Transcript of Vaccinations: Injecting the Future
Low grade fever
Social & Environmental Driving Forces
In the pre-vaccination era, smallpox was wiping out the majority of the population. It was very common to contract the disease making the environment outside anyone's home very unsafe to be in.
Effects on the Public
Risk of Disease
Why is Immunization Important?
When are vaccination records needed?
Reasons for Opposing Immunizations
Dr. Rajinder Basra
Effects on the Public
Vaccine- a product that produces immunity from a disease
can be administered through needle injections, by mouth, or by aerosol.
Vaccination- the injection of a killed or weakened organism that produces immunity in the body
Contain a little bit of a disease that is weak or dead.
helps your body's defense system build antibodies to fight off this kind of germ.
Your body can make antibodies in two ways: by getting the disease or by getting the vaccine.
Antibodies stay with you for a long time. They remember how to fight off the germ.
Birth- Hepatitis B (3 doses)
2 mo.- diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, Hib, polio, meningitis C
3 mo.- boosters for above
4 mo.- boosters for above
12-18 mo.- measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
4-5 yrs.- diphtheria, tetanus & polio booster, MMR & Hib booster
Eradication of disease
Protection of others
Save family time and money
Risk of Immunization
Benefits of Vaccination
Should Children Receive Mandatory Vaccinations
Vaccinations save Americans 68.8 billion dollars.
6.4 million children can be prevented from certain diseases
Save over $151 billion in treatment costs.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that 732,000 American children were saved from death and 322 million cases of childhood illnesses were prevented between 1994 and 2014 due to vaccination
Total amount spent on vaccines in 5 years: $3,032.87
50 dollars or more per month
Meningitis C- fever, rash, death
Hib- inflammation of the brain, throat swelling, suffocation, pneumonia, infection, death
Diphtheria- growth in the throat, suffocation, paralysis, death
Tetanus- muscle spasms, breathing problems, convulsions, death
Whooping cough- coughing fits, convulsions, coma, brain damage, death
800,000 babies die each year in developing countries from tetanus because of no vaccination
100 children died in the late 70s from no whooping cough vaccination
2000 cases of polio around the world in 1999
7500 Fijians dies of measles after a ship carrying the disease docked there
Elementary & secondary school
After school care
Camps and outdoor schools
College or university
Some types of travel
It isn't natural
The disease doesn't exist anymore
Vaccines don't work
Overload of child's immune system
Alternatives- breastfeeding or organic foods
Government shouldn't intervene on personal medical choices
Ingredients are harmful
Serious side effects
1 per million children
Dr. Andrew Wakefeild published a study stating a link between MMR and autism
Only 1 study of 12 children in Japan
Autism signs begin to show around the same time that MMR shot is given
Numerous studies have been conducted since
No link to MMR was found
October 20, 2015
Are there any questions?
Dr. Basra's Questions and Answers
Did you know that it is not a federal law to get vaccinated?
Are you aware on how much vaccinations cost per year?
Do you believe that vaccinations are safe?
Do you think that vaccines can cause certain disorders?
If vaccines caused certain disorders would you still get them?
Effects on the Public
Measles outbreak in 2014
Unvaccinated children caused the outbreak
Get rid of the vaccines that can cause harmful effects
Parents should have a choice instead of having a belief
Side Affects of the MMR Vaccine
Mild Side Affects:
Temporary pain and stiffness in the joints,
Severe Side Affects
Long term seizures
Permanent brain damage
What are Vaccines?
Immunize For Good - How Vaccines Work
Should Childhood Vaccinations Be Mandatory?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends getting 28 doses of 10 vaccines for kids aged 0 to six.
No US federal laws mandate vaccination, but all 50 states require certain vaccinations for children entering public schools.
Most states offer medical and religious exemptions; and some states allow philosophical exemptions.
History of Vaccines
Edward Jenner, English physician and scientist, created the first smallpox vaccine using cowpox (a disease similar to smallpox that infects cows) and vaccinating an eight-year-old boy in 1796.
Jenner’s innovation was used for 200 years, with updates, and eradicated smallpox.
In 1993 the US Congress passed the Comprehensive Childhood Immunization Act of 1993 that created the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program to provide vaccinations free of charge to children in need in order to increase the number of vaccinated children
