Target Groups For Vaccination . Persons at Increased Risk for Complications. According to ACIP, vaccination is recommended for the following groups of persons who are at increased risk for complications from influenza: 1 . persons aged â¥ 65 years; . residents of nursing homes and other ch…ronic-care facilities that house persons of any age who have chronic medical conditions; . adults and children who have chronic disorders of the pulmonary or cardiovascular systems, including asthma; . adults and children who have required regular medical follow-up or hospitalization during the preceding year because of chronic metabolic diseases (including diabetes mellitus), renal dysfunction, hemoglobinopathies, or immunosuppression (including immunosuppression caused by medications or by human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]); . children and adolescents (aged 6 months-18 years) who are receiving long-term aspirin therapy and, therefore, might be at risk for developing Reye syndrome after influenza infection; . women who will be pregnant during the influenza season; and . children aged 6-23 months. .

Answer inoculation means - Introduction of viable cells, usually in a culture media, or laboratory animals under controlled environmental conditions. Where else, Vaccination means - Introduction of pathogens or part of the pathogen without their virulence factor ( In other words, the structu…ral composition is maintained and the pathogenicity is disrupted ) (MORE)
The trivalent seasonal flu vaccine protects against the three strains of the flu that are expected to be causing infections in that flu season. The three flu viruses selected usually change each year. The vaccines don't protect against all strains, so it's not a guarantee, but is recommended for all… people (except infants under six months, those with allergies, etc.- see list of those who should not get a flu vaccination in the related questions below). It is especially recommended that children, older adults, and people with chronic medical conditions get vaccinated every year before flu season. There is a new vaccine in the 2012-2013 flu season that is quadravalent, i.e., it has protection against four strains of the flu (FluMist Quadravalent). There are formulations of these vaccines for administration three different ways: The standard IM (intramuscular) flu shot/jab, a new (in 2011) vaccine for ID (intradermal) administration (in the layers of the skin), and the two nasal sprays. The IM and ID shots contain killed virus and are safe for use by most people (see exceptions in related question below). The nasal spray is made with live, weakened virus, and is, therefore, recommended only for those aged 2-49 years who are not pregnant. The people with suppressed immune systems are also usually advised to use only vaccines made with inactive "dead" viruses. For the 2012-2013 flu season in the US, this year's trivalent seasonal flu vaccines will protect against the following three strains of influenza: . Type A/California/7/2009 (H1N1) ~ the "swine flu vaccine", . Type A/Victoria/361/2011 (H3N2), and . Type B/Wisconsin/1/2010. There is also a new vaccine in the 2012-2013 flu season that is FluMist Quadrivalent .\nThis new vaccine includes two Type B strains of flu instead of one. It \ncontains B strains from both the B/Yamagata/16/88 and the \nB/Victoria/2/87 lineages in addition to the same strains of the Type A \nviruses (H1N1 and H3N2) that are included in the trivalent vaccines for \nthis season. See the related questions below for more info. For the 2012-2013 Flu season in the US, the following vaccines for influenza are approved for use: \n . AFLURIA Trivalent made by CSL/Merck \n \n .

A vaccination is when a person is introduced to the whole or subunits of the disease itself, either in it's dead, weakened, or genetically altered state. Vaccines can also be the toxins that the disease produces. An immunization is a pre-made antibody that your body is supplied with.
Vaccines are injected into our bodies so that our bodies can build antigens to combat a certain virus. They are usually created from dead viruses, or, most recently, they can be live viruses that have been synthetically altered so that they adapt to cold environments. These cold-adapted viruses are …then injected through the nose, where your body starts to build up antigens. Since our lungs are very warm, the cold-adapted viruses will not infect our lungs as they will die in warm environments. In contrast, antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infection. They WILL NOT treat viral infections, such as the flu virus, H1N1, or the common cold. Many people think that antibiotics can treat the cold or flu, but in reality, they are harming the users because (1) they don't make the user feel any better, and (2) their use of antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance, so in the future, if the user had a bacteria infection, the antibiotic may not work for them since the bacteria may be resistant to the antibiotic. If that was too much information, the most important thing to know is: an antibiotic treats bacteria infection and a vaccine helps a person build resistance to a virus (vaccines don't kill viruses).

