Interactive Timeline – History of Vaccines

My students are currently working on a research project and one just introduced me to a very cool source, an interactive timeline courtesy of the History of Vaccines. The timeline presents information on the history of disease, treatment, and prevention over the course of its medical history. You can explore key individuals, such as Louis Pasteur, or science’s impact on society and civilization.

Explore the timeline by visiting the website the History of Vaccines.
