Traveling Through History

Edward Jenner/ Mesopotamia

Edward Jenner

According to Fulton and Kettering at a small age Edward Jenner was immunized and suffered terribly, vowing to eradicate the smallpox disease completely so, he started studying in London under a renowned surgeon John Hunter at St George's Hospital. Before they even created the vaccine. They used a smallpox material from under the skin of an unaffected person. Many people that were treated by the smallpox material that were very healthy soon developed full blown smallpox and those who did not die from the smallpox disease may suffer from complications such as blindness, pneumonia, and kidney damage which jump started the path of the invention of the first smallpox vaccine. It is the first successful vaccine to be developed. Edward Jenner followed up his observation that milkmaids who had previously caught cowpox did not later catch smallpox by showing that inoculated cowpox protected against inoculated smallpox.

First Vaccine:Smallpox

The process of administering a vaccine is called a vaccination. The first vaccine was discovered In 1796. Smallpox was responsible for the deaths of Queen Mary, Emperor Joseph, King Louis XV, Tsar Peter, Queen Ulrika Elenora. Even though, the vaccine was very effective it was not used consistently by the 1950's 50 million cases of smallpox still occurred worldwide each year. By 1967 the World Health Organization was showing effect towards the disease causing it to drop approximately to 10 to 15 million cases annually around the world and, by 1971 the western hemisphere was eradicated of smallpox.

There are three things that matter to the mesopotamian culture such as their script, gods and their attitude towards women. It's also known for the Biblical Garden of Eden.
