  • Antigens
  • T-cells
  • Macrophage = patrolling cell
  • Antigen

  • 1. Weakened version of disease injected into body in the form of a vaccine

  • White Blood Cells

  • Antigen
  • Antibody
  • 2. Antigens identifies it as a harmful, foreign substance. Body attempts to figure out how to fight it by using different immune cells.
  • Macrophages
  • Pathogens
  • 3. Macrophages find the few T and B cells that will make the right antibodies to counter the particular pathogen.
  • Antibody
  • 4. The right antibodies lock onto the antigens of the pathogen. This allows lymphocytes (white blood cells) to make more antibodies that clump and immobilise pathogens.
  • Antigen
  • Antibody
  • Antigen
  • 7. Macrophages find and engulf these pathogens and most lymphocytes die except a few which survive in the form of B cells called memory cells which remember which type of antibodies work against a certain pathogen/infection
  • B Memory Cells
  • 9. If you become exposed to the full-strength pathogen, the body is now able to destroy the pathogen much faster and more effectively due to memory cells of the pathogen that developed from the vaccination.
  • 15 years later...woooo...still haven't got chickenpox!
