Can active immunity be produced by being injected with gamma globulin injections?

    No, because the antibodies were not made by the body.

    It's a passive immunity that does not stay once the gamma globulin is used up.

    Since the B cells did not proliferate into clones => plasma cells => memory cells, no memory is built up in the system, and if the body is infected again, it will react to the infection as if it was the first time.
