How do Vaccines Work?

According to Vaccines.gov, "Vaccines help your immune system fight infections faster and more effectively. When you get a vaccine, it sparks your immune response, helping your body fight off and remember the germ so it can attack it if the germ ever invades again. And since vaccines are made of very small amounts of weak or dead germs, they won’t make you sick." Click here to read more about how vaccines work with your immune system.
