 In 1805 and 1878, the cow-pox was brought for the first time to the
Philippines and the Marianas, being followed in both cases by a widespread
inoculation campaign led by the colonial authorities. This was an odd
singularity for the metropolitan territories, where during the nineteenth
century the state had played a minor role in public vaccination policies.
The objective of this lecture is to discuss why the colonial state
participated actively in the vaccination of both archipelagos.
Understanding this would allow us to rethink the conditions of the
Philippines and the Marianas, in 1805 and 1878, respectively, not only as
peripheral imperial territories, but also as places where colonial
governments, with wide and unrestricted power, could implement their
policies with the same or even more efficacy than in the metropolis itself.

*About the author*

Sandro Jiménez Mínguez graduated with a degree in History from the
University of Salamanca (Spain). In 2009 he started his post-graduate
career with a Master in History: “Europa, el Mundo Mediterráneo y su
Proyección Atlántica” at the University of Pablo Olavide (Seville, Spain).
He works at the Social and Human Sciences Centre, in the Spanish National
Research Council (SHCC, SNRC) with a Research Professional Training Grant.
He is interested in the development of public health policies in the
Philippines during the late nineteenth century; the participation of the
Philippine society in the colonial administration; and the social and
political impact of these policies on local societies. Currently a Visiting
Research Associate of the Institute of Philippine Culture, he is doing a
research on the sanitary order of the Spanish Colonial Philippines.
