Immunity and Host Defence

The immune system consist of an innate (non-specific) and an adaptive (specific) response. Innate immunity is constitutively present and is mobilized immediately following infection. Innate immunity is termed non-specific because the protective response is the same regardless of the initiating infection. This is in contrast to the adaptive immune system which is slower, responds specifically, and generates an immunological memory. Before vaccines, people became immune only by actually getting a disease and surviving it. Immunizations are an easier and less risky way to become immune.
