Many doctors flatly refused to believe Jenner when he announced that he had found a preventive against smallpox. They declared vaccination to be a dangerous practice. But the dread of smallpox was in everybody’s heart, and people flocked to Jenner to be vaccinated. TheLatin word for cow is ‘vacca’; it is the root from which theword vaccination was formed. Some of the ‘vacca’ used by Jenner were not pure and some harms were done; but when supplies of pure vaccine were available, the practiceof vaccinating spread all over England and from Englandto other countries. We hardly hear of outbreaks of smallpox now.
