The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more commonly referred to as CDC, is a United States federal agency operating within the Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily responsible for safeguarding public health and safety by way of providing essential health-related information and forming partnerships with state health department and several other organizations.
The programs and activities that are launched by the CDC are in accordance to their agency mission, which is to "Collaborate to create the expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need to protect their health â€“ through health promotion, prevention of disease, injury and disability, and preparedness for new health threats."
In keeping with this mission, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has partnered with the National Institutes of Health and as a result, has developed the Research to Advance Vaccine Safety Program, wherein it seeks to obtain a more thorough understanding vaccine safety.
The discovery of vaccines is considered as a great medical breakthrough as it has contributed to the successful eradication of naturally occurred smallpox, and a substantial reduction of certain disease conditions that are caused by measles, mumps, influenza, hepatitis, diphtheria, and several other infections.
The Research to Advance Vaccine Safety Program aims to boost this medical breakthrough by funding scientific studies that address potentially relevant vaccine safety concerns such as:
1) A human being's immunological and physiological responses to vaccine and vaccine components.
