Give Edward Jenner the Recognition he Deserves - Reinstate his Statue to Trafalgar Square
We, the undersigned, petition the UK Prime Minister to restore Edward Jenner's Statue to Trafalgar Square to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Eradication of Smallpox in 2010. Edward Jenner (1749-1823), the man who changed the world, saved more lives than anyone else in history by pioneering vaccination (against Smallpox) in 1796.
His statue, currently in Kensington Gardens, used to be in Trafalgar Square and should be returned there to mark the 30th Anniversary of the worldwide eradication of smallpox. It is time for one of our great national (and international) heroes to finally be celebrated.

The Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley, Gloucestershire, UK, promotes the life and legacy of Edward Jenner (1749-1823). The museum is an independent charity very dependant on individual support. 2010 marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of the museum in it's present location. Your interest and involvement will ensure Jenner's crucial contribution to medical science and birth of immunology will not be forgotten. Thank you.
