Jacobson vs. Massachusetts
In 1905 Jacobson vs. Massachusetts allowed for compulsory vaccination of the public based on a true public health emergency; however, it allowed people to “opt out” and pay a small fine. This was radically different than today as this ruling was only about ONE vaccine (smallpox), not 70+ doses.
Jacobson was never denied employment and his child was never denied an education. This precedent predates doctrines of informed consent. History shows that more people died from the smallpox vaccine, than from smallpox, but this court ruling was never overturned.
