This biography of the disease addresses Keats on pp. 78-82 (unfortunately under the myth-supporting title "Delicate Males"...), recounting his family experiences with TB, his medical training, and his own terrible death.

Thanks for the link- might see if it is in the library. I'm so glad i had the immunisation aged 13.
