Inoculation is carried out to prevent various contagious diseases primarily by active or passive immunization by
inoculating with live attenuated or inactivated vaccines.
 
The contagious diseases against which inoculation is mandatory for infants include BCG (intra-dermal), B-type
hepatitis, DTaP, Td, polio, MMR, Japanese B encephalitis (inactivated vaccine), varicella and influenza, typhoid,
and Korean hemorrhagic fever, against which inoculation is recommended for high risk groups. Inoculation
against such diseases is available at public health centers or hospitals.

Other diseases against which inoculation is not mandatory but is available at healthcare institutions as
recommended by the government include BCG (percutaneous), Japanese B encephalitis (live vaccine), Hib,
A-type hepatitis, and pneumococcus.
