We at The History of Vaccines love . They help explain historical events in a way that is a little more entertaining than a boring list of important dates. Below is a small project started before the pandemic that I only now got around to finishing. It is the story of the Balmis Expedition, an expedition by Spanish physicians and their team to take the newly developed smallpox vaccine to the Spanish colonies in the Americas and Asia. I hope you enjoy it.
