List of Prequalified Vaccines

The WHO publish a list of vaccines that are found to be safe, efficacious and of good quality, after undergoing investigation of relevant data, testing and examination of their production sites.[3][4]


Vaccines provide active immunity and induce immunological memory by triggering the production of antibodies and cells involved in the immune response.[5] As a result, when confronted with a natural infection, the immune system in a vaccinated person can recognise and respond to the infection.[5] There may be detectable antibodies after vaccination, but if not detected, there may still be immunological memory and protection.[5]
