Research Facts
The No. 4 Canadian General Hospital was organized in Toronto on 25 March 1915 by the University of Toronto. Stationed at: Shorncliffe, 28 May - 15 October 1915; Salonika, Greece 9 Nov 1915 - 18 May 1916; Kalamaria 19 May 1916 - 17 Aug 1917; Basingstoke, 18 Sept 1917 - 2 July 1919. Officers Commanding: Colonels T. A. Roberts, W. A. Hendry, H. C. Parsons with Nursing Matron A. J. Hartley. General hospitals were originally equipped for 520 beds, but were increased in 1915 to 1,040 after which date they varied in bed capacity as necessary up to 2,000. In 1915 a large Allied expeditionary force landed at Thessalonik (Salonika) as the base for operations against pro-German Bulgaria. This culminated in the establismnet of the Macedonian or Salonika Front. Further information concerning the 20 hospitals stationed in Salonika during 1915-1919 can be found in the book "Under the Devil's Eye: The British Army in Salonika, 1915-1918" by Alan Wakefield and Simon Moody, published by Sutton. Further information can be found in the donor file.

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.
