" World Health Organization. N.p., June 2007. Web. 3 Nov. 2012. <http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/85/6/06-031526/en/>. This article was a gave me a deep insight into the current world health status in developing countries. It helped to show me the effect of the vaccine on world health and relate it to Edward Jenner's study. I used this article to show the challenges that are arising in todays society that can be affected by vaccines.

Jenner, Edward. "Continuation of Facts and Observations Relative to the Variolae Vaccinae (or Cow-pox.)." 1798. Fordham University Center for Medieval Studies. The Internet Medieval Source =book. Web. 31 Nov. 2012. <http://www.fordham.edu/Halsall/mod/1798jenner-vacc.asp#Further%20Observations %20on%20the%20Variolae%20Vaccinae,%20or%20Cow-pox.>. This was a great exhibit of Jenners findings. In this primary source it described the implications of his Vaccine, but also the ramifications it had on the people who were treated with it. It was a great example of what he considered unacceptable, but also what peoples worries were back in that time period. It was a great glimpse of the past.

This source allowed me to see further into his investigation on the effects of the Smallpox Vaccine at the time. It illustrates how much the vaccine changed peoples lives, and what a difference it mad in the community. People were now healthier, and could attend to more important matters of theirs without worrying about sickness. I used this in my project to illustrate the effect it had on peoples lives.

Jenner, Edward. "An Inquiry into the Causes and Effects of the Variolae Vaccinae (or Cow-Pox. 1798)." 1798. Fordham University Center for Medieval Studies. The Internet Medieval Sourcebook. Web. 30 Nov. 2012. <http://www.fordham.edu/Halsall/mod/1798jennervacc.asp#Further%20Observations%20on%20the%20Variolae%20Vaccinae,%20or %20Cow-pox.>. This source was beneficial because it was a typed copy of Jenner's first publications on the Smallpox Vaccine. It was a great example of the time period because it described certain people's predicaments. I used these findings in my project by showing how Jenner's Vaccine had an effect on people, and how people were in such a great need for solutions like his.

Jenner, Edward. "To C.H. Parry, M.D. at Bath." Letter to C. H. Parry. 21 June 1798. Fordham University Center for Medieval Studies. The Internet Medieval Sourcebook. Web. 31 Nov. 2012. <http://www.fordham.edu/Halsall/mod/1798jenner-vacc.asp#Further %20Observations%20on%20the%20Variolae%20Vaccinae,%20or%20Cow-pox.>. This letter was great at showing me the vernacular of the time period. It also gave me a better understanding to why Jenner performed the experiment. I used this in my website by quoting it, but also I used it to show the implications of what he had done. This was not an experiment he kept to himself, this was an experiment he felt could help humanity which is why he sent it to his friend C.H. Parry.

It helped to show how much vaccines have and are affecting world health. This report showed how much preventive medicine is needed for a current civil society.
