Edward Jenner, who was born in Gloucestershire, pioneered the use of vaccines, creating the world's first in his work treating smallpox.
Marking the 200th anniversary of his death, chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty, discusses Jenner's incredible legacy in a special lecture at Gloucester Cathedral on Thursday 26 January 2023.
Exploring the wider impact that vaccines have had on global health using examples from the last two centuries, the lecture is aimed at those with a keen interest in healthcare, medicine and science, but is open to all - with The Reverend Steve Godsell, priest in charge at Berkeley Benefice, acting as compere.
Tickets to the lecture are free, but must be pre-booked online in advance.
