The course will cover all aspects of vaccinology from historical overview, description of vaccination programs, and
basic introduction to vaccination immunology to vaccine development from research phase to production.
Additionally, the vaccine safety and examination and regulatory, ethical, and economic aspects will be discussed
including the influence of anti-vaccine activities and changes in the process of introduction of vaccines against the
newly emerging infection to the routine practice. Two lectures will be dedicated to human vaccines, one to
vaccines applied against infectious diseases and the second one to vaccines against non-infectious diseases.
