Differentiate between inactivated vaccines & attenuated vaccines

Inactivated vaccines are vaccines with killed microorganisms whereas attenuated vaccines have altered, live microorganisms.

Inactivated viral vaccine

contains dead viruses

Attenuated viral vaccine

contains live but altered viruses where the viruses can still replicate but not cause disease

Outline the sequence of events that occur in the body in response to a vaccination

Macrophages process the antigen for B-cells & T-cells. IgM is produced about 7 days after antigen presentation. IgG is produced about 14 days then declines. Upon subsequent exposure or booster vaccine IgG is produced within 2-3 days & cell-mediated immunity via T-cells is initiated.
