Skip to 0 minutes and 7 secondsWelcome to the second week of this BSAC-sponsored introductory course on the role of vaccines to prevent infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance. Vaccines can only protect individuals and communities if there is good uptake. This week, we will examine some of the challenges that prevent widespread uptake of vaccines. We will then go on to explore the important role of vaccines in preventing the spread of anti-microbial resistance. We do hope you enjoy the course.
Welcome to week 2
Welcome back! You are now in week 2 of The Role of Vaccines in Preventing Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Resistance.
Last week we learned how vaccines worked and about implementation. This week we will look at what happens when vaccine schedules breakdown and the reasons why this may happen. We will also look at the future uses of vaccines and their role in preventing antimicrobial resistance.
