Black-and-white etched satire on attitudes toward vaccination. Edward Jenner, pioneer of the smallpox vaccine, is portrayed as a Jew. He holds a syringe labelled "Kuhpocken" (cowpox) and "Humanität" (humanity). Next to him sits a Jewish elder who has one foot on a money bag. Another Jew reads from a document labeled "Für Die Juden" (for the Jews), handed to him on a cushion embroidered with a Star of David by a non-Jewish man astride a sow. He is followed by a rabbi praying and another Jew. At left, a non-Jewish woman holds the sow's rope in one hand and, in the other, a paper labeled "Freiden Mädchen - Berliner Blätter" (prostitute - Berlin Gazette). The etching indicates that the publication of Jenner's work is a Jewish conspiracy.
