Research Facts
Triogen was later combined with the Salk polio vaccine to make Quadrigen, which proved to be toxic after experiencing temperature changes. The pertussis vaccine alone, as well as combined with those for diphtheria and tetanus, has long been controversial, and there have been cases in which it has allegedly made children very sick or caused their death.

Research Facts
During the year 1804, the vaccine inoculation was introduced into France, and schools were instituted for the instruction and practice of the art. This medal was struck to commemorate the establishment of the society for the extermination of the small-pox by vaccination. This medal was apparently intended as a personal commemorative with the space on the reverse left for the individual vaccinated to inscribe their name.
