Answer:
A comic that was trying to depict the prevailing sentiment against Edward Jenner’s smallpox vaccine (inoculating people with the Cowpox virus, hence the cows in the image).

    Jenner used cowpox to vaccinate people against smallpox. The strip is about people fearing the sprout of cowlike appendages as a result of using cowpox to protect against smallpox.

    Edward Jenner had created a vaccine for smallpox. He also tried to create a vaccine for Cowpox. this is a cartoon ridiculing his method of inoculating people with the cowpox germs.

    “The Cow-Pock or the wonderful effects of the new inoculation” In this cartoon from 1802, the British satirist James Gillray implied that vaccination for smallpox with cowpox caused people to become part cow, becoming the first anti-vaxxer.

    In this cartoon, the British satirist James Gillray caricatured a scene at the Smallpox and Inoculation Hospital at St. Pancras, showing Edward Jenner administering cowpox vaccine to frightened young women, and cows emerging from different parts of people’s bodies. The cartoon was inspired by the controversy over inoculating against the dreaded disease, smallpox. The inoculation agent, cowpox vaccine, was rumored to have the ability to sprout cow-like appendages. A serene Edward Jenner stands amid the crowd. A boy next to Jenner holds a container labeled “VACCINE POCK hot from ye COW”; papers in the boy’s pocket are labeled “Benefits of the Vaccine”. The tub on the desk next to Jenner is labeled “OPENING MIXTURE”. A bottle next to the tub is labeled “VOMIT”. The painting on the wall depicts worshippers of the Golden Calf.
