    Please be advised that the 1954 vaccinations were a trial study where over 600,00 children were inoculated with either the Salk vaccine OR placebo. This was a double-blind study where neither physician nor patient knew whether the injection was a placebo or vaccine. It was not until April 12, 1955 that the Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine, having passed large-scale trials earlier in the United States received full approval by the US Food and Drug Administration.
