Opsonization

But why chances of infection with encapsulated organisms increase? same happens after splenectomy and the person requires vaccines against encapsulated organisms.. I tried finding out ..and found out that it has something to do with opsonization and the polysaccharide cell wall but didn't really get it. Someone with knowledge please explain.
