Your sick child takes a drink without you looking, you take a drink after him not knowing that he is carrying the flu virus. You get up in the middle of the night, feeling sick to your stomach, running a fever, and feeling queasy. You think back to the last time you have shared or gotten close to anyone sick, you remember that your child is sick and think back to the last time you or him got a flu vaccine, or any vaccine. Vaccines help protect us from sickness and build up antigens to fight the virus off. Children should get vaccines for the protection of others. Vaccination rules need to be changed to prevent a major outbreak of several or one diseases. The CDC can reduce the number of unvaccinated children by creating strict rules that parents must follow. Therefore; the vaccines will be technically forced upon the child if needed and given proper

Small red bumps, an itchy rash, pain when anyone touches it…these are some of the symptoms of Shingles. A viral disease also known as herpes zoster is a reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). It’s also the same virus that causes chickenpox (varicella). Unlike chickenpox which can cover a person’s entire body, shingles typically stays in a local area. The bright red rash that’s typical is in a single stripe on either the left or right side of the body. The symptoms can vary from person to person as well as the duration. Typically there’s some tingling anywhere from 2 to 4 days before the rash appears but it could be as far out as weeks before the rash appears.

Since the invention of vaccines, it has created a huge impact worldwide. As a child begins to start school, their required by the state to receive their twelve routine shots. The children who receive all their shots have a greater chance of not contracting any diseases. Throughout the years, vaccination or otherwise known as immunization has been a hugely controversial issue worldwide and whether or not to vaccinate children. However, vaccines are an effective and key role in keeping the human population healthy and safe.
To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? That is the question. Vaccination has sparked heated debate since its development amongst the following groups; parents, naturopaths, medical professionals, etc. Fuel has been added to the fire of the vaccine debate by the media and anti-vaxxer fear mongering tactics, making it hard for those considering vaccination, to decipher fact from myth. It is vital that we first understand the facts rather than believing the latest rumor before making an informed decision to vaccinate or not. This is the aim of this report. Through analytical research presented in this report I have come to the conclusion that vaccines are not only crucial and beneficial but that everyone who is eligible should be vaccinated, as that
Smallpox was the most serious poxvirus disease in humans, caused by Variola virus (VARV). It was spread by inhalational exposure of oral, nasal or pharyngeal droplets that contained the virus and initially caused influenza like symptoms such as fever of at least 38.3°C, muscle pain, malaise, headache and prostration. After 10-14 days incubation the classic poxvirus rash would appear on the face, all four limbs, mucous membranes of the mouth, tongue, palate and throat. When visible lesions first observed, temperature falls to near normal, and the lesions rapidly enlarged and ruptured, developing from macules to papules and eventually pustules that dried up and crusted over by 14 to 16 days if the patient survived. By day 16-20, scabs would form
Genital Herpes is common in the United States affecting both men and women ages 14-49 years of age. It is a highly contagious disease that can be spread by having vaginal, anal or oral sex with someone who is infected. It is a lifelong disease that can only be maintained with antiviral medications that will help lessen the severity of an outbreak. Different types of diagnosis will be tested along with physical examination. Staying in a monogamous relationship and practicing safe sex will decrease the chance of catching the disease.
In the primary stage symptoms tend to occur three through four weeks after being infected. Some symptoms are, “being sore around the infected area called chancre.” The sore appears wherever the disease had entered or anywhere near it and can last up to six weeks. In the secondary stage the symptoms involve “skin rashes, sore throat, headaches, swollen lymph glands, aching joints, hair loss,
Herpes, or Herpes Simplex is a viral infectious disease that results in very dangerous and ridiculous skin infections. The cause of Herpes is the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) and the infections are categorized on the basis of the body part infected by them. Herpes is of two basic types, namely Oral Herpes and Genital Herpes. Oral Herpes is the condition when the infection, in the form of blisters is over the face, inside the mouth, and over the scalp, while in case of Genital Herpes infections are over the genitals as well as on the buttocks. Herpes Simplex Virus is broadly divided into two types, namely Herpes Simplex Virus type-1 and Herpes Simplex Virus type-2 (more commonly referred to as HSV-1 and HSV-2). HSV-1 is responsible for most of
A painful rash? How? I had chickenpox before? But did you know that the Varicella Zoster Virus that causes chickenpox, remains within the nervous systems, nerve cells, even after getting chickenpox? But why is it that we don’t feel The Varicella Zoster Virus?
A common way that people and animals alike will prevent the body obtaining a virus is by getting a vaccine. This is why CDV cases are much higher in wild populations. CDV is most commonly found in younger dogs but also in more mature dogs that have not gotten a vaccine. Puppies will typically receive one shot every three to four weeks from six weeks to eight weeks old, then a booster shot will be give at week 16 (Larson, 2006). If the dog is nor longer a puppie, i.e. older than the 16 week mark vets recommend that they get the MLV in a double dosge separated by three to four weeks (Univeristy, 2007). The booster shots will always increase the number of antibodies against CDV. Today, there are two different kinds of vaccines for CDV (Larson, 2006).
I do believe that Vaccinations should be required because of my personal experiences with vaccinations. While I was a young child many of the vaccinations really helped me strengthen my immune system. I believe that it depends on the type of vaccination if it should be required or not. There is fear and controversy in this because the faith the people put into the government and the medical field. I will go into more details on why or why not we should be required to have vaccinations.
