VACCINATION is the introduction of an antigen (VACCINE) in order to produce immunity to a disease. Since development of the first vaccine (cowpox, a precursor of smallpox, which was officially eradicated in 1977), the list of vaccine-preventable diseases has grown significantly.

Today, such public health menaces as measles, mumps, hepatitis A/B, chickenpox, pneumonia, meningitis, polio and influenza are all controllable – some, e.g. polio and measles, actually within reach of eradication.

VACCINATION and increased VACCINE DEVELOPMENT are generally considered the most effective methods of preventing infectious disease worldwide.

Our design illustrates antigens triggering protective antibody production. A vaccination needle is discretely positioned at the lower border of the design.

A back-of-tie "Awareness Note" and a source citation are incorporated in the pattern design, which reads:

"VACCINES are developed by using specific antigens to trigger production of antibodies which then bind to the antigens and allow the immune system to protect against future infection. VACCINATION is considered the most effective method of preventing infectious disease worldwide."

"Design illustrates antigens, antibody production and vaccination needle - all part of the process to create immunity."
