Adults account for 95 percent of individuals who die from vaccine-preventable diseases (The weak link: adult immunisations. Adults account for 95% of individuals who die from vaccine-preventable diseases.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Adults account for 95 percent of individuals who die from vaccine-preventable diseases. Yet vaccination rates among adults remain “very low”. The latest feature film from Chain of Protection discusses the importance and need for adult immunisation in the fight against preventable infectious diseases.

World Immunization Week, April 2013: news, campaign materials, technical resources.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Immunization averts an estimated 2-3 million deaths every year, providing protection from diphtheria, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), pneumonia, polio, rotavirus diarrhoea, rubella and tetanus. Yet, an estimated 22 million infants are not fully immunized with routine vaccines. There is an urgent need to better communicate the health benefits of vaccination and the dangers of not immunizing children.

The Science of Immunisation: questions and answers

 

This publication aims to address confusion created by contradictory information in the public domain. It sets out to explain the current situation in immunisation science, including where there is consensus in the scientific community and where uncertainties exist.

 

The document is structured around six questions:

1 What is immunisation?

2 What is in a vaccine?

3 Who benefits from vaccines?

4 Are vaccines safe?

5 How are vaccines shown to be safe?

6 What does the future hold for vaccination?

 

The Science of Immunisation: Questions and Answers was prepared by a Working Group of eight members, co-chaired by Professors Tony Basten AO FAA FTSE and Ian Frazer AC FAA FRS FTSE. The document was also reviewed by an Oversight Committee chaired by Sir Gus Nossal AO CBE FAA FRS FTSE.
