Vaccination programs are there to provide people with the vaccinations against specific diseases. Their aim is to use immunisation to prevent the spreading of harmful diseases. How this program work is that the NHS provides a scheduled vaccination for vulnerable people like children and elderly. These programs are very important as vulnerable people tend to have a weaker immune system and can easily catch a disease which is why these programs are offered to keep them safe. People who are at risk of exposure to diseases are also offered these vaccinations however they must for them. For children, these vaccines are usually scheduled during the first year of there birth and for elderly people, it’s often done yearly like the flu vaccination. These programs involve lots of injections against dangerous diseases like measles and meningitis which can result in death. In schools, teenage girls are also given human papillomavirus vaccine to protect them from getting cervical cancer.
