Vaccination

Summary

Vaccination

A vaccine is an antigenic material. Vaccination means administration of a vaccine to protect an individual from a certain disease. The vaccine stimulates the immune system of the individual to produce antibodies against certain pathogens. Vaccinations have successfully reduced the incidence of some diseases, e.g. small pox, poliomyelitis, measles and tetanus. Common routes of administration of a vaccine are oral, injection, transdermal and intranasal. Common types of vaccine are inactive vaccines, attenuated vaccines and vaccines containing viral proteins.
