Through lectures, pamphlets and word of mouth recommendations, Kak and several other doctors are working to raise awareness about the importance of vaccinations for things such as flu, tetanus, certain types of cancer and a range of other preventable infections. The campaign focuses especially on women and the elderly, who don't tend to pay attention to their own needed vaccinations the way parents of schoolchildren do. The vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles the disease it's designed to prevent, which in some cases can cause a mild illness that lasts one to two days.According to the Center for Disease Control, the United States' public health institute, the U.S. saw 763,094 cases of measles and 552 deaths from the disease in 1958 .The smallpox vaccine developed in the 1700s has nearly eradicated the disease throughout the world.
