Storyboard Text

  • Edward Jenner wanted to trial his hypothesis based on countryside folklore, that milkmaids never contracted smallpox.
  • In 1796, Jenner experiments on 8 year old James Phipps. He takes pus from a cowpox pustule, makes a cut in James's arm and inserts the liquid. 
  • James contracts cowpox, and then recovers, only suffering a light fever for a few days.
  • A few weeks after recovery, Jenner gives James smallpox using the same previous method.
  • James remains healthy and does not contract smallpox.
  • Jenner names this procedure "vaccine", coming from the latin word for cow, "vacca".
