About Journal

Introduction

Vaccines are perhaps medical science's most widely used and effective products. At the turn of the last century it was discovered that particular microbes gave rise to specific diseases and this link led to the development of vaccines. Immunology is the study of the structure and function of the immune system. It assists the science of vaccine development and how the immune system responds to vaccines.

Journal of Child, Adult Vaccines and Immunology is an initiative of Heighten Science to publish manuscripts that can become basis for improving the effectiveness of existing vaccines, as well as the development of novel vaccines and vaccine delivery systems. Journal of Child, Adult Vaccines and Immunology publishes ongoing scientific advances in vaccine development accompanied by scientific advances in epidemiological methods which can continue to inform the development and monitoring of new vaccines.

Reasons for Publishing

Vaccines are recommended based on age, prior vaccinations, health, lifestyle and occupation. However, the society still lacks the awareness and information to determine exactly which vaccines an individual need at what age and which vaccines are coming up. The development of new and effective vaccine products cannot proceed without a detailed understanding of the immune correlates of protection.

Therefore the manuscripts published in The Journal of Child, Adult Vaccines and Immunology provides essential information for rational vaccine design, and also guides the parameters to be measured when evaluating vaccine efficacy.
