It depends on the type of infection. For extracellular infections, including some bacteria, cellular immunity is not need and wouldn't be beneficial. For some intracellular infections including many viruses, cellular immunity is important for immunity. It is more difficult to vaccinate against intracellular infections, especially chronic ones, because cellular immunity is more difficult to induce using a vaccine.
