How vaccines work?
Vaccines contain small amounts of dead, weakened or partial virus/bacteria. When they are injected into the body, the immune system responds by producing antibodies (substances that fight off infection and disease) in the body. These antibodies can be quickly produced if you contract the virus or bacteria in the future, stopping the disease or reducing its impact.Read more Watch video
