The value of such protective inoculations is demonstrated in the treatment against small-pox (Jenner), cholera, plague (Haffkine) and typhoid (Wright and Semple).
More important in their results than any of these works were the discoveries of Edward Jenner, respecting the prevention of small-pox by vaccination, in which he superseded the partially useful but dangerous practice of inoculation, which.
They are sufficiently evidenced by the fact that Edward Jenner and Matthew Baillie were his pupils.

In the forefront of the new movement are to be found men like Yoneharu Unkai and Shinkai Taketaro; the former chiselled a figure of Jenner for the Medical Association of Japan when they celebrated the centenary of the great physician, and the latter has carved life-size effigies of two Imperial princes who lost their lives in the war with China (1894 95).
Berkeley was the birthplace of Dr Edward Jenner (1749), who is buried in the church.

Enter Edward Jenner, a physician in Berkeley, Gloucestershire.
Jenner had frequently performed variolations on patients.
When Jenner did variolations on milkmaids who had had cowpox, they never came down with smallpox.
Jenner reasoned that the pox contracted by dairymaids could be used to impart immunity to others.
James caught the cowpox, recovered, and then Jenner variolated him.
Thanks to Jenner, Nelmes, Blossom, and Phipps (which sounds like a rather odd law firm), today we have the word "vaccine."
And Jenner had created this vaccine for smallpox without even understanding the basics of germ theory!
Second: When they successfully fought these diseases, Salk and Jenner didn't have anything like the technology and knowledge that are available today, even to an undergraduate.
(The use of such practices continued into the scientific age: While Jenner was inoculating people with his new smallpox vaccine, doctors were draining half a gallon of blood from George Washington for his sore throat, a procedure that hastened his death.
Imagine being Jenner and not even knowing you were dealing with microbes.
If Jenner had had e-mail, Pasteur an electron microscope, Salk a genetic sequencer.
