There are several patron saints who guard against plagues and pandemics, but I can't find anyone who oversees vaccines.
Of course, if I started praying to Roman Catholic saints, my bishop would probably revoke my Lutheran confirmation card.
So Doraemon it is!
One of those saints who one can pray to to protect against plagues is St. Marina of Antioch. At one point, Marina was attacked by Satan in the form of a black man, and she grabbed him by the hair and whacked him with a hammer until he ran away.
I don't know about vaccines, but it sounds like she could be the patron saint of protection in questionable urban areas.
