What is immunisation? How is it different from vaccination?

Dear student, Immunization is a process of boosting immunity of an individual against certain known diseases and pathogens. This is achieved by administering certain immunizing agents like vaccines into the body of organism that can increase his/her immunity by several folds. In general, these terms are used interchangeably, but there is a difference. Immunity is what you get when you are exposed to a disease, either by contracting the disease or being vaccinated against it. Your body is then "immune" to the disease because your immune system know what that virus "looks like". Vaccination is getting the dose of vaccine to get immunity. vaccination is an individual event; immunization refers to a population. immunzation program vs. Johnny got vaccinated The difference between vaccination and immunity is a vaccination is an inoculation with any vaccine or toxoid to establish resistence to a specific infectious disease. An imunity is a response to infectious diseases that keeps the body from being effected by it. Thanks and regards
