Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is focused on the impaired immunity with age or other related special pathological processes, a phenomenon called immunosenescence, resulting in an increased vulnerability of individuals to infectious diseases, age-related inflammatory diseases and also a diminished response to vaccination. The collection within this Special Issue aims to gather original articles and reviews or communications that offer insight into the underlying biology of immunosenescence, immune response to vaccines, the assessment of cellular and humoral immune responses induced by vaccines, the durability of antibody and cellular immunity, response differences associated with varying vaccine platforms, differences in vaccine populations, innate responses in vaccine-mediated protection, etc.
