As we take birth we come in contact with various viruses, bacteria and other microbes out of which some are beneficial and some are harmful and those harmful microbes’ leads to various diseases. Our bodies have immune system which protect us from various diseases and help our body to fight with those diseases.

It is found that some diseases lead to serious lifelong problem and some even leads to death. Vaccination aims to obtain this immunity without any risks of having diseases.  Vaccination means activating the immune system memory in our body. In this process of vaccination our immune is activated without any risk of disease and because of that it protect our body from deadly infectious diseases.

Infant’s tolerant vaccines well:  A child immune system is prepared in the mother’s womb only which help the child to protect it from various microbes that come after the birth. The child immune has very small part of vaccine so it protects them from common diseases like cold.

HOW ARE VACCINES PROVIDED?

Mostly vaccine are given through injections as they inject the vaccine in the blood and due to the continuous flow of blood in our body  the vaccine easily reaches to ever part of the body and help our immune to get stronger and fight with diseases. Some of the vaccine are also give through oral which also help our body and make immune stronger.

WHAT HAPPEN TO OUR BODY AFTER VACCINATION?

During the process of vaccination our body is exposed to some weekend microbes  and then when we vaccinate the body the vaccine substance meet those microbes in the body immune system, immune cells or antibodies are produced that will help to identify the real microbes. As soon as they identify the microbes our immune start to provide better and faster immune response to the body which help our body to fight with disease. This type of acquired immunity is called as artificial immunity.

A good vaccine will protect your body from those diseases for a long duration of time. The amount of vaccine given to any individual for any diseases varies from one to other.
