You think you have a bacterial infection. Would you ask for a vaccination against the bacteria? Why or why not

    Rah is correct. If you already have a bacterial infection vaccination would not do much. .The only exception is passive vaccination which is the infusion of specially produced antibodies to the particular antigen. This, however offers no long term immunity and is only generally considered in the immunocompromised. Depending on the severity of the infection you may need antibiotics or your immune system may take care of it.

    No,vaccination only prevents the disease,it will not cure infection. so rather antibiotic is the best choice if bacterial infection is confirmed.

    It's a little late for a vaccination if you already have the infection.
