Smallpox was a devastating disease described as the scourge of the world.

The Variola virus was responsible for countless deaths from antiquity to the twentieth century and left most survivors with lifelong scars.

Using Variolation, a primitive form of vaccination, our ancestors attempted to blunt the full force of Smallpox infections.

However, it wasn’t until the twentieth century and using modern day vaccination techniques that we were able to achieve a monumental milestone and eradicate this disease.
