Doctor Collins Jr was Vice Chancellor of the University of London (1907-1909 and 1911-1912) and member of the University Senate (1893-1927). He was also a member of the Royal Commission on Vaccination (1889-1896), a Member of Parliament for West St Pancras (1906-1910) and also held a few other public official positions.

I think this doctor must have heard plenty about the dangers of vaccines since his father was a public vaccinator for 20 years before renouncing the practice and publishing his reasons for doing so in two tracts called ‘Twenty Years Experience as a Public Vaccinator’

Dr Collins Jr was also outspoken, "I have no faith in vaccination; nay, I look upon it with the greatest possible disgust, and firmly believe that it is often the medium of conveying many filthy and loathsome diseases from one child to another, and no protection whatever against small pox. Indeed, I consider we are now living in the JENNERIAN epoch for the slaughter of innocents, and the unthinking portion of the adult population”53

"Last June, at the Public Vaccination Station at Norwich, nine children were vaccinated by the Public Vaccinator, and in less than three weeks four of them were dead, and the remaining five were labouring under more or less severe constitutional disease.

No fact, no circumstance, no experience supports the conclusion that were vaccination able to abolish small-pox, the death-rate would be lowered in the least, so long as insanitary conditions prevail. And, in fine, if sanitation prevailed, the very raison d'etre for vaccination, to say nothing of compulsion, would be everlastingly destroyed”54

"So that it would seem to be a just conclusion from the foregoing that vaccination is inoperative in the absence of sanitation and superfluous in its presence; that if you could put out one zymotic disease by vaccination, people would die at the same rate as before, unless you abolish all by universal sanitation”55

It’s interesting to note that Doctor Collins, after heading up the Royal Commission into Vaccination for seven years, declined to add his signature to the final report citing differing medical opinion that than set out in the report.
