Vaccination is one of the most effective health promotion activities, but specific targets have been difficult and costly to achieve, and have frequently fallen short of the desired aims, leaving some vulnerable groups unprotected.
Policy in the UK has differed for the childhood diseases and in some cases, for example diphtheria and poliomyelitis, has been successful in almost eliminating the disease.
In other cases, such as that of pertussis, there has been public opposition, and for other diseases, for example, measles, sufficient numbers of the susceptible population have only recently been reached.
