The hepatitis B vaccine is also known as the first “anti-cancer” vaccine because it prevents hepatitis B, the leading cause of liver cancer worldwide.
Rotavirus spreads easily among infants and young children. The virus can cause severe watery diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain.
Diphtheria is a serious infection of the throat that can block the airway and cause severe breathing problems. Tetanus (lockjaw): a nerve disease that can happen at any age, caused by toxin-producing bacteria contaminating a wound. Pertussis (whooping cough): a respiratory illness with cold-like symptoms that lead to severe coughing (the "whooping" sound happens when a child breathes in deeply after a severe coughing fit).
Hib is a bacterial illness that can lead to a potentially deadly brain infection in young children. Hib may cause diseases such as meningitis (inflammation of the coverings of the brain and spinal column), bloodstream infections, pneumonia, arthritis and infections of other parts of the body.
PCV13 (pneumococcal conjugate vaccine) protects against 13 of the approximately 90 types of pneumococcal bacteria that can cause pneumococcal disease, including pneumonia, meningitis, and bacteremia.
Inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) was developed in 1955 by Dr Jonas Salk. Also called the Salk vaccine IPV consists of inactivated (killed) poliovirus strains of all three poliovirus types. IPV is given by intramuscular or intradermal injection and needs to be administered by a trained health worker.
The most commonly administered Influenza Vaccines (IIV4) is a quadrivalent vaccine, which provides protection against the four strains of influenza most likely to be circulating each season.
Influenza (LAIV4) designed to protect against four flu viruses: an influenza A(H1N1) virus, an influenza A(H3N2) virus and two influenza B viruses.
Measles starts as a fever, cough, runny nose, etc. Measles in older children can lead to inflammation of the brain, called encephalitis, which can cause seizures and brain damage. The mumps virus usually causes swelling in glands just below the ears, giving the appearance of chipmunk cheeks.
Varicella (chickenpox) is a febrile rash illness resulting from primary infection with the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). Humans are the only source of infection for this virus.
Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection caused by the hepatitis A virus. The virus is one of several types of hepatitis viruses that cause inflammation and affect your liver's ability to function.
TETANUS (T) causes painful stiffening of the muscles. DIPHTHERIA (D) can lead to difficulty breathing, heart failure, paralysis, or death. PERTUSSIS (aP), also known as “whooping cough,” can cause uncontrollable, violent coughing that makes it hard to breathe, eat, or drink.

MenACWY-CRM is a conjugate vaccine in which the capsular polysaccharides from Neisseria meningitidis serogroups A, C, W, and Y are conjugated to the diphtheria toxin mutant CRM197 (10). The vaccine provides protection against meningococcal serogroups A, C, W, and Y, but not against serogroup B.
MenB-4C is a multi-component, protein-based vaccine against MenB consisting of factor H-binding protein, Neisserial heparin-binding protein, Neisserial adhesion A and outer membrane vesicles containing Porin A. MenB-FHbp (bivalent rLP2086; Trumenba®) is a recombinant protein-based vaccine targeting Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B (MenB)
Pneumococcal disease refers to any illness caused by pneumococcal bacteria. These bacteria can cause many types of illnesses, including pneumonia, which is an infection of the lungs. Pneumococcal bacteria are one of the most common causes of pneumonia.
Dengue viruses are spread to people through the bite of an infected Aedes species (Ae. aegypti or Ae. albopictus) mosquito. Almost half of the world’s population, about 4 billion people, live in areas with a risk of dengue.
