Description

Edward Jenner is considered the founder of vaccinology in the West in 1796, after he inoculated a 13 year-old-boy with a vaccine virus (cowpox), and demonstrated immunity to smallpox. In 1798, the first smallpox vaccine was developed. Over the 18th and 19th centuries, systematic implementation of mass smallpox immunization culminated in its global eradication in 1979.

Although the vaccination has been used for more than a century, the question is still ambiguous. There are many prejudices and myths about it.

Let's try to sort it out in our case-lesson by referring to such subjects as chemistry, anatomy, history, health, and psychology.

You will also practice such skills as the ability to learn, critical thinking, analytical thinking, the ability to concentrate, communication, argumentation, healthy lifestyle and others.
