How do vaccines work?

How do vaccines work?

Pharmacy news

Germs are all around us, both in our environment and in our bodies. When a person is susceptible and they encounter a harmful organism, it can lead to disease and death.

The body has many ways of defending itself against pathogens (disease-causing organisms). Skin, mucus, and cilia (microscopic hairs that move debris away from the lungs) all work as physical barriers to prevent pathogens from entering the body in the first place. 

When a pathogen does infect the body, our body’s defences, called the immune system, are triggered and the pathogen is attacked and destroyed or overcome.

The body’s natural response

A pathogen is a bacterium, virus, parasite or fungus that can cause disease within the body. Each pathogen is made up of several subparts, usually unique to that specific pathogen and the disease it causes. The subpart of a pathogen that causes the formation of antibodies is called an antigen. The antibodies produced in response to the pathogen’s antigen are an important part of the immune system. You can consider antibodies as the soldiers in your body’s defense system. Each antibody, or soldier, in our system is trained to recognize one specific antigen. We have thousands of different antibodies in our bodies. When the human body is exposed to an antigen for the first time, it takes time for the immune system to respond and produce antibodies specific to that antigen. 

In the meantime, the person is susceptible to becoming ill.

Stay Covid Safe

Stay Covid Safe

Health & Wellness

We touch many common surfaces & objects every day, often without noticing. This increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, germs & other bacteria.
If someone has COVID-19 and droplets from their cough or sneeze land on a surface, other people can become infected if they touch this and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth.
That’s why it is so important when you’re out and about to:
• wipe down and disinfect surfaces before and after use, if possible
• avoid touching your face
• wash or sanitise your hands often, including before eating,
• wash or sanitise your hands again when you get home.
Look out for: money, countertops, door handles, elevator buttons, hand rails, keyboards, petrol pumps and shopping trolleys.
