This assignment is worth 50% of your final grade.Vaccines are one of public health’s greatest triumphs. Millions of people can be immunized to prevent or reduce the incidence and spread of infectious disease. Global immunization even opens the possibility of eradicating certain diseases.

Yet, underlying their great potential to prevent or reduce disease is the challenge of getting vaccines to all who need them. “Disease Warriors” chronicles the groundbreaking work of 19th century researchers, such as the famed scientist Louis Pasteur, who discovered that germs cause illness and developed some of the first vaccines—one of public health’s greatest triumphs. Today, vaccines have made great strides against disease. While certain diseases are preventable or can be reduced with vaccines, “Disease Warriors” makes clear that the world still faces major challenges in getting vaccines to all who need them.
