Vaccine adjuvants is a part of a vaccine that helps to create a stronger immune response in the patient’s body. Some vaccines prepared from weakened or dead germs contain naturally occurring adjuvants and aid the body produce a strong protective immune response. With the advancement of new and less reactogenic vaccine antigens, additionally comes the requirement for more viable adjuvants that will encourage the acceptance of adaptive immune responses. Vaccines made with adjuvants ensure the body to produce an immune response to protect the patient from the germ he or she is being vaccinated against. Vaccine adjuvants improve the body's immune response and often allow for smaller amounts of an inactivated virus or bacteria to be used in a vaccine. Aluminium salts, such as aluminium hydroxide, aluminium phosphate, and aluminium potassium sulphate have been used safely as adjuvant in vaccines.
