Summary: Reviews recent news from London, Paris, Spain, and Mexico. Details the vaccine procedure and the resulting physiological effects, making distinctions between the real and fake smallpox cases.
Historical Notes: The late 18th century saw a growing interest in the distribution of books and pamphlets about health in Spanish America and in Spain. These booklets reflected the Spanish elite's agenda of establishing norms in public health and hospital care across their territories. The educational booklets also compensated for the potential lack of care in rural or remote areas. Rodríguez, Pablo. Historia que no cesa: LA INDEPENDENCIA DE COLOMBIA, 1780-1830. 1st ed.
