Learn Basic Vaccine Immunology

All you need to know about the basics of vaccine types and immunization with a focus on vaccine development examples.

Vaccines are an important part of family and public health. They prevent the spread of contagious, dangerous, and deadly diseases. These include measles, polio, mumps, chicken pox, whooping cough, diphtheria, and HPV. With the current pandemic and the rise of SARS-COV-2 that has devastated millions of people worldwide… finding a vaccine against infectious diseases has now become more important than ever.