Vaccination is used to prevent a disease and medication is used to treat a disease that someone has.
Chickenpox vaccine prevents, but does not cure, chickenpox. However, chickenpox vaccine can be giving within five days of exposure to reduce the risk of developing the disease.
There are two types of flu vaccine - the injection, which contains killed virus, and the nasal spray, which contains live, weakened flu virus as the antigen that sparks the immune response. . About two weeks after the vaccination adults are protected against the specific types of flu virus include…d in the vaccine. There are usually 3 types in the seasonal flu vaccinations. . Some possible side effects of the vaccine are soreness at the injection site, achiness in muscles, or a very mild fever. These effects usually only last one or two days, or not at all. . Children over 6 months and under 10 years usually receive a series of two flu vaccinations about a month apart, since their immune systems aren't able to respond with full immunization without the "booster". Usually two to three weeks after the second vaccination, they will be fully protected from those specific virus infections as long as they have an otherwise healthy immune system. .

In general, these terms are used interchangeably, but there is a difference. Immunity is what you get when you are exposed to a disease, either by contracting the disease or being vaccinated against it. Your body is then "immune" to the disease because your immune system know what that virus "look…s like". Vaccination is getting the dose of vaccine to get immunity. vaccination is an individual event; immunization refers to a population. immunzation program vs. Johnny got vaccinated The difference between vaccination and immunity is a vaccination is an inoculation with any vaccine or toxoid to establish resistence to a specific infectious disease. An imunity is a response to infectious diseases that keeps the body from being effected by it. Vaccination ' word originates from 'vaccinia' meaning 'cow . As we know Dr Edward Jenner first invented the vaccine against the small pox by injecting the fluid of cow pox to individuals and in the turn, people did not developed 'small pox'. So this was a kind of 'active immuniztion and we know 'Immunization' could be active and passive' both. So 'Vaccination' is an 'Active Immunization' while Immunization could be both-Active and Passive' (MORE)
The influenza vaccine has been used since 1945, however, I do not know who invented it or when it was actually invented.
Like other vaccines, the chickenpox vaccine prevents children fromcontracting the virus that causes chickenpox. Chickenpox isharmless to most children but can be deadly and can lead to thedisease shingles later in life.
vaccine: a vaccine teaches your immune system howto fight an infection antiserum :an antiserum either neutralise theinfection or stimulate the immune system
Salman Khaliq Bajwa from PAF-KIET email@example.com The difference between antibodies and vaccines are; 1. Antibodies are micro organisms in our body for our defense. Vaccines are diluted living or dead antigens. 2. Antibodies are natural. Vaccines are artificial, 3. Antibodies kill the …bacteria, viruses and toxic substances in our body. Vaccines does not kill but it actually activates the antibodies in our body. (MORE)
A vaccine is the medicine used to prevent specific infections. A vaccination is how the medicine is given to you. "I'm wondering, what are the ingredients in the flu vaccine."

"a "vaccine" is the thing you get vaccinated WITH.. a "vaccination" is the process of being vaccinated." WRONG the real answer is that vaccinations are naturally weakened form of the virus, this was made by edward Jenner and was named vaccination for some stupid latin reason. The vaccine how…ever ( made by Louis pasteur) is an Artificially weakened form of a virus and Louis pasteur named it in honor of edward Jenner's vaccination. (MORE)
typhim is a commercial name of typhoid vaccine. Typhim ViÂ®, Typhoid Vi Polysaccharide Vaccine, produced by Sanofi Pasteur SA, for intramuscular use, is a sterile solution containing the cell surface Vi polysaccharide extracted from Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi, S typhi Ty2 strain.
If you're immune to something, your system is resistant to it. However, if you're vaccinated, you're not immediately immune, and in fact, it may not help you at all. When you're vaccinated, you're simply given a shot. I believe most shots take a while to take effect. Some don't take effect at all.
The production itself is not usually difficult as long as they are able to find a suitable strain of the influenza virus to use that is readily able to be grown in culture to produce the seed stock for the vaccine manufacture. Deciding which particular strain or mutation to use as the seed that will… best match the active virus that is circulating in the wild in the most places at the time, and that also can be easily grown in the laboratory is the difficult part of the process in most years that new vaccines are needed for new virus strains and mutations.

