They are products that protect people against many diseases that can be very dangerous and even deadly. Different than most medicines that treat or cure diseases, vaccines prevent you from getting sick with the disease in the first place. That being said, vaccines play an important role in keeping us healthy.
A more in-depth view of vaccines, it is made from very small amounts of weak or dead germs that can cause diseases. For example, viruses, bacteria, or toxins. It prepares your body to fight the disease faster and more effectively so you won’t get sick or you will develop 'immunity' to it. Immunity is the body’s way of preventing disease.
Some notable vaccines existing so far are measles, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, meningitis, influenza, tetanus, typhoid, and cervical cancer.
Regarding coronavirus pandemic, the rush to develop the vaccine for COVID-19 has all been an international effort. Countries like the US, Japan, Israel, South Korea, Germany, etc. and pharmaceutical companies like Informa Pharma Intelligence, Sanofi and Johnson & Johnson, just to name a few, have been exhausting all of their available resources and means, even squeezed timelines that usually total months into weeks or even days just to fight back against global health issues posed by the virus.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the 1927 decision, Buck vs. Bell
Holmes was quite correct. Now, compulsory sterilization was finally considered to be grotesque, repealed state by state until they were all … continue reading...
Was reading this tonight and couldn’t help but chuckle over this remark:
The balance in the VICP fund as of May 2013 was about $3.4 billion. The fund has paid out only $2.7 billion since it was established in 1988
Funny. I don’t think nearly half of the amount the fund has collected being disbursed is eligible for the word, ‘only.’ I know its relative, but I would think something like, say, $1 million, would be a fraction suitable for the word ‘only.’ I think a pay out of $2.7 billion represents a really sizable payout, and if this were … continue reading...
I read a fascinating news article today about the worries that doctors have because some people are choosing not to get their measles immunization for their children (this could also be read: doctors are annoyed people are challenging their judgment). Here is the article about the jump in measles cases.
There are several parts of the article that caught my eye.
Many people are rejecting the measles shot out of concern that it might be a factor in making kids autistic. To this, the article says, recapitulating the ‘party’ line:
Questions commonly center on autism and the fear that … continue reading...
