Which type of infection can be prevented by a vaccination?
Vaccines prevent only the infectious diseases that they were made to prevent. For example, a vaccine for one type of flu will prevent that type of flu, but you may still get o…ther types if you are not also vaccinated for them. This is why the seasonal flu vaccine usually contains vaccine for the three most likely types of flu that are expected to circulate at the next flu season. There are vaccines for the various types of influenza, for other viral diseases like measles, mumps and polio and for a very limited number of bacterial disease such as one common type of bacterial pneumonia. See the related questions below for more information about how vaccines work.
The vaccine is made of weakened virus particles. This causes your body to produce interferon to fight an infection. :-)
Vaccines do not prevent infection. Vaccines prepare the immune system to fight infection by allowing the immune system to produce antibodies to a specific invading organism, k…ill it, and remember it in the future. In vaccines, this organism is often weakened or dead. If the invading organism is found by the immune system in the future following immunization, the immune system remembers it and produces the specific antibodies needed to kill it quickly.
wash you hands after any cuts or scrathes, to prevent dangerious bacteria getting into you system.
hehehe weakers u DOTA lan g
OSHA recommends that all workers who come into contact with blood be vaccinated to prevent HBV infections?
The number one way to prevent infection is by proper hand washing. Contact your local health department or CDC.gov for specific hand washing instructions. Generally: warm wate…r, soap, scrub and lather for 20 sec (cleaning under nails), rinse, dry and turn off faucet with paper towel.
Each vaccination is specific for certain diseases. The seasonal flu vaccinations usually cover the three most likely types of seasonal flu that will be expected to be in your… part of the world during the flu season, and would be to prevent you from getting those specific types of flu. The seasonal flu shot for 2009 - 2010 will not provide immunity for the A-H1N1/09 Pandemic "Swine Flu". A second series of two vaccination shots will be necessary for the A-H1N1/09 virus, once that vaccine is released to the first group to have priority to get the vaccinations. Local public health officials will publish when that is available, to whom, and where. For the Northern Hemisphere's 2009 Flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): The flu vaccine protects against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. This year's influenza vaccine contains three new influenza virus strains. They are: A/Brisbane/59/2007(H1N1)-like virus; A/Brisbane/10/2007 (H3N2)-like virus; B/Brisbane 60/2008-like antigens. The 2009-10 influenza vaccine can protect you from getting sick from these three viruses, or it can make your illness milder if you get a related but different influenza virus strain.
Vaccines inject a weak amount of the pathogen that causes the infection into you. This is not enough to harm you. This causes your bodies lymphocyte white blood cells to produ…ce antibodies that lock onto antigens on the pathogen, marking then out for your phagocyte white blood cells to destroy them. This means that next time you get infected with the pathogen, your body recognises it quicker so it can produce the antibodies much faster and destroy the pathogen before you express any symptoms.
Vaccines are created by taking a sample of whatever you want to prevent and heating it up just enough to kill it or severely weaken it. When that is injected in a person, thei…r immune system will still fight it like it was alive. Even though it's dead, it's still the virus/bacterium, and your body marks it down as such. So now here comes the real thing, but your body already knows from the vaccine that this is a very bad thing and needs to be removed. Your immune system promptly does so.
Currently, the most simplest and easiest way is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, followed by hand-drying with a pa…per towel. This takes about as long as it does to sing "Happy Birthday," so some hospitals recommend washing your hands for the duration of this simple tune! If running water or soap isn't available at that moment, an alcohol-based hand gel or wipe will do. Other ways to prevent an infection is to Never EVER share your personal belongings with another person. In kindergarten, they taught you to share your toys and keep your hands to yourself. In real life, you keep your toys AND your hands to yourself. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, but NEVER with your hands. Instead, cover your mouth with your arm, sleeve or the crook of the elbow. Get vaccinated. You never know when you'll get the flu or the chicken pox, and yes, another word for a vaccination is a shot. For kids 9 and below, ya it sounds scary, and it may hurt a bit, but you'll be thankful for it later. Some schools don't even let you IN unless you have proof that you took a certain shot. Watch the news. You never know when a disease can strike the area that you're planning to camp.
The human body has several different types of white blood cells (WBCs) which fight foreign invaders (Antigens) that enter our body. Certain types of WBCs react to specific inv…aders to produce antibodies that aid in the destruction of these antigens. However, it takes time to produce these antibodies, especially if it is the first time the body has come into contact with a specific antigen. The Lymphocyte is a WBC that transforms into a B cell. Whenever an antigen enters the body, the B cell proliferates into plasma cells and memory cells. Plasma cells produce the antibodies against a specific antigen. The first time this happens, it takes several days for the antibodies to become numerous enough to do any good. The memory cells are created to prevent this time lag from happening again. They enhance the production of antibodies upon second contact. Vaccines are a collection of dead or attenuated antigens (foreign invaders) that are introduced into the body so that memory cells are created. If the live antigen enters at a later time, the body now has the ability to rapidly create antibodies. The vaccine does not prevent future infections, it enables your body to kill the foreign invader before it has an effect on your body. Therefore, you won't even know you've been infected.
yes, it can help up to a little bit.
Correct. There is no vaccine for Hepatitis C. There are medications that can help treat it but none have been found to be effective for prevention.
Most vaccines give you a mild case of the disease they are attempting to prevent but in a 'dead' state that generally does not allow the illness to become serious. Your body i…s then able to produce an abundance of antibodies that will be able to fight off a 'live' version of the virus should you ever come into contact with one.
In HIV and AIDS
ANSWER: Currently, there are NO vaccines that can prevent HIV or the HIV virus, but there ARE vaccines that can prevent Hep. C. I hope this will help answer your question!
