How vaccines work
Vaccines often contain microorganisms of a disease in either a dead or weakened form which work to elicit a response from your body that stimulates your immune system in producing necessary antibodies that fight against that particular organism. So, if you encounter the organism again you will be able to successfully defend off the microbe. Vaccines are considered to be safe and only have rare occurrences of adverse reactions which our doctor’s can explain to you at your appointment.
