Traditional vaccines contain either parts of microbes or whole microbes that have been killed or weakened so that they don’t cause disease. When your immune system confronts these harmless versions of the germs, after immunisation, it quickly clears them from your body. Vaccines trick your immune system to teach your body how to fight off potentially serious diseases.
