Storyboard Text

  • Hey, look! That milkmaid is back! I feel a bit bad for giving her cowpox
  • Well, at least she won’t get smallpox.
  • Ok, now I don't feel so bad
  • There's a local scientist, asking everyone if they have had cowpox or if they know of anyone who has it now.
  • I know Blossom's milker, Sarah, has just come out in blisters
  • Before the smallpox vaccine was discovered up to 10% of country dwellers, and 20% of town, died from smallpox. Survivors were left badly scarred for life, with some blinded as a result. There is still no cure.
  • Other scientists had experimented with cowpox vaccinations against smallpox, but it wasn't until Dr Edward Jenner published his research that people understood the process.
