The description below is adapted from ACCJ Event Information.

July 6 is celebrated as "Vaccine Day". Since Dr. Louis Pasteur, the Father of Modern Vaccinology, tested the first rabies vaccine on a human subject on July 6, 1885, vaccines have decreased the incidence of infectious diseases, enhanced the quality of human life and brought many economic benefits.
In commemoration of this special day, the ACCJ Healthcare Committee has been holding seminars related to vaccines and we will hold the third commemorative seminar this year.
Especially this year, under the subject of "Vaccination - How Vaccines Can Protect Our Health and Society", the Committee invited Dr. Takeshi Enami, Director of Immunization Office, Health Service Division, Health Service Bureau, MHLW and Dr. Nobuhiko Okabe, Director General, Kawasaki City Institute for Public Health, as speakers.

Dr. Enami will speak, under the title of "Immunization Policy in Japan", on the preventive vaccination system implemented to protect the people’s health against infectious disease, as well as the review of such system and various measures taken to accurately respond to the changes of social conditions, from the viewpoint of the supervising government agency.
Dr. Okabe will speak, under the title of "For Infectious Disease Control and Safe Vaccination", on the importance of vaccine and vaccination that have been contributing to the control of infectious diseases, some important points to note and what preventive vaccination should be.

This seminar provides a good opportunity for policymakers (the administration side) and people to jointly review the value and benefits of vaccination to promote public health and disease prevention. We especially wish to recommend those working for the healthcare industry to participate in this seminar.
