Vaccines were created in order to provide immunity against a particular disease. They are given primarily to infants and young children. Vaccines are typically made from the weakened or dead form of a specific microbe that our immune system is able to kill. By doing so, we theorize that our immune system has built immunity because it will recognize it in the future. However, the effectiveness of vaccination in the eradication of infectious diseases like smallpox and the prevention of polio, measles, rubella, diphtheria, mumps, and tetanus is questionable.
