Vaccines are medications that help the body fight diseases. The vaccination’s goal is to train the immune system to recognize and destroy harmful substances. There are prevention vaccines and treatment vaccines. While some vaccinations are required, others are a personal choice and your decision to get them is based on your risk tolerance. Some diseases, however, are too dangerous. If a vaccine is developed, if it’s not made mandatory, you probably should get it anyway.
