Vaccines help boost the body’s immune system and help to protect the body against specific infections and diseases by producing antibodies (substances produced by the body to help fight disease) without actually infecting us with the disease.

They trigger the immune system to produce its own antibodies, as it would if the body had been infected with a disease. This is called "active immunity".
