Medical and pharmaceutical research vaccine achievements
Over numerous decades, the medical professional community and healthcare industry researchers have made extraordinary progress in controlling individual and widespread disease outbreaks through the development of vaccines.
These immunizations have safeguarded the health of millions while avoiding enormous expenses well beyond the cost of their development.
Vaccines have played a pivotal role in disease prevention. The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an onslaught of intellectual, financial and technical investment in vaccine development not only for SARS-CoV-2 but for other healthcare threats as well.
This is a list of breakthrough vaccines we now have:
- Haemophilus Influenzae Type B (Hib)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Japanese encephalitis
- Meningococcal B
- Pneumococcal disease
- Whooping cough
- Yellow fever
Many of these vaccines are administered to infants and adolescents as part of the primary immunization series that will likely protect them for the rest of their lives.
COVID-19 accelerated vaccine development through the use of technology on a global scale
The hard work of medical professionals and clinical researchers throughout the world was supported by unprecedented digital technology that enabled the development, testing, manufacturing and distribution of millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines in less than a year.
This harsh worldwide exercise is a turning point in global healthcare and vaccine development. As we move forward, new vaccines will now be developed for existing diseases for which there have been no immunizations available for years.
Looking ahead, we are now better prepared to deal with unforeseen, undiscovered threats from viruses and other pathogens that can emerge at any time. We have enriched our ability to combine and deploy human, clinical and technology resources in an organized and productive effort.
Hesitant about getting the COVID-19 vaccine?
Rest assured, many people are cautious about being vaccinated. What they don't realize is it is quite likely they have already been immunized for numerous diseases already. The reason why they have not been infected or severely sickened by many diseases is because they are vaccinated against them.
As evidenced by the decades of successful vaccine research and development, personal wellness is on the side of those who are vaccinated!
Getting the COVID-19 vaccine will protect you, your family members, friends and coworkers. It will allow medical professionals and clinical researchers to focus more time on helping people with other healthcare issues.
Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 also enables the healthcare industry to devote more time and resources to develop new medications and vaccines for illnesses that we already know exist and those that arise in the future.
At the earliest chance, get the COVID-19 vaccine and you will be part of global medical history and be a part of its future as well!
