Immunizations are recommended for people of all ages, starting with newborns and continuing well into adulthood, especially when new diseases emerge, to protect every person within a society from severe symptoms and long-term complications of contagious diseases.
Immunization is a type of preventative medical care that includes providing people with vaccines that are designed to support their body’s immune system to fight against specific diseases. Vaccinations are most commonly administered to patients through an injection, but can also be provided to patients orally or through a nasal spray. Receiving a vaccine not only lessens the potential symptoms that would be experienced if the patient were to contract the disease, but will also reduce the chance of them contracting the disease as well as spreading the disease to others. If the majority of the population receives the vaccination for a particular disease, the disease will become far less prevalent among the population as a whole, significantly decreasing everyone’s chance of contracting it in the first place.
Immunizations work by essentially teaching your body how to effectively fight off a disease by exposing the immune system to the antigen that is present in the disease. This antigen is what makes up the vaccine, which when administered into the patient will elicit a response from the immune system which causes the immune system to create antibodies that defend against the disease. The vaccine itself will be a very small concentration of the disease, but will be substantial enough so that if the immune system is exposed to the antigens again in the future, as in they come across the germ that causes the disease, their body will already have antibodies that know how to respond effectively to the disease to quickly fight it off, preventing the patient from contracting the disease. There is still a chance that the patient will contract the disease, but since the immune system is already familiar with the disease, it will have a much easier time fighting it off, meaning less intense symptoms and a faster recovery.
Parents are recommended to follow an immunization schedule for their children to ensure that every single child is well protected against potentially life-threatening diseases that they will be exposed to throughout their lives. Children have weaker immune systems since they haven’t had many opportunities to be exposed to germs and bacteria, making them more susceptible for contracting contagious diseases, particularly within a classroom setting where the children are in close proximity and don’t have very good hygiene habits just yet. Ensuring that as many children as possible are sufficiently immunized against specific diseases before starting school and along a specific schedule throughout their childhood and adolescence will significantly reduce the chances of them and all of their peers from contracting the specific diseases. This early life immunization means far fewer people will be carrying or contracting diseases even into adulthood, making immunization schedules one of the most effective means of ensuring a healthier population for the future. The immunization schedule will also ensure that the children receive the following doses for particular vaccines within the recommended timeline, which is essential in ensuring the efficacy of specific vaccines to provide long-term immunization.
Immunizations are one of the most important components in preventative medicine today, being responsible for the management, containment, and eradication of many different diseases over the past few decades and continuing to provide substantial benefits to all members of the population. Immunizations provide life-long protection against life-threatening diseases or long-term disability. Immunizing all of those who are able to receive vaccines not only provides those particular individuals with protection from the diseases, but also reduces the chances of those who are unable to receive the vaccinations, including newborn babies, those who may not respond well to vaccinations (such as the immunocompromised or the elderly), and those who are unable to receive vaccinations due to a medical condition from contracting the disease. Herd immunization works to protect even the most vulnerable populations, allowing more patients to stay as healthy as possible to keep society functioning as efficiently as possible.
