Medal commemorating the discovery of vaccination in 1796. Edward Jenner (1749-1823) practiced as a country doctor in his native Gloucestershire. He noted the immunity to smallpox given by cow-pox. In 1796 he vaccinated James Phipps a number of times with pus from cow-pox pustules on a dairy maid. He then inoculated him with smallpox. The boy was ill for a few days, then recovered.

Claude Bernard, French physiologist. From the obverse of a commemorative medal. Bernard (1813-1878) investigated the liver, discovering glycogen, and determined that most of the process of digestion occurs in the small intestine, rather that the stomach. He showed that haemoglobin carries oxygen in red blood cells, and demonstated how carbon monoxide poisoning disrupted this process. When Bernard died in 1878, the French government organised his funeral, making him the first French scientist to be honoured in this way.
