Vaccination has a long and pretty successful history. The Chinese were doing a form of it in the 10th century. In the late 1800s it had become common practice in England.

Congratulations to all recent graduates, and if this is you and you’re also reading this, congratulations for continuing to read Salient and having refined literary taste.
