Indian Public Health Chart: Small Pox. Vintage Medical Poster. This vintage poster is from before smallpox was eradicated, and please thank science because that is not something you want to ever experience! After vaccination campaigns throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the WHO certified the global eradication of smallpox in 1980.

Whether you're active in the fields of public health, medicine, social work or have a special place in your heart for India, be the very first to have a vintage educational poster we imported right to our shop in Detroit! Echoing folk art and kitsch, these charts are found throughout India and highlight just about any subject you can think of.
