Still Celebrating:

On July 6, 1885, Louis Pasteur gave the first rabies innoculation to a boy who had been bitten by a rabid dog. The boy survived. I found one site on line, however, that insists that the dog did, too, which indicates that the dog wasn't rabid after all. And was it really the first rabies innoculation or was it the first that old Louis wanted to talk about? I have had serious questions about these early researchers ever since I found out about Edward Jenner.
