Vaccinations At what point should it be a requirement for parents to vaccinate their children for school purposes? Vaccinations have been a topic of discussion for the past 10-15 years. Some parents belief vaccinations are the best thing out there since slice bread for a couple reasons. First off because you introduce your kid to the disease in a small dose and allow the body to recognize it and fight it off. Second because it allows the kid to avoid being introduced to this disease in the real world and being effected in a major way. On the other hand some parents believe that these vaccinations is a ghastly ways to introduce a disease to the body. They believe we have immune systems that are meant to encounter these diseases and fight them off naturally. Human vaccinations have been around 3,000 + years and have had both negative and positive effects for people. Vaccinations are a simple form of presenting the body to a new disease that has appeared in society. Some vaccinations that have been initiated in todays world are H1N1, swine flu, bird flu, chicken pox and many more. Schools of todays era have started to require kids to be vaccinated before attending the school for a very good reason. These schools do not want this diseases to effect the school and have a tragic decline in number of students due to the illness. If these kids are vaccinated their chance of receiving the diseases drops tremendously. That’s not to say that the child will not get the…
doorknobs and stairs so of course their health is a concern. Vaccinations are not new to our generation; they have been around for years. Small Pox Vaccinations began in the early 1800s. (Durbach) The Vaccination Act of 1853 ordered mandatory vaccination for infants up to 3 months old, and, the Act of 1867 extends this age requirement to 14 years. (Durbach) While back then it was mandatory we can now elect to opt out from these vaccinations. We should not have to think about whether or not we are going…

6 How are stem cells cultured in the lab? Cell culture - Scientists isolate human embryonic stem cells by transferring the inner cell mass of a blastocyst into a plastic laboratory culture dish containing a nutrient broth called a culture medium. As cells divide, they spread over the dish's surface. The inner surface of the culture…
“Edward Jenner invented vaccination, established a safe treatment for preventing smallpox, and began the field of immunology.”(Bauman, 17) For the these reasons I am doing this case study on who the amazing Edward Jenner was, the worldwide vaccination and eradication of Smallpox, and how immunology has advanced since the eighteenth century.
“For thousands of years, smallpox was one of the world’s most dreaded scourges.” (Saffer, 8) During the Golden Age of Microbiology, Edward Jenner discovered…
who's infected is a good way to spread smallpox. - Also spreads through contact with bodily fluids or contaminated clothing. It's most contagious 7 - 10 days after rash first appears (more on that soon), but stays contagious until rash disappears. Humans are the only known hosts of smallpox (though monkeys have been infected in a lab setting). After infection, the virus spreads to the mouth and throat areas, and local lymph nodes. Eventually it spreads into the bloodstream. IV. Symptoms There are…
previously declining infectious diseases will begin to rise in the numbers again. Dr. Cynthia Cristofani, in the documentary Frontline: The Vaccine War, said the following:
Many of these germs belong to us only, which means if we can make enough humans immune simultaneously, we could eradicate them. And then, yes, we could stop vaccinating. There was actually a campaign hoping to eradicate polio from planet Earth, as we did smallpox. And notice we're not vaccinating for smallpox anymore because…
3) Nervous/Endocrine System
The it in the endocrine system is a hormone. A hormone is a chemical messenger, or a substance that carries messages and instructions to cells. They influence almost every cell and organ in the human body. Hormones are secreted by cells that act to regulate the activity of other cells in the body. Hormones regulate growth, development, behavior, reproduction, metabolism, and the water and mineral balance in our bodies. They also help maintain homeostasis…
Measles Vaccination Campaign
By: Haley Willett
Measles is a very dangerous infection that is caused by a virus when people cough, sneeze, share food and drinks, other contact between people. It can also travel airborne, which can result in more of a spread of the virus. In some instances, you can still receive it even when the infected person does not cough or sneeze. Measles is most prominent in young children around the age of five and younger but still can be seen in teenagers and adults.

Program to inform you about the importance of the school-based Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program for males and females. This school-based vaccination program is being provided to protect males and females against a range of cancers and disease caused by HPV. This vaccine is offered on a voluntary basis to all girls and boys in Year 7.
We initially encourage all parents to keep in mind some important considerations. First of all, human papillomavirus (HPV) is a highly contagious virus transmitted…
