The immune system is the body's means of protection against microorganisms and other "foreign" substances. It is composed of two major parts. One component, B lymphocytes, produces antibodies, proteins that attack "foreign" substances and cause them to be removed from the body; this is sometimes called the humoral immune system. The other component consists of special white blood cells called T lymphocytes, which can attack "foreign" substances directly; this is sometimes called the cellular immune system. It takes time for both components of the immune system to develop. The only protections a newborn will have are the antibodies that have transferred from the mother to the baby before birth. T lymphocytes become protective, and antibodies are developed after a person is exposed to specific "foreign" threats.

Over a lifetime, the immune system develops an extensive library of identified substances and microorganisms that are cataloged as “threat” or “not threat.” Vaccinations utilize this process to add to the library. They expose a person’s immune system to weakened or inactivated forms of bacteria and viruses that can no longer cause disease, so that the person’s immune system will recognize them and create antibodies that will be ready to protect against the infectious forms of these microorganisms if the person comes in contact with them in the future.
