This is great. The College of Physicians of Philadelphia has launched a site on The History of Vaccines. I’ve been poking around, and there’s an incredible amount of stuff to check out. They have a nice FAQ, Top 20 questions about vaccination, as well as some great activities (herd immunity! learn about Koch’s postulates! understand the relative risk of vaccination versus other events!) and a metric fuckton of articles and images. Looks to be a fantastic resource for students, and for anyone interested in understanding vaccination.

    Pity it’s all in flash. Will have to save it for when I get home.

  5. With global warming and the upheavals that it will bring with storms, droughts, famines, and consequent wars, do you think we’ve lost the chance to eradicate measles?
