Whilst 'anti-vax' is a relatively new term, anti-vaccine groups have been around since the first vaccines were developed in the early 1800s. They still used some of the same arguments that modern 'anti-vaxers' use, such as that it "violated their personal liberties". Here's the article: https://www.historyofvaccines.org/co...tion-movements

I didn't use it before therefore it fulfils the criteria of the thread.

Paying people not to come to work was really a thing before the pandemic

To be fair its a challenging thread, and if you can't immediately meet it challenge its tempting to say something obtuse

Can you give details?
Another example is in The Patriot, Colonials are offered furlough for enlisting, but most people were not familiar with the word.

actually Furlough has been used for years in the US, but had actually gone extinct in the UK - it was only used back in the days of WWII
