How New York City Vaccinated 6 Million People in Less Than a Month

When a single case of smallpox arrived in Manhattan in 1947, a severe outbreak was possible. A decisive civil servant made a bold decision.

By John Florio and Ouisie Shapiro
Dec. 18, 2020

On Easter weekend in 1947, New York City buzzed with an air of invincibility. The miseries of World War II were finally over, and New York, like the rest of the country, was buoyant. The future promised great things. The Polaroid Land camera had just been invented. Consumer TV sets were appearing in living rooms. The transistor radio was in the works.

What the public didn’t know was that smallpox, the scourge of civilizations, had improbably re-emerged in the city five weeks earlier.

On March 1, a 47-year-old American businessman, Eugene Le Bar, arrived in New York after a long bus ride from Mexico City. He was on his way to Maine, but he had been feeling sick and checked into a Midtown hotel with his wife. After sightseeing, he collapsed into bed, exhausted, with a headache and a pain in the back of his neck.

By March 5, Mr. Le Bar was in Bellevue Hospital with a 105-degree fever and a peculiar-looking rash on his face and hands. Three days later, he was transferred to Willard Parker, the city’s communicable disease hospital. His doctors considered several diagnoses, none definitive. Because he had a vaccination scar, they ruled out smallpox. On March 10, Mr. Le Bar was dead. …

Thanks to a vaccine developed in the late 1700s and refined in the decades that followed, smallpox outbreaks had generally been contained.

In 1980, the World Health Organization officially declared smallpox eradicated. …

The city’s health commissioner, Israel Weinstein, had taken the job 10 months earlier. He’d been a child on the Lower East Side when a smallpox outbreak brought the city to its knees in the early 1900s, killing 720 New Yorkers in a two-year period. Now he was both a medical doctor and a scientist; he had earned a doctorate from New York University, along with a Ph.D. and an M.D. from Columbia. ….

Dr. Weinstein wasted no time. Knowing there was only one way to deal with the virus — vaccination — he took action. At 2 o’clock that day, he held a news conference, urging all city dwellers to get vaccinated immediately, even if they had been inoculated as children. Re-vaccinations were necessary, he said, in case people had lost their immunity. …

The response was so great that the city enlisted thousands of civilian volunteers to help deliver inoculations. Armed with vials of vaccine, the volunteers, along with professional health care providers, administered as many as eight doses per minute. Making their way through every school in the city, they inoculated 889,000 students. In the first two weeks, five million New Yorkers were vaccinated against smallpox.

S0, I’m guessing this 1947 re-vaccination campaign was overkill. They didn’t bother with it in other cities that the bus-rider had passed through yet the existing inoculations were apparently good enough. But it’s still memorable for what 1940s Americans could get done in a hurry.

    NOW IT ALL MAKES SENSE!!

    OFF-TOPIC

    Incidentally, the actor-like magistrate (and with actor like, I mean, she's acting like a paid and bought judge in some mafia flick and doesn't even hide it) in the Assange case ... doesn't exist!

    This is better than an episode from the X-Files featuring Cigarette Smoking Man.

    I hope journalists from the Guardian will be next in line. There is no way that won't happen.

    ON-TOPIC

    Meanwhile, fines and death of white people will continue until morale improves:

    NY gov Cuomo threatens hospitals with FINES if they don’t vaccinate at maximum capacity


    The governor warned hospitals that fail to deploy their vaccine stocks within a week of receiving them that they will not only be fined up to $100,000 but also be cut out of future vaccine distribution. He has repeatedly criticized the rollout of the jab as too slow.
     
    So, who will administer the vaccination if the hospitals are cut off? This sounds like some Stalinist economic program, passed through the microwave, then straight into a wokpolitician's brain.

    However, critics have pointed out that Cuomo has only himself to blame for the less-than-stellar “operating efficiency” of many state hospitals. The governor has slashed the state healthcare budget dramatically since taking office in 2011, even moving forward with deep cuts to Medicaid this year despite the pandemic. The state has lost over 20,000 hospital beds in the last 20 years.
     
    You lose some, you win some...

    The governor has also threatened anyone who attempts to ‘jump the line’ and receive an early vaccine with a $1 million fine. He volunteered to wait until black and Hispanic New Yorkers receive their shots before getting his, while observing nonwhite New Yorkers died at a much higher rate than white people.
     
    Here's betting he has already received his first shot.

