Vaccine Preventable Disease
Viral Hepatitis B
Vaccine-preventable diseases are illnesses that can be prevented by vaccination. Examples include measles, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, and influenza. Vaccines work by introducing a small, harmless piece of the disease-causing agent (such as a protein or a piece of DNA) into the body, which triggers an immune response. This response trains the immune system to recognize and fight the actual disease if it is encountered in the future. Vaccination is widely considered to be one of the most effective public health interventions and has been responsible for the eradication of smallpox and the near-eradication of other diseases such as measles and polio.
