Research Facts
After the outbreak of the War of 1812, the Loyal and Patriotic Society of Upper Canada was founded. In 1817, it had gold and silver medals struck in England to be distributed to the militia. Difficulty arose in selecting those to receive the medals. Also, controversy developed over the right of anyone other than the Sovereign to confer medals for military service. As a result, the medals were deposited in the Bank of Upper Canada and never awarded. They were melted down, and the sale of the metal added to the funding for the building of York-- now Toronto-- General Hospital.

Research Facts
In using the device, the forefinger is passed into the ring and the thumb pressed upon the lever, by which the perforator is raised, and upon reaching a point is deployed by the force of a spring, and, slightly puncturing the skin deposits the virus. Thus, in a single, easy motion, a vaccination is performed. “The pain attending its use is so slight, as rarely to awaken a sleeping child, while the operation is rendered much more certain than by other methods.”
At the time Whittemore’s vaccinator was available, just smallpox had a vaccine, with rubella, measles, mumps, polio and other dreaded diseases still running unchecked.
The tip of the vaccinator is a hollow tube for holding the vaccine or serum. It is activated by a lever on the top, which both cocks and releases the blade. These are often mistaken for bleeders.