    I’m not clicking on a damn tweet, but for the record, realistically, I pick removing the urinals. We still have some bars in town that have those troughs in the men’s bathroom, so if they have those, they’d be the first to go. Cheap and easy way to do the remodeling for today’s diverse Navy, and ships have room to spare and all…

  17. “We are in a war-like situation. We need to be vaccinating TWENTY FOUR-SEVEN. We are losing precious time.”

    I want vaccination to proceed as fast as possible too so we can end the real damage: the government-imposed lockdowns and fear.

    However, what “war-like situation”?

    As much as i didn’t like what they did, China and Australia did, at least they were able to interrupt transmission, it seems. In the US and the West in general we just worked ourselves up into a lather and “???”. If this HAD been a war, we’d have lost.

    I’m pretty conflicted about this whole thing today: the fear and lockdowns were (imo) exaggerated compared to the danger posed by covid. OTOH, our response (other than the vaccine) was also totally ineffective in doing much to slow or stop the pandemic, or so it seems.

    This seems like a “you made the worst choices and accomplished nothing” outcome in a decision making training scenario or game.

    Pre-coronavirus we would vacation in Karuizawa, and the entire town shuts down at 8:00 p.m., including restaurants. There are zillions of eateries, and they all shut down at 8:00. There's only one exception, a small chain ramen/gyoza/chuuka place that is open late, and attracts a lot of male blue-collar night workers. Although the sleepy, early-to-bed nature of the town appeals to me, I always thought it would be nice counter-programming to have a restaurant that opens at 8:00 or 9:00 at night and stays open until 7:00 a.m. or so, something more interesting than the ramen joint. I'm sure there are financial reasons why such a restaurant wouldn't work (money tends not to be left on the table, and there are no original ideas) but still ...

    I don't think there are unpleasant facts per se in there, he's just pointing out the motivated reasoning (hypocrisy?) in how "Covid deaths" vs "vaccine deaths" are counted.

    And he's right, it's an obvious difference with no obvious good explanation. Really it's another failure of our public health PhDs and medical ethicists because they've focused on "wash your hands for 20 seconds" and lockdown messaging instead of working on soberly communicating risks and tradeoffs.

    TBH though we're probably not there yet (anymore?) as a society where we have the education, language, trust and adequate shared values to talk about it without telling about people trying to kill grandpa for profit and/or because they're "too selfish".

    Arguably the progressive and scientific movements won out over the rigid and vengeful Christian approach, but then exploded into the rigid and vengeful woke religion.

    You're thinking of the Yorktown. Not renamed to fool the Japanese but simply because the first Yorktown was hit multiple times--finally by a Jap sub--and sunk at Midway. So the new Essex class carrier being built was named Yorktown in her honor.

    This was back when our carriers had respectable names, not this slimy nonsense of carriers being named for mediocre politicians.

    Our elite not only sucks at the most basic job of an elite--preservation of the nation--but they continuously pat themselves on the back.

  42. The federal government quickly granted bonus money of $40,000 to hospitals for every COVID patient placed on a ventilator to increase the fatality rate and increase hospital bills. But no bonus money for vaccinating people They could have created a bonus system for each hospital/clinic that vaccinates their quota of elderly people per day. Nurses are accustomed to working 12 hour shifts , and working evening shifts etc…Should have been easy to meet the targets, since they have an abundance of available vaccines and most hospitals have been laying-off nurses the past 6 months due to lack of hospitalizations , and empty facilities across the area since May. Half the nurses I know have either been laid off or have seen reduced hours since summer, due to lack of demand. My aunt was laid off when her facility closed in April. My sister had her hours cut in half and my mother was terminated in December. All nurses, all with little work since the pandemic began.

    Here in NJ they announced back in November that they would open hundreds of vaccine centers and 6 mega-sites. the announced mega-centers are set to open in another 3 weeks. Hard to see why these mega centers were not opened up by January , since they began planning for this in October. These mega-sites are in places like the Atlantic City convention Center , which have been sitting idle and empty for 9 months…not sure why they were not up and running by today with most of the vaccines sitting in freezers and thousands of vaccines arriving each week without being utilized.

    Most counties have a plan for a point of distribution (POD) that those counties have to practice to get disaster preparedness grant money. Yet, many states seem to want to ignore their own plans and put the burden on hospitals (which really do not do immunizations very much) and retail pharmacies that do a few but have not way to really scale up.

    The failures of the vaccination program shows what happens when state and local governments try to keep every stakeholder group from complaining.

