Vaccines: Benefits and Risks

Vaccines: Benefits and Risks

A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. According to the Oxford Dictionary, a vaccine is “an antigenic substance prepared from the causative agent of a disease or a synthetic substitute, used to provide immunity against one or several diseases.” A vaccine tries to stimulates our immune system to recognize certain types of bacteria and viruses by injecting a weakened or killed pathogen, such as a bacterium or virus, or of a portion of the pathogen’s structure to our body but is incapable of causing severe infection. Vaccines – Benefits and Risks is a reference book for the latest development and status of vaccine. It discusses vaccine effectiveness, toxicity and adverse effects.
