Vaccines and Immunization Procedures Vaccine – preparation of disease-containing agent or its products to induce active immunity Vaccines protect individuals, stop spread in population Herd immunity Dramatic decrease in childhood disease Failure to vaccinate children → reappearance of disease Effective vaccines should be safe, few side effects, lasting protection

Attenuated (Live) Vaccines Weakened/ avirulent form of disease-causing microorganism – Genetic manipulation to produce mutant pathogens with reduced virulence Replicates in recipient → mild/ undetectable infection Advantages – Stimulate cell-mediated immunity – T H 1 and T C cells → good for controlling infection – Potential to spread immunity → herd immunity – 1 dose → long-term protection Disadvantages – Potential to cause disease Cannot be administered to pregnant women, immunocompromised – Usually require refrigeration – Occasionally mutate → cause disease
