Vaccination, Veterinary Science, Medical Practitioners, Disease, Accidents
Discusses a letter in The Times which describes how a veterinary inspector in Uxbridge became accidentally infected with the vaccine he was using to arrest cattle plague in a bullock. Challenges the efficacy of vaccination by contesting the claim that cattle plague is smallpox. Argues that the plague is more likely to be a form of cowpox and thus advises inoculation.
