Jenner became a doctor in Berkeley in 1773 and on 14 May 1796 he inoculated eight-year-old James Phipps with cowpox from dairymaid, Sarah Nelmes and on 1 July Jenner inoculated the boy with smallpox matter, but James did not develop the disease, through this experiment he was able to develop a successful vaccine. In 1798 Jenner published the results of his research in the book “An Inquiry into the Causes and Effects of the Variolae Vaccine”. For his work, he received honorary degrees and commendations including a special medal from France, gift of a ring from the Empress of Russia, and a certificate of gratitude from North American Indian Chiefs.
