- Edward Jenner was the pioneer of the smallpox vaccine, which was the world's first vaccine. Jenner noticed that milkmaids were often immune to smallpox and deduced that they had built a resisitance to the diease due to their exposure to cowpox. Jenner developed a vaccine, named from the Latin word for cow, vacca, which he tested in 1796 by scraping pus from cowpox sores onto a patient, eight year old James Phipps' skin. Phipps was then found to be immune from smallpox thanks to Jenner's efforts.
