They are used to prevent typhoid fever, paratyphoid, cholera, influenza, pertussis, tick-borne encephalitis, and some other diseases. Depending on the microorganism species, various methods are used to inactivate them. The microorganisms can be treated with formaldehyde, acetone, alcohol, merthiolate, or at high temperature. Efficacy of inactivated vaccines is lower than that of live vaccines although there are some highly effective inactivated vaccines as well. Inactivated vaccines are injected subcutaneously.

Virulence of tuberculosis bacteria has thus been decreased by multiple cultivation of the starting culture on bile-potato media. Most effective proved the method of controlled variability of microbes and selection of low-virulence and highly immunogenic strains. Artificial active immunity is now induced by vaccines (from Latin vacca, cow and vaccina, cowpox); the method is known as vaccination. The following preparations are used to prevent infectious diseases: live vaccines prepared from attenuated non-pathogenic microorganisms or viruses; inactivated vaccines prepared from inactive cultures of pathogenic microorganisms causing infectious diseases; chemical vaccines (antigens), isolated from microorganisms by various chemical methods; toxoids, prepared by treating toxins (the poisons produced by microorganisms causing infectious diseases) with formaldehyde.
