36. The vaccines available at that time were: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTP) and smallpox

The polio vaccine was introduced in the late 1950s. The MMR was not in use until 1971 (I got the first measles, mumps and rubella vaccines in the 60s and the MMR when it was introduced).

I had chicken pox - an extremely severe case; all my mucus membranes were affected and I had such a high fever I had to be given ice baths - when I was in my teens. The chicken pox vaccine did not become available until 1995. I had the pneumonia jab when it became available - so nice not getting pneumonia every year.
