The vaccine contains pathogens, weakening the power of pathogens and putting them in the body, we will create a force against the pathogen, "antibody". Next, when the same pathogen enters the body, it suppresses that it increases. The work of suppressing this increase is called "immunity". Vaccines have problems. One of them is "side effects".
