Abstract

A vaccination is active immunization done to induce an immune response in an individual to achieve many goals, such as, protection from infectious agents (microorganisms, parasites) and immunotherapy for allergies, tumours, etc. Vaccinations are immunostimulants used in Immunotherapy to stimulate the immune system to protect an individual from disease. A vaccine imitates a pathogen, thus inducing the immune response in a manner similar to a natural infection, without exposing the individual to the virulent agent.
