Vaccines
  • What is it?
    • “dead” or weak virus
  • Types of Vaccines
    • Live attenuated – vaccine contains a living microbe that is very weak
    • Inactivated or killed – the microbe has been treated with chemicals, heat or radiation
  • What is a booster?
    • This is a “reminder” for your body
  • How do they work?
    • Antigenic material (the “virus”) is injected into your body
    • The immune system starts producing antibodies to fight off the antigens
    • The immune system stores the information needed to fight off the intruder if it comes back
