The Importance of Immunisation & Vaccination.


Immunisation protects the entire population. The present and future generations to come. This happens through eradication of the most deadly diseases by means of our effective immunisation & vaccination programs.

These comprehensive, global immunisation programmes set out by the

World Health Organisation (W.H.O) aim to have 95% of the population vaccinated with by means childhood vaccinations and 75% of the population by means of influenza vaccines.


Immunisation is a process by which a person's immune system is fortified against the disease. It is a cost effective and a safe health intervention.


Humans have a long history of communicable diseases. There are records of smallpox infecting people 10000 years ago. Inoculations against it were described as early as 6th century BC.

Modern era of immunisation started at 18th century when Edward Jenner observed that infected cows with cowpox (a less potent form of smallpox) became immune to smallpox.

He inserted a pus taken from Sarah Nelmes, a milkmaid with cowpox, into a local boy, James Phillips. When exposed to smallpox, the boy’s immune system successfully fought the disease.

The last case of smallpox was recorded in 1977. The W.H.O declared it eradicated in 1980.

This was once the most deadliest disease in Europe, killing about 400 000 people annually. Due to a effective immunisation & Vaccination programme fortunately this disease does not exist anymore.