    So 1947 New York epidemic is yet another case where the index patient had in fact been vaccinated for smallpox. similarly the last epidemic on the planet, in Yugoslavia in the 70s, the WHO reported the index case had been vaccinated as had three quarters of the adult cases.

    I have searched and I have never found any credible scientific evidence that smallpox vaccine was the least bit effective. Fenner et al cited three scientific publications, and every one of them assumed that if a patient in an epidemic had not had a vaccine scar recorded by the doctor, then he had not been vaccinated. this was thoroughly debunked by Alfred Russell Wallace in his 1898 book “Vaccination a delusion” https://archive.org/details/b21356336 .

    throughout the 19th century in England Germany Sweden and Boston there were numerous smallpox epidemics in 100% vaccinated populations.

    smallpox was not eliminated, close to 200 years after the vaccine was in use, because of the vaccine. it was eliminated by the biggest UN program in history up to that time, which knocked on doors in India and in such places looking to catch cases early and quarantine them. and as usual vaccines claimed the credit.

    NY gov Cuomo threatens hospitals with FINES if they don’t vaccinate at maximum capacity

    The governor warned hospitals that fail to deploy their vaccine stocks within a week of receiving them that they will not only be fined up to $100,000 but also be cut out of future vaccine distribution. He has repeatedly criticized the rollout of the jab as too slow.

    So, who will administer the vaccination if the hospitals are cut off? This sounds like some Stalinist economic program, passed through the microwave, then straight into a wokpolitician’s brain.

    However, critics have pointed out that Cuomo has only himself to blame for the less-than-stellar “operating efficiency” of many state hospitals. The governor has slashed the state healthcare budget dramatically since taking office in 2011, even moving forward with deep cuts to Medicaid this year despite the pandemic. The state has lost over 20,000 hospital beds in the last 20 years.

    You lose some, you win some…

    The governor has also threatened anyone who attempts to ‘jump the line’ and receive an early vaccine with a $1 million fine. He volunteered to wait until black and Hispanic New Yorkers receive their shots before getting his, while observing nonwhite New Yorkers died at a much higher rate than white people.

    Here’s betting he has already received his first shot.

    New York City Officials Initially Downplayed Coronavirus Threat

    In the days and weeks before New York City implemented a virtual shutdown in early March, city officials urged their constituents to go about their daily lives without fear — and even suggested that concerns about the burgeoning coronavirus pandemic were rooted in anti-Chinese animus.
    ….
    City councilman Mark Levine, head of the City Council health committee, attended the Lunar New Year parade on February 9 and urged his constituents to join him.

    By the time the Lunar New Year parade arrived, it was already clear that a humanitarian disaster had occurred in Wuhan, as evidenced by the chants at the parade.

    [MORE]

    Barbot continued through the beginning of March to reassure New Yorkers that they could carry on with their business so long as they took a few minor health precautions in the process.
    […]
    Levine also criticized at least one early effort to begin “social distancing” before the CDC recommended the practice.
    […]
    By the time Levine admonished Hillel, nine people in contact with the New Rochelle resident had tested positive. One New Jersey resident and one Long Island resident, neither of whom had contact with the original New Rochelle carrier, had also tested positive at the time of Levine’s tweet.
    […]
    De Blasio appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on March 10 and joined President Trump in casting the coronavirus as similar to the flu.

    “If you’re under 50 and you’re healthy, which is most New Yorkers, there’s very little threat here. This disease, even if you were to get it, basically acts like a common cold or flu,” de Blasio said. That same day, Cuomo deployed the National Guard to set up a “containment zone” in New Rochelle, where the coronavirus cases had ballooned into a cluster.

    And he’s right, it’s an obvious difference with no obvious good explanation. Really it’s another failure of our public health PhDs and medical ethicists because they’ve focused on “wash your hands for 20 seconds” and lockdown messaging instead of working on soberly communicating risks and tradeoffs.

    TBH though we’re probably not there yet (anymore?) as a society where we have the education, language, trust and adequate shared values to talk about it without telling about people trying to kill grandpa for profit and/or because they’re “too selfish”.

    Arguably the progressive and scientific movements won out over the rigid and vengeful Christian approach, but then exploded into the rigid and vengeful woke religion.

    His later book, Lies Across America, came out in 1999 but it seems to have become the Bible of the statute-bashers; in fact it may have sparked the whole idea of "revolution through statuary."

    governments are willing to immunize fewer people rather than have the rich and connected white people getting vaccinated first.

