Weโ€™re talking about ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป – injecting a weakened/killed microbe to stimulate the immune system against that category of microbes, thereby preventing disease.

The word ๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ comes from the Latin parts ๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป (meaning โ€œcowโ€) & -๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ (โ€œtoโ€).

The term ๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ is a back-formation from “vaccination”, first used in 1803, 3 years after Edward Jenner coined “๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป” (1800).
