Q & A- Vaccines and Boosters ?

Booster doses remind the immune system to prepare and protect against future infections. Memory antibody reserves produced by primary doses of vaccine, tends to decline over a period of time and need boosters, especially in case of vaccines with short lived immunity i.e. killed or inactivated vaccines. Boosters thus prevent infections. Memory cell alone are insufficient can’t prevent occurrence of the disease post rapid infections.
