Can Vaccinations Help Protect Me?
Getting a vaccination stimulates an immune system response to a specific virus, creating antibodies to fight off the virus if you become exposed later in life. Vaccines today contain the same or similar germs that cause certain diseases, but the germs are either dead, weakened, or incomplete, which means that transmission of the virus itself is not possible via the vaccine.
Vaccinations can be credited for the near-eradication of certain diseases in the United States, such as polio, smallpox, and tuberculosis (TB).
