Active Immunity -The body reacts by producing antibodies to fight the pathogen. The antibody levels in the blood will rise and the boy will also retain a memory of of how to make these antibodies if it comes across the pathogen again. This process provides long-term protection from many diseases.Passive Immunity -Advantage: gives immediate protection against the pathogen.Disadvantage : Immunity is short lived and if the person encounters the disease again at a later date, the body has no memory of developing antibodies itself. This type of vaccination is only used in a few cases to give quick protection when it is thought the person may already have the disease.

How are different active and passive?

Active immunity is generated by your body. So you get active immunity as a result of infections or due to vaccines. Passive immunity is not generated by your body. Here the antibodies are to be supplied. Child gets the antibodies from mother. Alternately you get the antibodies via injections. The effect of active immunity is long lasting. The effect of passive immunity is short lived. So the active immunity is considered as better. The passive immunity has one advantage. It is available with immediate effect, while it takes about two to three weeks, before the effects of active immunity is available.
