Propaganda from the 1950s shows how the polio vaccine was made – and it’s not pretty

When the very first vaccines for polio were first introduced in the 1950s, Americans were told that this “medical breakthrough” would forever change public health for the better. This was quite obviously a lie, and a recently unearthed propaganda film called “Unconditional Surrender” (1956) reveals why.

The film below explains in detail how Jonas Salk developed his inactivated polio vaccine using tissue from rhesus monkeys that had been infected with simian virus 40, or SV40, which we now know causes cancer in humans.

Hundreds of millions of people in not just America but around the world received these SV40-tainted injections between 1955 and 1963. And it would not be until 2004 that scientists published a paper in The Lancet explaining that very few people back then realized what they were getting themselves into by taking polio shots.

“Few back then grasped that these vaccines might also be a huge, inadvertent, uncontrolled experiment in interspecies viral transmission,” the paper reads in part.

(Related: Some experts believe that Pfizer’s mRNA COVID injections also contain cancer-causing SV40.)

The first children to receive polio vaccines as part of a 1954 study were left PARALYZED in the limb where the shot was injected

An investigative journalist outlined the polio jab’s manufacturing process, which is revealed in the above video. It includes all sorts of nasty ingredients including calf serum, penicillin, dihydrostreptomycin, Mycostatin (nystatin Squibb), monkey kidneys, and more.

Through various processes, the polio virus itself was converted to an “inactive” state, which requires mixing formaldehyde – the same cancer-causing chemical used in embalming fluid – into the concoction.


Once completed, the final solution was then mixed together with various chemical adjuvants, chemicals, and other ingredients allowing for mass production and “preservation” – and the mass distribution of the chemical solution all around the world.

From the very beginning, the polio jab was shown to be harmful to humans. One million children were given the shot in 1954 as part of a large-scale study, which led to a declaration of the shot being “safe and effective.” The only problem is that many of these children became paralyzed in the limb where the shot was injected.

“There were also reports of paralysis and death in several children,” the Singapore Medical Journal reported. “Investigations showed that improperly inactivated vaccine had released live virus into more than 100,000 doses of the vaccine.”

Many people do not know this but the scientists who won a Nobel Prize for being the first to grow poliovirus in a tissue culture used human tissue, while Salk used “minced-up rhesus macaque monkey kidneys, which were remarkably efficient polio factories,” The Lancet reported.

“Those who sought to supplant Salk’s formaldehyde-inactivated vaccine with live, attenuated oral vaccine also used monkey kidney cultures. Despite a manufacturing problem that, at best, left six children who received the vaccine paralyzed in the arm, and despite concerns about wild simian viruses, Salk’s shots were declared safe and effective after 1954 field trials,” the study further explains.

“The next year, after grudging approval by skeptical government regulators, free Salk shots were made available throughout the USA. By 1960, scientists and vaccine manufacturers knew that monkey kidneys were sewers of simian viruses.”

As usual, the American public was never told about any of this. There was too much money on the line, not to mention the eugenics agenda that was in motion, to tell the truth about their SV40 contamination. And the rest is history.

“The SV40 contaminated stocks of Salk polio vaccine were never withdrawn from the market but continued to be given to American children until early 1963 with full knowledge of federal health agencies,” revealed National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) co-founder and president Barbara Loe Fisher in a presentation before the U.S. House of Representatives in 2003.
