‘Leading scientific journal, Nature, has published a special edition focusing on vaccines. ’

Cover_natureThe publication includes a series of news features, comment pieces and research papers looking at the achievements of vaccination as well as future challenges.

The editorial – Modern heroes: the great achievements of vaccines are not confined to the past – neatly sums up vaccination in the early 21st century: “the undiminished promise of vaccines, and the factors that threaten it – complacency, funding shortages and the unease that vaccines provoke in so many people.”

Other features include:

  • Heidi Larson & Isaac Ghinai: Lessons from Polio Eradication
  • Rino Rappuoli & Alan Aderem: A 2020 vision for vaccines against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria
  • Julie Leask: Target the fence-sitters
  • The Case of Measles
  • Comments
