Getting vaccinated against a particular virus triggers an immune response, resulting in the production of antibodies that will protect you from the virus if you are exposed to it later in life. Today’s vaccines contain the same or similar germs that cause certain diseases; however, the germs are either dead, weakened, or incomplete, making it impossible for the vaccine to transmit the virus itself.
Some diseases, like polio and smallpox, have been nearly eradicated in the United States thanks to vaccinations.
