This volume examines the speed at which Edward Jenner's technique of smallpox 'vaccination' was taken up, culminating in the 'Compulsory Vaccination Act of 1853'. The Act remained in force until 1946 despite pressure from the National Anti-vaccination League, but the issues raised by this book remain current today.
