You are literally covered in staph and strep and e coli, and all sorts of dubious characters that are intent on using you, and your body’s many resources, to feed themselves, find shelter, and reproduce as much as they want.

So your body has developed a three-part policy toward these shady customers, and its enforcement is handled by your immune system.
