According to the World Health Organization (WHO), vaccination and immunization are related, although one essentially describes an action while the other describes the effect.
By the WHO definition:
Vaccination employs vaccines to stimulate the body’s own immune system to protect the person against subsequent infection or disease.
Immunization is the process whereby a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine.
Immunization confers immunity. As such, a person can become immune to a disease when the body is exposed to the disease-causing organism (pathogen) and develops antibodies to fight it.
Although inoculation and vaccination are sometimes used interchangeably, one is ultimately an act and the other is the process that spurs immunity.
Inoculation is the act of introducing a vaccine into a person's body. It can be used in other contexts, such as when a culture is inoculated with body fluids (such as from a nasal swab) to test for the presence of a bacterium or virus.
Vaccination is the process of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into a nostril.
Next Phase of COVID Vaccination is To Create Public Pressure, You Are Selfish and Destroying Herd Immunity if You Do Not Cooperate
“To get America to herd immunity, being vaccinated should be incentivized. If that fails, CNN’s Michael Smerconish proposes the government and businesses should consider measures to exclude the unvaccinated from the workplace and events.”

Well, I'd call it gene therapy to be more precise, but I'm no expert by far.
To be fair, if you have to say vaccine, say the unlicensed and unapproved experimental vaccines that haven't undergone long term human trails. It's a mouthful, but gets the point across.
Immunization: The Basics
Definition of Terms
Let’s start by defining several basic terms:
Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.
Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.
Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.
Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

ETA - Both my MIL and FIL have been in the hospital (3) times since their 2nd vaccination. FIL is bleeding from every orifice, high white and low red blood cell counts. Just today they had to give him a complete blood transfusion. He was perfectly fine before the covid shots. Same for my MIL, and then her white blood cell count dropped to dangerously low and they wouldn't let her out of the hospital. They are both absolutely convinced it was the covid shots that did it. Neither one of them had EVER been in the hospital before this. Seriously!
Both of my parents have passed, but I would never wish this on them!! This is complete madness, and I've heard it more with more people than I can count! The above is just direct personal experience, not second hand.
I don't care what anybody says, this "vaccine" is flat out DANGEROUS! You can rail on me, flame me all you want, but I will NEVER get this shot!

He said they passed away, so they didn't recover at all. Which is really sad!
