Description
Grateful that no one gets smallpox anymore.



Dr. D.A. Henderson,"led the international effort that eradicated smallpox in 1977"
"The global eradication of smallpox was certified in December 1979...marking one of the most successful collaborative public health initiatives in history."


"Smallpox was clearly the most serious infectious disease that mankind has endured over history... By some estimates, the virus killed more people than every other infectious disease combined, and more than triple the number killed in every war in the 20th century."
