Question: 

What is vaccine? Can it be used for to treat an infected or diseased person?

Answer: 

Vaccines are products that protect people against many diseases that can be very dangerous and even cause death. They are products that produce immunity to a specific disease. When you are immune to a disease, it means you are protected against that disease (you can be exposed to it without becoming sick). Vaccines do not treat an infected person. They prevent the person from being sick in the first place. You can find more information here. If you have more questions, please talk with your health care provider.
