How does our body fight off infections?

Our body fights off infections with two parts of our immune system. One has fast, but weak intake and does not destroy the infection. The second immune system will target pathogens, but takes longer to fight off the infection, which is why we'll get sick. When the second system is exposed to an infection previously, its memory response will kick in to fight rapidly and effectively.
