Today, the swiftness of epidemics of infectious disease is alarming. To date vaccines have been an enormous success for not only preventing but completely eradicating a number of malicious infectious disease like small pox, rubella, mumps, measles and polio as well as decreasing the burden of diseases like tetanus, measles and diphtheria etc. Vaccination has been the hallmark of disease control for hundreds of years since it was first tested by English physician Edward Jenner in 1796 and further validated by Louis Pasteur through their work on smallpox vaccine.
