There’s no shortage of jargon when it comes to discuss issues around vaccination, so we’ve compiled a list explaining commonly terms to help demystify the subject.

Vaccine

A biological preparation helps protect you from diseases which can be passed from person to person. They do this by boosting the body’s immune system which defends us against illness. A vaccine prompts the body to become immune to infections without causing you to suffer from the disease itself.

Virulence

The ability of an agent of infection to product disease.
