Why can't we eradicate other diseases like smallpox using vaccines?
Small pox is eradicated by WHO's Intensified Eradication Program began in 1967. We need to have similar immunisation programs for all the different vaccine preventable diseases(VPDs) to eradicate all these.

Government of India (GoI) already started similar programs such as Pulse Polio immunisation programs and we achieved the status of Polio Free country by WHO in 2014 itself. GoI initiated mass immunisation campaigns for MR vaccine in the year 2017. The success of all these programs lies with the support of the population. So we need to educate our population to complete the vaccination schedule to eradicate all the VPDs from India.

If the vaccines used with in a national immunization program dose not par with WHO what are the other options available in India????
All the vaccines present in India's National Immunisation Program are WHO pre- qualified.
If the vaccine is not covered in National Immunisation Program (NIP); then what are the options to be considered ?
All the vaccines released in the Indian market are undergoing extensive clinical trials and only then they get approved to release in the market by DCGI.
But as vaccines are biological substances, there can be batch variations. There should be strict quality checking options in the manufacturing companies to avoid any quality defects.
