A vaccine is a biological preparation of killed forms of microbes, living attenuated organisms, living fully virulent organisms, a microbe’s toxins or one of its surface proteins. Vaccines play a key role in improving immunity against particular diseases. Therefore, vaccination is promoted as a vital public health intervention throughout the globe. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), vaccination has reduced the burden of infectious disease globally to a great extent. According to a study conducted by Zhou et al, vaccination prevented 42,000 early deaths and approximately 20 million cases of diseases in children born in the U.S. in 2009, resulting in saving USD 13.5 billion in direct medical and non-medical costs and USD 68.8 billion in total societal costs.
