Oral vaccines: from mouth to mucosal immunity

Oral vaccines stop pathogens in their tracks before they get a chance to cause disease.

The body’s mucosal membranes are highly susceptible to infection and have evolved uniquely powerful defense mechanisms. Oral vaccines leverage the mucosal immune system to halt infectious diseases before they can cause illness.
