There is a history of smallpox inoculation that goes back as far as 1000 AD in China, Africa, and Turkey. However, the person credited with creating the first vaccine is Edward Jenner, an English scientist who pioneered one for smallpox in 1796. His breakthrough came from taking pus from a blister of someone infected with cowpox and using it to inoculate another person, thus preventing smallpox in that person. He developed this treatment after hypothesizing that dairy workers were rarely, if ever, infected with the deadly smallpox virus because most of them were already infected with cowpox, which has a very mild effect on humans.

Edward Jenner (often referred to as The Father of Modern 'Vaccination') has been called a Doctor and a Scientist. He was neither. He had no medical training but hung a sign outside his place claiming to be an MD. Further, after hearing of the work of many others, he performed a single trial using the pus from a pox and as the boy (who became ill but) did not get sick from the Pox, declared that his 'experiment' was a success. That is akin to you walking across a street and not being hit by a car and deciding that you are immune to death by vehicle. He observed a number of people who were later inoculated and judged that their cases of Smallpox were 'less severe' and once again declared his ideas to be well-founded. In the early 1900s when the US took over The Philippines, there was a forced campaign to vaccinate the people. A large amount of the population had been previously vaccinated. There were a million cases of Smallpox reported after the campaign began. The rate of disease was 5 times higher than if you slept in a bed with someone who had Smallpox. There areas that had the highest infection percentages, were there areas where the highest percentage of people 'protected' by the vaccine. And conversely, the area in which no one was vaccinated (as the Mayor of the village forbade it) there was not a single case. In comparison, the flu vaccines of today have been shown to provide no real protection from the flu, and temporary as well as some lifelong health problems.

Smallpox vaccine, the first successful vaccine to be developed, was introduced by Edward Jenner in 1796. He followed up his observation that milkmaids who had previously caught cowpox did not later catch smallpox by showing that inoculated cowpox protected against inoculated smallpox.Edward Jenner invented a method to protect against smallpox in 1796. The method involved taking material from a blister of someone infected with cowpox and inoculating it into another person's skin; this was called arm-to-arm inoculation.

First of all, Vaccines were an answer to over population. During WW11, the President was given a report stating that there were to many people on this planet and there needed to be some way to end this problem. I wish I remembered the man's name, but he was an trusted aid to President Eisenhower( later President Eisenhower realized who this aid was, and never spoke to him again). The plan was to take out minorities at first, but it would be to recognizable, so the plan was to get other countries involved, by forcing them to have Vaccine Programs in their country, with financial aid, or if they refused, USA would come in and start wars and take out a bigger population and destroy cities. So my guess would be Americans or Nazis we shipped over here after WW11.
