B1.1.2 How our bodies defend themselves B1 Lesson 9 Vaccines
l Vaccines – what they are and how they work. Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of being vaccinated against a disease, eg the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Full Specification TextEdit

l) People can be immunised against a disease by introducing small quantities of dead or inactive forms of the pathogen into the body (vaccination). Vaccines stimulate the white blood cells to produce antibodies that destroy the pathogens. This makes the person immune to future infections by the microorganism. The body can respond by rapidly making the correct antibody, in the same way as if the person had previously had the disease.
MMR vaccine is used to protect children against measles, mumps and rubella.
