Vaccination Investigation: The History and Science of Vaccines

A century ago, the number one killer of children in the United States was infectious disease. Thanks to the development of vaccines, smallpox has been eliminated worldwide, and polio has disappeared from the United States and other countries. Throughout the world, people are living longer, healthier lives because of vaccines for measles, malaria, pneumonia, meningitis, and many other infections. Yet humans have not conquered every infectious disease, and new ones are always appearing. And medical officials have another obstacle: public misunderstanding and resistance to vaccines. Learn more about the history and success rate of vaccines as well as their limitations, explore the challenges the medical community faces, and discover what vaccines are currently in development.
