Abstract

Vaccination can be defined as the induction of protective immunity by the application of living or dead micro-organisms or their products. Vaccines against various bacterial and viral pathogens are available and research in respect of certain protozoal infections is encouraging, but it will be a long time before we have vaccines against fungal infections and multicellular microorganisms.
