The treatment or prophylaxis with a vaccine to produce immunity against disease is known as vaccination. The vaccine helps to limit the spread of antibiotic resistance, for it is an effective way to stop humans and animals from getting infected with any kind of disease caused by drug-resistant bacteria or by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics. Expanding the use of existing vaccines and developing new vaccines helps reduce the use of antibiotics, and it plays an important role in tackling antibiotic resistance by preventing illness and death.
There is a trend of taking antibiotics unnecessarily among general people whenever they fall ill or suffer from any kind of flu or fever. In this case, vaccination plays an important role. The diseases like Staphylococcus aureus, which causes skin and soft tissue infections; Klebsiella pneumonia, which causes pneumonia and infections of the bloodstream and urinary tract; Clostridium difficile which causes the diarrheal disease; and many other diseases would be less of health concern if new vaccines were developed. Although developing new vaccines and getting them used appropriately is quite complex and time-consuming, the scientific community needs to prioritize this research, in order to have the greatest impact on antibiotic resistance.
Vaccines help people from catching diseases caused by bacteria. Thus, vaccination for antibiotic resistance is really important in developing and using new vaccines to prevent bacterial diseases and to avoid the misuse of antibiotics.
