Based on this process, the vaccines contain weakened or killed antigens that stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies. That way, the body is ready to fight germs or viruses for which you have been vaccinated. In the infant stage an immunization schedule for common diseases (and even some already eradicated in some parts of the world) is planned and every age is assigned the corresponding. For adults a series of seasonal vaccines (such as flu, for example) and a number of compulsory vaccinations before traveling to certain countries in other continents that may involve the risk of transmission of diseases of these areas are established.
