccine was approximately one in 100,000. While “many” can have many definitions, 1 in 100,000 probably doesn’t fit no matter how you try to shoehorn it in.

To put the numbers in perspective, 45 million people all up received the 1976 vaccination. 450 of them ended up with Guillain-Barré.

It took a nationwide vaccination program to even notice such a slight incidence.

So to suggest that the 1976 swine flu vaccine was rushed to market and not tested sufficiently just doesn’t hold up.
