After 48 hours, as Pasteur said, the 25 sheep without the vaccine died and the 25 with the vaccine were left unharmed. Joseph Lister came all the way from England to congratulate Pasteur on his incredible discovery.
In 1881 Paris, Pasteur decided to start researching a cure for rabies. During his experiments, a French doctor, Charbonnet injected himself with the rabies virus to prove that Pasteur's research was wrong and he could live a normal life with the injection inside of him. Charbonnet was able to live a normal life, but only due to the fact that the injection was too old to have an impact.
Later, a boy, his mom, and his doctor traveled to see Pasteur because the boy was bitten by a dog with rabies. Pasteur gave the boy the vaccine without testing it before hoping it would work. He was given multiple injections when the Russians came to Pasteur's home looking for the rabies vaccine.
During Pasteur's intense research with his Rabies vaccine, his daughter was having a baby boy and made Dr. Charbonnet wash his hands and use his sterilization techniques.
Pasteur hadn't slept for two days and later had a stroke that put him in a coma for 10 days. After waking up from his coma, this didn't stop him from treating the Russians. Back at Pasteur's home, the boy kept receiving injections and was cured.
After dealing with the Russians, Pasteur was invited to come to a meeting that had to do with his scientific research. He received an award for his discoveries with microbes and Lister gave a speech showing appreciation towards him.
