Louis Pasteur

The historic character I chose to introduce is Louis Pasteur. I think he is like a hero because he saved many lives with his vaccination. Louis Pasteur was born in 1822 and died in 1895. He was a great French scientist who discoved germs and the vaccination against rabies. The 6th July 1885 was the first time that a human was vaccinated. He was a young fourteen years old boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Before the vaccination was only tested on animals and Pasteur hesitated a long time before accepted to vaccinate the teenager. The young boy was saved and after that people came from everywhere to see Pasteur and receive the vaccine which saved life. Louis Pasteur changed many lives and saved many people and animals. His discovery eliminated rabies which was killing a lot of people since forever. He’s a hero!
