Feedback:
The hepatitis B series produces passive immunity. Passive immunity occurs when antibodies are formed by the immune system of another person or animal and transferred to the host. Active immunity is produced by the person's own immune system in response to a disease caused by a specific antigen or administration of an antigen from a source outside the body, usually by injection. Innate or natural immunity, which is not produced by the immune system, includes the general protective mechanisms.
