How does dengue vaccine(Qdenga) work?

hi Doctor, ive always been curious as to how vaccines work, and is it true that it is that we are actually inserting a virus into our body system?

Good afternoon!

Thanks for your question. People can be nervous about the vaccination process, so it can be useful to familiarize yourself with what happens when you vaccinate. In this particular case, we’ll look into the Qdenga vaccine.

Generally, vaccination works by inserting a weakened version of the virus into your body. This causes no particular harm for the general majority of people, and prompts the body to create antibodies that will fight off the real virus.

Qdenga works by stimulating the immune system to produce antibodies against the dengue virus. The vaccine contains weakened versions of the four dengue serotypes, which are responsible for causing the dengue disease. Their presence in the body causes no real harm for most people, but does incite the creation of specific antibodies that can fight off against the real virus in the future.

For a more specific explanation of how the Qdenga vaccine works, you can consult a healthcare professional, and even schedule a Qdenga vaccination to protect yourself and your loved ones.
