Did the British Red Cross support smallpox vaccinations?
In 1919, the British Red Cross began its peacetime role and added the improvement of health and the prevention of disease to its objectives. The organisation has a long history of supporting the NHS with various health and social care services, including vaccination programmes. Following smallpox outbreaks in 1950 in Glasgow and Sussex, British Red Cross volunteers assisted in clinics and mass vaccination centres.
