After birth,breastfedbabies get the continued benefits of additionalantibodies in breast milk. But in both cases, the protection is temporary.Immunization (vaccination) is the process by which vaccines areintroduced into the body before infection sets in. Vaccines are administered toinduce immunity thereby causing the recipient’s immune system to react to thevaccine that produces antibodies to fight infection.
