Abstract

Despite the large number of vaccines, this review asks the question "Why don't we have vaccines for all infectious diseases?" The first and second parts of this series discussed basics of vaccine immunology and new approaches and outlined some of the difficulties and approaches that are being taken for antiviral and antibacterial vaccines. The third part of the series discusses some of the approaches that are being taken to develop new antibacterial vaccines for some of the most important bacteria.
