Vaccines definition

When we attacked by pathogens(micro organism) our body has its own immune system which protect against them. it’s first most  and efficient system. it keeps micro organism out or kill them in side body or excrete them by excretion ways.

But there are some micro organisms which by pass or fool the immune system, causes serious illness.

Vaccination is one of the best method to make our immune system understand harmful micro organism which are not recognized normally. In this way, we can boost our immune system.

Vaccination is a prevention method against life threatening micro organism. we can control such disease which are harmful and cause serious illness. disease such as :

  1. 1. measles
  2. 2. polio
  3. 3. tetanus
  4. 4. whooping cough

Govt. of India has launched many vaccination programs  like polio, tetanus, pertusis, Diphtheria and many more.

Universal Immunization Programme  is a vaccination program launched by the Govt of India in 1985. It became a part of Child Survival and Safe Motherhood Programme in 1992 and is currently one of the key areas under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) since 2005. The program now consists of vaccination for 12 diseases- Tuberculosis, diptheria, pertusis (whooping cough), tetanus, poliomyelitis, measles, heptitis B, diarrhoea, japanese encephalitis, rubella, pneumonia (Heamophilus Influenza Type B)and Pneumococcal diseases (Pneumococcal Pneumonia and Meningitis). Hepatitis B and Pneumococcal diseases[1] was added to the UIP in 2007 and 2017 respectively .


How does vaccination work?

A healthy immune system defends against invaders. The immune system is composed of several types of cells. These cells defend against and remove harmful pathogens. However, they have to recognize that an invader is dangerous.

Vaccination teaches the body to recognize new diseases. It stimulates the body to make antibodies against antigens of pathogens. It also primes immune cells to remember the types of antigens that cause infection. That allows for a faster response to the disease in the future.Vaccines work by exposing you to a safe version of a disease.

This can take the form of:

  1. a protein or sugar from the makeup of a pathogen
  2. a dead or inactivated form of a pathogen
  3. a toxoid containing toxin made by a pathogen
  4. a weakened pathogen

When the body responds to the vaccine, it builds an adaptive immune response. This helps equip the body to fight off an actual infection.

Vaccines are usually given by injection. Most vaccines contain two parts. The first is the antigen. This is the piece of the disease your body must learn to recognize. The second is the adjuvant.

The adjuvant sends a danger signal to your body. It helps your immune system to respond more strongly against the antigen as an infection. This helps you develop immunity.

Vaccinations schedule

Vaccines are very important for infants, but they’re not all given immediately after birth. Each vaccine is given on a timeline, and some require multiple doses. This table can help you understand the timeline of each vaccine:
