Abstract The ultimate goal in medicine is not treatment but prevention of disease, and vaccine administration represents the most efficacious and cost- effective measures for accomplishing this goal. The success of vaccination is best supported by the eradication of smallpox, elimination of polio in the western hemisphere, and reduction of previously common severe infectious diseases, such as measles, diphtheria, and tetanus. One current effort, global elimination of polio, warrants particular emphasis, since this represents a legacy in which all of us will have participated during our medical careers.
