Edward Jenner was a country doctor. He was born in 1749. He studied 八年级英语试卷 第 6 页（共 11 页）
medicine in London and then returned to work as a doctor in his hometown. One day, he made an important discovery. He found a way to stop people catching smallpox, a terrible illness. People with smallpox often died. A lot of the patients Jenner looked after were farmers and their families. Jenner noticed a strange thing—the girls didn’t get smallpox when they looked after cows. They caught a different, less serious illness. Jenner knew that the farmers sometimes tried to give this less serious illness to their family. They hoped that this would stop them from catching smallpox.
Jenner developed this idea by doing an experiment with a farmer’s son. He cut the boy’s arm and gave him the less serious illness. He hoped it would protect the boy from smallpox. Jenner and the boy were both very brave because they did not know what would happen. There was a danger that the boy would become very ill, and even die. Fortunately, Jenner’s experiment was successful. The government asked other doctors to use the same treatment. Thanks to Jenner, no one gets smallpox today.
