The infectious diseases and viruses spread more quickly than ever before in history. The global population is now connected through metropolitan cities, international travel, and even local transit. Scientists and governmental organizations concurrently make medical advancements and adopt strategies to reduce, and even cure, the rapid onset of viruses and diseases.
The development of vaccines has been effective in defending against viruses and diseases – everything from the common flu to polio. For many around the world, vaccines are essential in areas where the threat of infection is very high, especially for children and the elderly. The prices per dose can be surprising and even overwhelming for patients, particularly those without insurance.
