Vaccine Epidemiology, Part One: A Brief History of Vaccines

January 9, 2019 Rene F. Najera

I've decided to create and share with you a series of short explainer videos (about 20 minutes each) on the epidemiology of vaccines. Epidemiology is the study of diseases, conditions and other events that affect human populations. In this first video, I give you a very brief history of vaccines. Of course, you can find more great history on this site, but here is just a quick synopsis of Edward Jenner's work back in the 1700s, Louis Pasteur's work in the 1800s, and the modern work done on vaccine science in the 20th century.