Because the rhinovirus (which is one virus that causes the common cold) mutates and changes its structure extremely frequently as do the other viruses that cause the common cold, such as Coronaviruses, and any of the others of hundreds of viruses that cause colds. While influenza strains also mutate…, it is not as quickly as cold viruses that almost constantly are mutating, resulting in several dozen active viruses in any one locality. In addition, influenza has proven reasonably easy to grow in labs for study and for vaccine production, while cultivating rhinoviruses has proven very difficult. (MORE)
The vaccination was created by using a small amount of the illness and ading things to it to make a cure, sort of what they do for snake poison

an antibiotic is used to help rid your body after you already have the infection. A vaccine is to prevent an infection from ever entering your body. Antibiotics basically fight off whatevers not supposed to be there after your already sick. Vaccines help your body build antibodies on its own to make… your immune system tougher so you arent able to catch things as easily example - flu, small pox, ect. (MORE)
Yes. Because then u can't get the chicken poxs. And that's good! Chicken poxs suck! I imagine. I'm 9 and I had the vaxcine and I hadn't had it. And I never will. So yes get the vaxcine! Most people who get chickenpox vaccine have never had chickenpox. The vaccine will give you protection against get…ting chickenpox. (MORE)
Injections are given for treatment while vaccines are given to produce antbodies to protect the recipients from specific diseases
Vaccines are given to help prevent an illness or infection, providing primary immunity. Once one has an infection, antibiotics may be given to help your body kill off an infection.
Vaccine is given to prevent a certain disease while antibiotic is mainly given to treat infections that are already present. However, some antibiotics are also given to serve as prophylaxis.
In the US the vaccine for the H1N1/09 pandemic swine flu was provided free from the US government. However, if you had a private provider (doctor, hospital, pharmacy, etc.) administer your vaccination instead of a public health professional from the local or state government, then you may have been …charged for their administration of the vaccine. The seasonal flu vaccine is usually either paid by insurance with preventive and wellness coverage, or charged to the individual directly. (MORE)
If the influenza vaccine is to be made from a live virus, then the strain is selected, grown, and then weakened (usually chemically) to be able to trigger an immune response but not be strong enough to cause the infection. If it is to be made using a "dead" or inert virus that also does the same to …trigger immune response and antibody production without causing infection, then the virus is grown and then made inactive before being used in the vaccine. Once the virus particles needed are produced one of the two ways above, they are purified, isolated and combined with administration medium that is either for injection or for use with a mist/inhalation administration medium. There are sometimes adjuvants added that will make a little go a long way (these are not used in the US flu vaccines). This way smaller doses are needed and so more vaccine can be distributed to more people in shorter times. This is helpful if the strain is not easily or quickly grown and vaccine is needed quickly. There are also preservatives added to maintain the purity of the vaccine. This is needed especially in multi-dose vials that are not used entirely upon opening of the sterile vials. Single dose vials and syringes are usually available without the addition of these preservatives for people with special needs or allergies to the preservatives. For a full list of the common ingredients used today in flu vaccines, see the related question below about the specific ingredients in the swine flu vaccine. (MORE)
"Live" vaccines contain weakened samples of the pathogen to be immunized against which are chemically treated to make them unable to make you sick, but will still cause an immune response to create the desired immunity. These are called Live Attenuated Vaccines (attenuated just means weakened). "Dea…d" vaccines have partial particles or totally inactivated/"dead" samples of the pathogen. With virus vaccines, usually live vaccines are given by intra-nasal spray and dead vaccines are given by injection. (MORE)
No, you can only be immune to chickenpox from having the disease or the vaccine.
Yes, there is no harm, although no real benefit, in getting the chickenpox vaccine if you've already had chickenpox. Normally, chickenpox yields lifelong immunity.
They are both pharmaceuticals. It's just how they are used that's difference. One is for prevention and one is for treatment once you're already has the disease. In term of bang for the buck, vaccines generally have been the most effective pharmaceuticals in changing the prevalent of a disease in a …population. (MORE)
Breakthrough chickenpox -- mild chickenpox that may occur in someone who was vaccinated -- typically is much easier than chickenpox in unvaccinated patients. Typically there will be fewer than 50 bumps in breakthrough chickenpox, while chickenpox in unvaccinated patients may have 250 to 500 bumps.
Vaccines use different types of vaccination technology - Polysaccharide and Conjugate are different types of technologies. It is generally considered that Conjugate vaccines provide superior long-term protection versus Polysaccharide vaccines because of the mechanism by which they create an antibody… response. While polysaccharide vaccines may offer individual protection, they do not provide the same level of "herd immunity" (i.e. non-immunized individuals provided protection due to number of immunized individulas in community) provided by Conjugate vaccines.

