Today's winner is: CARL GRISSOM, 13, Fort Worth, Texas A vaccination is an injection a person receives to protect him from disease. Today people can be protected from such diseases as smallpox, polio, diptheria, whoop'n^ cough, tetanus, measles, yellow fever, and many others. The material given in a vaccination is called a vaccine. To understand how it works, we must understand how the body builds defenses against disease. Certain diseases are caused by germs, which may be bacteria or viruses. When disease germs enter the body, substances called antibodies are formed. These appear in the blood and oppose the action of the germs. For each kind of disease germ a specific antibody is formed. People are vaccinated to cause the formation of protective' antibodies. Different types of vaccine are used to bring about this result. One type of vaccine is a preparation containing live, but weakened, disease germs. The weakened gemis cause antibody formation w i t h-o u t causing serious illness. Another type of vaccine contains germs that have been killed by heat, chemicals, or ultraviolet light. Even though the germs have been killed, they stimulate the formation of antibodies. A third type of vaccine acts slightly differently. The germs of certain diseases release poisons, called toxins, into the body — and it is the toxins which do the harm. The body responds by producing a special kind of antibody, called an antitoxin. To stimulate the formation of antitoxins, people are vaccinated with a preparation called a toxoid. It is a toxin which has been treated to be safe and it produces antitoxins in the body.
