All vaccination are made from the Pathogen that cause the illness and there are 5 option of vaccination:
1. Dead pathogen in case of Bacteria or "dead" = inactivated virus ( virus is not actually a living organism by definition).
2.weak pathogen= a strain of the pathogen that are less virulent(=violent) or been weakened by artificial means.
3. An antigen ( usually a protein or glucoprotein molecule on the cell membrane) that have been manufactured by genetic engineering.
4.Toxoeid = a bacterial toxin that have inactivated by artificial medical means.
5. Using another pathogen that coincidently have some antigen in common with the Pathogen, Marek's and Small pox are an exampels.

In vaccination you NEVER use the virulent pathogen as is !  

Toxin, allergen are materials and not organisms
Virus- is not an organism by the biological definition.
Fungi, bacteria are organisms.
By using active vaccination we do not need the antibodies themselves, because they are shortliving and we get the vaccination before the exposer to the patohgen, but we need the memory cells that stay for long and protect from the pathogen when we are exposed to.