The difference is simple: Antibiotics is used to help strengthen your immune system and rid the area of harmful bacteria, while the vaccination is to prevent a disease from entering your system at all. But, there aren't vaccines for everything and antibiotics can cure VIRAL diseases, caused by viru…ses. (MORE)
Vaccine and injection is different as a vaccine is an injection for diseases like chicken pox and an injection is not a vaccine as it is used in common diseases like cold and cough.
a vaccine is a little dose of the disease that your body can handle. when the body is injected with it it will form antibodies that will be ready for the real disease when it comes while the serum is the antibodies themselves.
Perhaps. It takes a few weeks for the immune system to build up a protection, so if you are exposed very soon after the vaccine, it is possible.
The recommendations in the US are to get the first dose between 12 and 15 months old, and the second dose between ages 4 and 6 years. It can also be used to prevent infection if given within five days of exposure. If a child or adult hasn't been vaccinated yet, s/he should get the first dose now,… and the second dose at least three months apart if the patient is under 13, and at least four weeks apart for patients 13 and older. If someone has had just one dose, they should get a second dose. See related link for schedules. (MORE)

Patients thirteen and over must wait at least 28 days between the first and second chickenpox vaccine. Patients under thirteen must wait at least three months between the first and second doses.
There are 2 types of vaccines: (1) Live ("attenuated", or bred to be harmless) (2) Killed (dead disease-causing particles) Live vaccines can be more effective, don't usually need 'booster' shots later to make them work better, but are less able to be given to immunocompromised or pregnant …people as they are still alive. Killed vaccines are less effective, often requiring boosters, but can be given to immunocompromised people and (often) pregnant ladies. They are used with an "adjuvant", or a substance that helps them work better (makes your body more able to make antibodies to them faster). Both types of vaccines have 'epitopes', or molecules that your body recognises. These epitopes are the SAME as what is on the actual disease-causing particles. This is why they work - your body sees the "HARMLESS" particles and learns to recognise them, or creates "antibodies" that help your body respond to the actual thing when it appears. It takes time to create these antibodies, so if you can make them BEFORE the actual disease finds its way into your body, you can respond much faster and destroy the virus particles before they can cause you harm. The type of vaccine depends on what has been developed. There are benefits of both ways, but it is not always easy to do both. Side note: occasionally, you will hear about how "vaccines are horrible, and cause more harm than good". Most of the time, people use multi-resistant organisms as examples, however, these organisms become resistant to ANTIBIOTICS, and NOT vaccines! Having antibodies is natural, unlike many antibiotics! They are NOT comparable! Antibodies are a post-infection method of disease control, whereas vaccines prevent the disease from establishing. Thus, vaccines have in the past been used rather successfully to rid the world of several diseases! (Which we can ALL be extremely grateful for!!!!!) Another poorly-used example was that of the smallpox vaccine causing many deaths. Reasons why this example is tragically misused is that it was the first-ever attempt at vaccination in recorded history (we no longer live in such an age where we must rely on random human-testing of live NON-attenuated pathogen injection!). Smallpox protection included injecting pus from the lesions of an infected person (or another vaccinated person) to create antibodies. Case in point: we no longer inject pus into people... it's a good way to spread other infections, and is less reliable in results. We no longer live in the 'dark ages' of immunology. The first attempts at reaching space failed badly, and yet nobody seems to be boycotting space travel now that science and technology has improved, so please be open-minded if anyone ever tells you that in vaccines, in general, are "bad". Okay? :) (MORE)
Some patients who get chickenpox vaccine will have a mild case of chickenpox with very few lesions as a result. A full-blown case is not typical.
Shingles vaccine and chickenpox vaccine have the same content, but the dose is higher in the shingles vaccine.

A single dose of chickenpox vaccine is 80-85% effective at preventing chickenpox. A second dose of vaccine will increase the effectiveness. Breakthrough chickenpox (a mild case occurring in vaccinated people) is possible, but it's much less severe and less dangerous than natural chickenpox infection…. Shingles is possible after chickenpox vaccine as well, but is less common than in those who had natural chickenpox disease. (MORE)
