What are Vaccinations?
A vaccine is a biological preparation designed to give patients an immunity, to a specific disease or condition. Generally, a vaccine is made from a weakened or neutralized, form of the actual microorganisms or virus, that causes the disease in the first place. Its usually a form of the actual virus, one of its toxins, or one of its surface proteins.
We’ve all heard the stories that once you’ve had chicken pox, you can’t ever get them again. Well, vaccines, work using the same principle. By exposing you to a certain, safe amount of the actual virus, it gives your body the ability to build up antibodies and develop an immunity to this virus – preventing it from effecting you in the future.
