Vaccine

A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease.

The agent stimulates the body's immune system to recognize the agent as foreign, destroy it, and "remember" it, so that the immune system can more easily recognize and destroy any of these microorganisms that it later encounters.