    The CDC is quite willing to let elderly non-white people die as collateral so that elderly white people will die.

    I, for one, would welcome the Chad Israeli pizza delivery guy over Virgin Fauci.

    Rear Admiral George Stephen Morrison, the Commander of the fleet that encountered magic ghost gunboats in the Gulf of Tonkin, kick starting the Vietnam Fiasco, is also the father of the guy who shows up out of nowhere in Laurel Canyon, with an album full of music and lyrics about sex and drugs, ready to go to the top of the charts. Reference Lookout Mountain the USAF Motion Picture Lab above Laurel Canyon.

    Spooky family.

    The brooklynbugle(dot)com had this to say:
    "Jim Morrison, of course, was a singer whose father started the Vietnam War. It is one of the spectacular ironies of geo-cultural history that one of the men intrinsically involved in the giant lie that began the Vietnam War was the FATHER of a prime figure linked to the '60s counter culture associated with the opposition to that war."

  85. Have, you, darling Steve, been relegated to the basement of Unz Review!?? – I am thwarted by evil search engines just to find you! WTF! I mean, your site is so shadow/misdirected banded!

    Set up your own website for ffs. All the people I listen to and watch are back in old school – many of them are even older than you. The freedom of having one’s own server (ask Hillary) can not be overestimated.

    Unz is polluted with oldies and annoying, if not disgusting, Communists and apologists who want to hang on to their jobs. I can tell there are pedos and creepies (my new word) there, too. I do believe Unz will die as a platform because it is chock a’ block filled with old Communists.

    I got tired of the old guys, left and right, who hated me. There is only so much hate a girl can take…even an old girl out to pasture like me!

    Happy New Year! And, GTFOO Unz and on to a Brave New World – I miss your brain! – believe me, many of my friends who thought the Unz crowd was just way too old and obnoxious ( the Unz commentator’s condescension) for them to bother with, have found fresher commentators and platforms to rant on.

    The pro-Trumpers/renegade patriots, spurred up a myriad of new platformers…male & female, white & black/brown – all youngish. It is wild and wonderful! It’s the wild west – best part: everyone is smart and they shelve their egos! hahhahahaaaaa

    The thing is, 30-35% of the staffed beds in Arizona, Nevada, and California are now occupied by COVID patients. Nevada appears to have hit a plateau but the other two continue to bound upward. The rate of increase in Arizona in the last several weeks (mean 1% per day) has been slower than the mean rate over the last three months or so (2% per day), but you still have no sense of where the apex is. In California, the rate of increase since September has been 1.7% per day; in the last three weeks it's been shy of 1.6%. The rest of the western states have hit the plateau and are improving, at least until the British variant arrives.

    I tried to figure out how much NetFlix costs in Japan and what the contract and cancellation terms were last month, since I’d like to see The Queen’s Gambit. Twenty minutes of poring through their website led me to give up. It’s like a smart phone plan or a GoDaddy domain: If you have to ask, before giving your credit card number, go away.

    Pre-coronavirus we would vacation in Karuizawa, and the entire town shuts down at 8:00 p.m., including restaurants. There are zillions of eateries, and they all shut down at 8:00. There’s only one exception, a small chain ramen/gyoza/chuuka place that is open late, and attracts a lot of male blue-collar night workers. Although the sleepy, early-to-bed nature of the town appeals to me, I always thought it would be nice counter-programming to have a restaurant that opens at 8:00 or 9:00 at night and stays open until 7:00 a.m. or so, something more interesting than the ramen joint. I’m sure there are financial reasons why such a restaurant wouldn’t work (money tends not to be left on the table, and there are no original ideas) but still …

    In the US anyway I haven't had or heard of issues with Netflix playing contract or billing games. And the plans here are HD vs SD and then increasing numbers of streams watching at the same time.

    It's good to be cautions, but can also end up being overly cautious...

    Well, in this case there's room for good two way exchange of information.

    We provide the info that it's WAY harder (which really in the west translates to "it's expensive") to run an anti-PC blog/zine, compared to what one might imagine compared to 5 or 10 years ago.

    In return i/we may find out about some new platforms / places to read.

    Substack seems definitely interesting, and i should look at it more, but they seem to reject "hate speech" so idk how far that would go for this kind of content given that the main claim of SWJs, BLM etc is that anyone who doesn't agree and participate enthusiastically in their movement is engaging in hate.
