Just like the Greek hero Achilles who, by being dipped in the river Styx, was protected from the dangers of battle, our body also creates a protection when it receives a vaccine. The immunizers are training so that the immune system can react if it suffers an attack.
In the second episode of Reply Immune, Folha’s podcast on how vaccines have changed the world, journalist Reinaldo José Lopes explains how immunizing agents protect the organism of billions of people individually and, more importantly, collectively.
For this, it counts on the participation of the pharmacist and scientific publisher, Laura Marise de Freitas; biomedical doctor Lucas Zanandrez; and Cristina Bonorino, professor at the Federal University of Health Sciences of Porto Alegre and member of the scientific committee of the SBI (Brazilian Society of Immunology).
