Solution

The correct option is C

It creates immunity in the body


Vaccination creates immunity in the body. When the immune system first sees an infectious microbe, it responds against it and then remembers it specifically. So, the next time that particular microbe or its close relatives enter the body, the immune system responds with even greater vigour. This eliminates the infection even more quickly than the first time around. This is the principle of vaccination.
