Vaccine- Preventable Diseases
An infectious disease for which an effective preventive vaccine exists is termed as a vaccine-preventable disease. If a person dies from a disease for which vaccines are available then the death is considered as a vaccine-preventable death. Vaccines produced to fight against bacterial and viral diseases are a part of controlling communicable disease world-wide. Vaccination against a specific disease reduces the social and economic burden of the disease on communities apart from reducing the incidence of that disease.
