The Vaccinators
Stanford University Press

Dutch merchants stationed on Dejima in Nagasaki for many years permitted greater interaction between the Dutch and Japanese. The Dutch connection at Nagasaki was the main source of scientific information from the West. This chapter presents a clear picture of the Dutch connection between Batavia and Nagasaki. It documents numerous attempts by the Dutch to introduce Jennerian vaccination to Japan, and shows the close collaboration that developed between Japanese physicians and the Dutch Factory doctors stationed at Dejima. The chapter demonstrates the importance of the Dutch presence in Japan as a catalyst in the opening of Japan to Western knowledge.
