Risk factors for alcoholism include: Steady drinking over time - Drinking too much on a regular basis for an extended period can produce a physical dependence on alcohol. Age - People who begin drinking at an early age are at a higher risk of alcohol dependence or abuse. Gender - Men are more likely to become dependent on alcohol than are women. However, women are at greater risk of developing some medical complications linked to drinking, such as liver disease. Family history - The risk of alcoholism is higher for people who have a parent who abused alcohol. Depression and other mental health problems - It's common for people with a mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression to abuse alcohol or other substances. Social and cultural factors - Having friends or a close partner who drinks regularly could increase your risk of alcoholism. The glamorous way that drinking is sometimes portrayed in the media may also send the message that it's OK to drink excessively.

vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins. The agent stimulates the body's immune system to recognize the agent as foreign, destroy it, and "remember" it, so that the immune system can more easily recognize and destroy any of these microorganisms that it later encounters.
