Vaccination works by stimulating the immune system, the natural system of the body to fight diseases. Our body is exposed to infection so that we develop immunity to it. The healthy immune system is able to recognize the invading viruses and bacteria, and produces antibodies to fight and destroy them. Vaccinations are given orally or by injection. The greatest advantage of vaccines is that we are able to develop immunity to many dangerous diseases by taking only a weak version of the infection without getting the full-blown disease.
