Often referred to as the speckled monster, the smallpox disease originated in the new world when Spanish and Portuguese conquistadors and early english settlers arrived in the americas. Although there had been attempts to cure the disease, including variolation, (that came from asia 2,000 years ago), they all had a high risk of death. It wasn’t until 1796, when Edward Jenner, a english paleontologist came up with a new form of vaccine, it was called inoculation. The disease decimated the local population and was instrumental in the fall of the empires of the Aztecs and the Incas.

In the 18th century, it had an astonishing mortality rate of 90% in the United States. Also, in the year 1966, it was estimated that 10-15 million citizens had died altogether. Smallpox was finally proclaimed eradicated in 1980. Nowadays, only government laboratories in the United States and Russia contains fragments of the virus for research purposes. However, if used as a biological warfare agent, it is a immense threat to humanity and civilization because of its case-fatality of more than 30%.
Vaccines have come a long way from the barbaric variolation treatments for smallpox in the 15th century CE in China. Treatment for smallpox remained the same until Edward Jenner developed the first vaccination for smallpox in 1796. Nations began issuing laws to force people into vaccinations. England began the first vaccination act in 1840 and the United States court rulings date back to the 1900s when compulsory vaccination for smallpox outweighed the individual right to privacy. This common good approach drew vociferous protests and the anti-vaccination movement emerged (Stern & Markel, 2005).
Strains of smallpox should be eliminated and here is why. The resurgence of infectious diseases has been a huge problem in the 21st century. Imagine what the world would look like with the return of one of the globes most brutal disease; A disease like smallpox that could spread so easily through the air. Smallpox had both a high prevalence and incidence rate in the United States and many other parts of the world.
