Caption: Edward Jenner (1749-1823), British physician. Montage of images of the life and work of Jenner, showing him vaccinating his young child, who is held by his wife. He is also shown vaccinating the poor and others. Jenner coined the word vaccination to describe his pioneering use of cowpox inoculation to obtain immunity to smallpox. Folk tales from his native Gloucestershire suggested that dairy workers who had contracted the milder cowpox did not contract the deadlier small pox. Jenner experimented on a small boy by inoculating him with fluid obtained from the blister of a patient with cowpox. He repeated his experiments and in 1798 published his results. The practice of vaccinating against smallpox quickly spread.
