This chapter focuses on events in the early nineteenth century, following the decline in smallpox infections. The medical profession shifted its efforts towards the promotion of vaccination over variolation among the lower classes. The lack of political support for vaccination is also considered. Within a few years there was a resurgence of smallpox, which led to a corresponding revival of variolation.
