    There is overwhelming scientific consensus that vaccines are a very safe and effective way to fight and eradicate infectious diseases. Limitations to their effectiveness, nevertheless, exist. Sometimes, protection fails because of vaccine-related failure such as failures in vaccine attenuation, vaccination regimes or administration or host-related failure due to host's immune system simply.   Hviid A, Wohlfahrt J, Stellfeld M, et al. Childhood vaccination and nontargeted infectious disease hospitalization.

Additionally, the lag between infection and antibody development can affect test accuracy, as infected individuals may test negative.

The list of childhood diseases can be overwhelming: measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, pertussis, polio, meningitis, influenza and rotavirus. One way to acquire active immunity is to protective inoculations in infectious diseases infection with the disease-causing form of the organism.

In general, once persons recover from infectious diseases, they will have lifelong immunity to that disease (there are exceptions, such as malaria).

The persistence of protection for many years after the infection is known as immunologic. Immunity and Immunization. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "immunization is the process whereby a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine.

Vaccines stimulate the body’s own immune system to protect the person against subsequent infection or disease.".

Fauci Optimistic About COVID Vaccines, Though Immunity Unknowns Complicate Development. Teams are starting to test vaccines using messenger RNA or chimpanzee cold viruses to inoculate humans. Vaccines. A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease.

A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe or its toxins. More than a century ago, the crucial importance of the humoral immune response in immunity against infection was shown ically, the passive transfer of serum from animals with tetanus or diphtheria provided protection to non-immune animals, which demonstrated the presence of a substance — antibodies — that could confer protection observations gave rise to passive serum.

Prevention of infectious diseases through immunisation of the growing ageing adult population is essential to improve healthy ageing. However, many licenced and recommended vaccines for this age group show signs of waning of the protective effect due to declining immune responses (immuno-senescence) and decreasing vaccine uptake.

The majority of vaccines, such as those for polio and measles, stimulate a type of immune response called antibody-mediated immunity. But for some chronic infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.

Infectious disease - Infectious disease - Natural and acquired immunity: Every animal species possesses some natural resistance to disease. Humans have a high degree of resistance to foot-and-mouth disease, for example, while the cattle and sheep with which they may be in close contact suffer in the thousands from it.

Rats are highly resistant to diphtheria, whereas unimmunized children. In Emil von Behring received the first Nobel Prize in medicine for serum therapy against diphtheria, a disease that killed thousands of infants annually.
