For thousands of years, people tried to fight against devastating epidemics that killed millions of people and spared no one – neither young nor old nor rich nor poor. Diseases such as cholera, plague, smallpox destroyed cities, villages and sometimes even whole countries. An article presents an overview of the history of the vaccination, an approach that allowed liberating humanity from dying of smallpox, plague and other deadliest diseases.
