Explanation Of Immunization Of Immune Individuals And Non-immune Individuals?
I have read about immunization, then it says there are individuals who are immune and individuals who are not immune, what does it mean for individuals who are immune and non-immune? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Immunizations are intended to provide the body with active immunity. This immunization is carried out by injecting germs that have been weakened or previously killed into the body. These germs are strong enough to trigger the body to form antibodies, but not to cause the person who got them to become sick. These antibodies are very important in their role to help prevent future infections. However, immunization cannot guarantee 100% that the sufferer will not get sick. It's just that, the possibility of sufferers to fall ill after receiving specific immunizations will be much reduced. If in the end the patient gets sick, in general, complications that are dangerous or even deadly can be prevented with a history of previous immunizations.
Immune (immunity) itself is another term for immunity. What is meant by "immune individuals" and "non-immune individuals" may be related to their immunization status. Indivisu who have received immunizations for certain types of diseases can be said to have immunity against these diseases. It could also mean that immune individuals are those who have already suffered from certain diseases so that they already have immunity to the germs concerned if they are re-infected at a later date.
For example, individuals who have received varicella (chickenpox) immunization or have had chickenpox for example, are said to have immunity against chickenpox. On the other hand, individuals who have never received chickenpox immunization and have never had chickenpox, can be said to have no immunity against chickenpox.
However, in fact the terms immune and non-immune individuals are not commonly used terms. Therefore, you can reconfirm with the author of the book or article in question what is meant by his words.
I hope this helps.
