Figure 6-5

A primary vaccination response on the ninth day after inoculation shows erythema surrounding a pustular lesion. Although the picture is from a colored drawing made by Captain C. Gold in 1801, the lesion shown is indistinguishable from contemporary responses to primary vaccination. (Courtesy of the Library, London, Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine.)
