First, there is the speed at which a disease spreads.

Next, there is the problem of how to keep people from falling ill, which is linked to vaccinations, he said.

Should it be "Second" instead of "Next"?

Possibly.
Is there a "third" after the "second?"

_________

The use of "next" is correct. If there is something else in the sequence of event, you could use "finally". Depending on context, you could even have additional adverbs before using "finally" to talk about some more actions/events in sequence e.g. "then" and "after that".

It's fine either way. There are choices, you know.
