NIAID releases 20th anniversary edition of Jordan Report on vaccine research

Vaccines have become an increasingly important medical tool against a variety of public health problems, both in the United States and abroad. To inform policy-makers, researchers and the public about recent accomplishments and future trends in vaccine research, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) today released a new edition of its comprehensive vaccine report, The Jordan Report 20th Anniversary (http://www.niaid.nih.gov/dmid/vaccines/jordan20).
