The Importance of Vaccination
At Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine, we understand the importance of vaccination in maintaining good health and preventing the spread of diseases. Vaccines are one of the most effective ways to protect ourselves and our communities from various infectious diseases.
The Types of Vaccines
There are several types of vaccines available, each designed to target specific diseases and provide immunity against them. Some common types of vaccines include:
Inactivated vaccines contain killed pathogens or pieces of the pathogen, which cannot cause the disease but can induce an immune response in the body. These vaccines require multiple doses to provide long-term immunity.
Live Attenuated Vaccines
Live attenuated vaccines contain weakened forms of the pathogen, which can stimulate a strong immune response without causing the disease. These vaccines often provide lifelong immunity after a single or few doses.
Subunit, Recombinant, Polysaccharide, and Conjugate Vaccines
These types of vaccines contain only specific pieces (subunits) of the pathogen or the pathogen's genetic material. They are safe for individuals with weakened immune systems as they do not contain live pathogens.
Toxoid vaccines are used to protect against diseases caused by bacterial toxins. These vaccines contain inactivated toxins that stimulate an immune response, leading to protection against the toxin-producing bacteria.
