Why is a person with diphtheria injected with anti-diphtheria serum and not a vaccine?

1) when the vaccine is administered, the body independently begins to produce antibodies, this is how an active artificial immunity is formed;
2) if an infection has occurred, then there is no time for a protective vaccination, it is necessary to inject the patient with a therapeutic serum, which contains ready-made antibodies.
