The Role of Vaccines in Preventing Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Resistance

by BSAC

Overview

Vaccines are one of the most beneficial public health tools ever developed: immunity through vaccination protects us from infectious diseases and helps reduce treatment-resistant microbes. Despite the benefits, financial barriers, transport difficulties, and rising skepticism are obstacles to vaccine uptake worldwide.

In this course from the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, infectious disease specialists Rajeka Lazarus and Susanne Hodgson explain vaccines' vital role in fighting disease worldwide. The course outlines how vaccines are developed, the challenges to vaccine distribution, and how vaccines help control major health threats like pandemics and antimicrobial resistance.
