What's so important about dog vaccines? What do they do, anyway? In Laymen's terms, a vaccination is a small dose of a disease. The introduction of this small amount of the illness will boost the dog's immune system and help it to better protect itself from the disease in the future.
When the antigen or infectious agent enters the animal's body, it is recognized as foreign and potentially dangerous. Then, the body creates antibodies that will bind to it and destroy the disease. And, even though the foreign invader is eliminated, the cells that produced the antibodies will remember it and will be able to respond much more quickly the next time the same invader enters the body.
