Abstract

The term vaccination was originally used to designate the introduction of material from pustules of cows affected with cowpox into the human being to protect against smallpox. Such produced a mild form of the disease and conferred immunity to the more severe type as represented by smallpox proper. The vaccine represents, then, a weakened or attenuated form of the virus. The term, as now used, applies to the virus of any infectious disease, —the virulence of which virus has been diminished.
