Vaccines and Immunization

Vaccines are used to boost your immune system and prevent serious, life-threatening diseases. Vaccines help protect against many diseases that used to be much more common. Many of those infections can cause serious or life-threatening illnesses and should cause life-long health problems. Because of vaccines, many of those illnesses are now rare. This is a natural way to deal with infectious diseases. Live virus vaccines use the weakened (attenuated) form of the virus. The measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and therefore the varicella (chickenpox) vaccine are examples. Killed (inactivated) vaccines are made up of a protein or other small pieces taken from an epidemic or bacteria. The pertussis (pertussis) vaccine is an example. Toxoid vaccines contain a toxin or chemical made by the bacteria or virus. They make you resistant to the harmful effects of the infection, rather than to the infection itself. Examples are the diphtheria and tetanus vaccines. Biosynthetic vaccines contain manmade substances that are very almost like pieces of the virus or bacteria. The Hepatitis B vaccine is an example.
