What is the history of vaccination?

Amesh Adalja • JANUARY 26, 2017

Amesh Adalja of the University of Pittsburgh presents a brief history of vaccination, touching on the many achievements of the individuals who developed this technology. Adalja explains how vaccines work and how they were discovered. He covers the work of Jenner, Pasteur, Salk, Hilleman, and others. Adalja argues that through vaccination, we have the ability to make diseases disappear completely and we ought to do so. According to Adalja, despite science's many successes to date, there remains a need for new (or improved) vaccines for many diseases, including influenza, HIV, hepatitis C, norovirus, staph, and tuberculosis.
