Vaccines are among the most important accomplishments in medicine. They have saved more lives around the world than any other medical invention, including antibiotics or surgery. Only clean water has saved more lives than vaccines. Disease threats are everywhere, throughout life – from birth, to daycare and school entry, to military recruit training, to adult life, to deployment, and into retirement. Diseases can spread person-to-person, through consuming contaminated food or water, from the bite of an infected mosquito, and other ways. Vaccines provide a safe and effective means of countering the threats to personal health and military readiness.
