Vaccination shields, like this one with a metal guard and fabric ties used on D.S. Giles, protected the sore skin some had after being vaccinated against smallpox from infection. They were mainly used on children, like Giles' experience when he was immunised as a small boy, and were tied above the shoulder and under the arm.
