Hey, Mom. How do vaccines work?
I'm glad you asked. Vaccines are like the recipes in a cookbook.
If a baker wants to bake a big chocolate cake, he needs to know how to make it---what are the ingredients? Bake time?
With the cookbook, the chef will know to memorize the recipe for the Big Chocolatey Cake to successfully avoid mistakes.
I'd love to bake a cake...
Without the cookbook (vaccine), the chef may face the risk of over-beating ingredients and cause clumps (pathogens) to ruin his batter (immune system).
Oh no! I don't know how to make the Chocolatey Cake!
However, with the help a cookbook recipe (vaccine and its antigens), the baker will hapily train himself to learn how to prevent disaster (pathogens) from causing other mishaps (diseases).
Oh...So that's how long you stir it for...
Yay! I made the best cake!
That's why vaccines are important. They train our immune systems to recognize and deal with pathogens in order to stay healthy.
Wow! Vaccines are awesome!
