Edward Jenner

Benefits of Jenner's ContributionAfter Jenner's discovery and contribution, the medical science has become more advance. His conclusion was supported by older knoledge and study of germs and viruses. Jenner's discovery of vaccination has causes the eradication of smallpox disease. To put in other words, Jenner have saved many lifes of the human species.

Before Edward Jenner's contribution, smallpox was known as one of the deadly disease that was greatly feared by many citizens in 1700’s. Not only it is deadly, but also very contagious. This particular disease have already taken millions of life in the late 1700’s including the members of the royalty of England. Once you caught it, there’s nothing else that can be done but pray for peace in their grave. At first, after Jenner made his claim that getting infected by cowpox can cure smallpox, he wrote down his observations. In 1797, his report that was sent to the Royal Society got rejected. Later in 1798, Jenner published a small booklet titled "An Inquiry into the Causes and Effects of the Variolae Vaccinae, a disease discovered in some of the western counties of England, particularly Gloucestershire and Known by the Name of Cow Pox" which includes his observations and new procedure which he called "vaccination". In 1799, Jenner conducted a nationwide survery to prove his theory about the cure of smallpox. Then, the use of vaccination spread out to most of the part in Europe. Years later, many scientists, doctors and patients request for the vaccine. Jenner suddenly received a worldwide recognition and honors.

When Jenner was the age of 34, the American Revolutionary War had come to an end after a total of 8 years of fighting against the British. The American Revolutionary War, also known as the war of independence occurred between Americans against the British. This was a major event because America stopped being influenced by the British political ideas and won the freedom against the extraordinary military force in its period of time.

Jenner's ContributionBecause of Jenner’s great accomplishment throughout his life, I think that he should be recognized and appreciated by the modern human generation. He is the father or immunology, the guy who invented vaccines, the guy who created a solution for one of the deadliest, most feared disease it its time. He was the first scientist to attempt controlling infectious diseases. Although he is known for his contribution in medical, he had other contributions due to his major interest in the field of science. In my opinion, I think that learning about Jenner and his contributions is important because he is one of the most influential person in the scientific revolution, and saved the human race.

Edward Jenner was not the first to discover vaccination. However, he was the first one to scientifically prove that the vaccination is a cure to smallpox.In the garden of Chantry House, Jenner build a hut called “Temple of Vaccinia”. There, he would vaccinate and treat the poor for free. After the death of his family members, he withdrew from socializing and public life.
