How Do Vaccines Work?
In short: vaccines help you develop immunity without getting sick first. Vaccines teach your immune system to create proteins, known as antibodies, which protect you from possible future infections against certain disease-causing organisms. If you’ve been vaccinated against a virus and are later exposed to that virus, your immune system will remember how to produce the antibodies needed to protect you. Vaccines are your best shot at staying healthy from vaccine-preventable illnesses.
