The Promotion of Vaccination to Chiropractors


Vaccination is a deliberate attempt to protect humans against disease and while there are some who suggest such methods began with the Hindus in 1000 B.C. it was Edward Jenner's work with cowpox vaccination in the 1790's that is recognised as the first attempt to control an infectious disease by a deliberate inoculation.(1) Jenner's intention was to prevent smallpox by injecting material from a cowpox lesion thereby inducing a protective response to smallpox. His success and the deliberate public health measures that followed eventually led in 1977 to the effective eradication of smallpox from the planet.(2)
