Brief Answer:
Approximately 2 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Normally for those vaccines that consist of a single dose (means you should get it only one time), it will take approximately 2 weeks for the body to become immune. This means that if you get exposed to the disease earlier, you still have the risk to get sick.

For those vaccines that are taken many times, that means with more than just one shot; it will take longer for your body to fully became immune. It will not become immune if you have not taken all of the shots that are recommended.

If you have other questions, please feel free to post them.

Best Regards,
Dr. Eni
