• active immunization


    Active immunization refers to…

    Intended activation of the adaptive immune response by administration of a vaccine. Immunizations are among the most effective preventive measures in medicine. Active immunization with living or inactivated vaccine induces development of pathogen-specific memory cells that allow a rapid and specific immune response when re-exposed to the pathogen. In most cases, being vaccinated once conveys life-long protection.
