Types Of Vaccines: Protecting Ourselves With Science And The Heart.​

Welcome back! In our quest to take care of our health and well-being, it is essential to know the tools we have at our fingertips. Vaccines are a clear example of science and hope working together to protect us. In this continuation, we will dive into the fascinating world of the different types of vaccines available. Let’s get ready for an informative journey full of interesting facts and, above all, full of the certainty that together we can protect ourselves.

Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines

These vaccines, such as those developed against COVID-19, are an exciting scientific breakthrough. They work by providing instructions to our cells to produce a harmless protein that triggers an immune response. Our immune system recognizes this protein as foreign and creates defenses to fight it. If we ever encounter the actual virus, our immune system will be prepared to defend itself.

Subunit protein vaccines

In this type of vaccine, only a part of the virus or bacteria that is harmless by itself is used. The protein is introduced into our body and our immune system learns to recognize it and create defenses against it. This way, if we are confronted with the full virus in the future, we will be ready to fight it.

Inactivated or attenuated virus vaccines

These vaccines use the virus or bacteria itself, but previously weakened or inactivated, so that it cannot cause us the full disease. By exposing our immune system to a safe version of the pathogen, it learns to fight it off and keep us protected in the event of an actual infection.

Viral vector vaccines

In this approach, a different, non-harmful virus (vector) is modified to carry genetic material from the target virus or bacterium. Once the vector enters our cells, they produce the desired protein and our immune system responds by creating defenses against it.

Science and hope

In this exciting tour of the different types of vaccines, we have discovered how science and hope come together to protect us. Each of these vaccines is a valuable piece in the puzzle of our health and well-being. Through vaccination, we step forward to face any challenge with confidence. Let’s continue to move forward together, confident that protection is within our reach. In our hands is the power to protect ourselves, our families and our community. Let’s move forward with the certainty that, united, we can take care of ourselves and protect ourselves!
