Vaccines and Infectious Diseases: Learning From History

The world is in the grip of a pandemic that’s been described as “unprecedented”. But infectious diseases are not new in the history of humanity. With our guests Datuk Dr Zulkifli Ismail, Technical Committee Chairman of Immunise4Life, and Dr Helmy Haja Mydin, Consultant Respiratory Physician, we discuss what we have learned from our experiences in eradicating smallpox, fighting polio and dealing with past influenza pandemics. ‘Come Out Stronger. Protect them Better.’ Flu prevention is an Act of Love brought to you by Immunise4Life
