Vaccinations provide an effective way to prevent fatal diseases or reduce their symptoms. This book highlights four infectious diseases: polio, tetanus, measles, and mumps. These four diseases are very harmful to human health and are difficult to treat after the infection because they are caused by a toxin or pathogenic virus. In all four cases, the disease exhibits different modes of transmission and progression of symptoms, which require unique treatment regimens. However, all cases can be prevented by vaccinations administered prior to infection.

Illness is a part of life. For many years, we have known about disease. But, we were not always so smart. The Black Plague ravaged Europe between 1347 and 1352 and killed 30–80 million people. No one knew how people caught the condition and lots of ideas failed. People just died. But, not everyone died; possibly, their immune systems helped them fight off these invaders.
