Spratley’s Vaccination Lancet

4.99


During 1778 Dr. Edward Jenner of England discovered the cowpox virus to be a smallpox virus preventative without the dangers imposed by collection from a pox pustule.  By the 1970’s, smallpox was so well controlled that vaccination was reserved for individuals visiting or in endemic areas. Smallpox was the first disease to yield to a vaccine.
