Inactivated Vaccine

Inactivated vaccines contain dead bacteria or viruses, which are inactivated during the process of vaccine production. These vaccines do not offer strong antibody protection like live vaccines. Replication is not possible with inactivated vaccines, and therefore, a second dose is vital for a protective immune response. Polio, hepatitis A, and rabies vaccines are examples of inactivated vaccines.
