A vaccine is a substance that is introduced into the body to prevent infection or to control disease due to a certain pathogen, which is a disease-causing organism, such as a virus, bacteria or parasite. The vaccine “teaches” the body how to defend itself against the pathogen by creating an immune response. Preventive vaccines work to protect an individual from infection or disease by introducing a small component or a non- harmful form of the pathogen (called the foreign antigen) into the body. The body produces an immune response to the pathogen by generating antibodies (via the humoral response), killer cells (via the cell- mediated response), or both. A small group of memory B-cells and T-cells remain in the body and can quickly initiate a strong immune response, i.e., by producing antibodies, and helping the production of killer T-cells or antibodies, respectively. The next time the real pathogen is encountered, the immune system remembers it and mounts a much larger, quicker response than it would have if the individual had never received the vaccine. This is known as “immune memory”.
