  3. A vaccine is a type of medicine that trains the body’s immune system so that it can fight a disease it has not come into contact with before. Vaccines are designed to prevent disease, rather than treat a disease once you have caught it. To understand how vaccines work, it helps to look first at how the immune system works, because vaccines harness the natural activity of your immune system. This short animation explains how vaccines enable the body to make the right sort of antibodies to fight a particular disease.

  8. أنقذت اللقاحات ملايين الأرواح حول العالم ، ومع ذلك تفاجئنا أعداد لا يُستهان بها من الأفراد والمجتمعات الذين يعتقدون بأن اللقاحات هي مصدر خطر . إن الأبحاث العلمية التي تدعم أهمية اللقاحات واضحة وجلية ، ولكن طريقة إيصال المعلومة للفرد العادي قد لا تكون بهذا الوضوح . ولهذا السبب نحتاج الى أستنباط أساليب جديدة لترسيخ فكرة أن اللقاحات فعّالة . أحيانا يكون من المتعذر الحصول على دعم للأفكار الجديدة وغير التقليدية ، ولهذا فنحن نأمل أن نلقى تجاوبا منكم لدعم مشروعنا والهادف الى تثقيف الأطفال (والآباء كذلك) واطلاعهم على الأبحاث العلمية الموثوقة حول اللقاحات والامراض الفيروسية عن طريق القصص المصورة
  9. All year long, researchers at hospitals around the world collect samples from flu patients and send them to top virology experts with one goal: to design the vaccine for the next flu season. But why do we need a new one every year? Vaccines for diseases like mumps and rubella offer a lifetime of protection with two shots early in life; what’s so special about the flu?
  10. "La ciencia que hay detrás de las vacunas está clara" "Sin embargo, en ocasiones, el mensaje no llega a toda la comunidad" "Los niños y los adolescentes disfrutan leyendo cómics: una puerta de entrada a la literatura científica" "Es por eso que hemos creado esta mini serie" Trans: Dra. Pepe Serrano @PepePediatre y Dra. Matilde Zornoza Moreno @Pediatra2punto0
  11. Alien invaders descend on a world while defensive forces prepare to battle the intruders... is this the plot from a new blockbuster movie? No, this is the story of Immunity Warriors: Invasion of the Alien Zombies, an online motion comic to educate school-aged kids about the immune system and the importance of vaccination. Read the motion digital comic online (activate flash) , download the PDF version, or watch on YouTube.
  12. In 1987, thousands of people gathered in Saudi Arabia for the annual Hajj pilgrimage. But what started out as a celebration led to a worldwide health crisis: more than 2,000 cases of meningitis broke out, spreading across Saudi Arabia and the rest of the world. How did it spread so quickly and what makes meningitis so dangerous? Melvin Sanicas examines how the disease affects our bodies.
  13. The #SCIENCE to SUPPORT #VACCINES IS CLEAR. However, sometimes, The MESSAGE to The LAY COMMUNITY IS NOT. Children and teens enjoy reading #comics: A GATEWAY to HEALTH LITERACY This why we make this mini-series. #VaccinesWork & #VaccinesSaveLives
  14. In Germany there was a court decision of the Bundesgerichtshof and later a law: Patienten­rechte­gesetz 2013 § 630e BGB (https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/bgb/__630e.html), which stated that it was mandatory to share information regarding vaccines and vaccine safety before routine vaccination and defined the content of these information. The RKI displays the information in a format of FAQs.
  15. À l'occasion de la Journée mondiale contre le cancer 2019, le Dr Elisabete Weiderpass, directrice du Centre international de recherche sur le cancer (CIRC), a réaffirmé l'engagement du CIRC dans la lutte contre le cancer du col de l'utérus et a pleinement souscrit à la position de l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) sur la vaccination contre le papillomavirus humain (VPH) , confirmant que la vaccination contre le VPH est sûre, efficace et essentielle dans la lutte contre le cancer du col utérin. Chaque année, plus de 310 000 femmes meurent d'un cancer du col utérin. Ce chiffre devrait atteindre près de 460 000 décès par an d’ici 2040, à moins que des mesures préventives ne soient mises en œuvre rapidement. Pour la Journée mondiale du cancer 2019, le CIRC se concentre sur les projets qu'il réalise, souvent en partenariat avec l'OMS et d'autres, dans le but d'éliminer le cancer du col de l'utérus en tant que problème de santé publique au cours des prochaines décennies.
  16. The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) is an independent health education charity and the world’s longest-established public health body. The RSPH report, Moving the Needle, looks at the importance of vaccination through childhood, working-age adulthood, and later life, and explores the barriers to uptake at different stages of the life course. The discovery of our ability to immunise people against disease has had an almost unprecedented impact on human health. Though the UK has a world-leading vaccination programme and this should be celebrated, history and current events have shown that fear and misinformation about vaccines can cause significant damage to seemingly stable vaccination programmes. While improving access to vaccines remains crucial in addressing low uptake rates – and especially in reducing inequalities in uptake – understanding the public’s attitudes to vaccination is also a valuable tool for increasing and maintaining uptake.
  17. Building the capacity to improve vaccine acceptance and uptake through the curation of evidence based resources. CANVax makes it easier for public health professionals to find and collect resources to inform their work in improving vaccine acceptance and uptake.
  18. Whether you are a government regulator, a scientist, or a health care provider, the Vaccine Safety Quarterly has relevant vaccine safety information for you. It is a newsletter for our friends, partners, and members. It highlights opinions from the world’s leading vaccine safety experts, gives you a description of new projects and stories and opinions from our members and reports on our work’s impact. It will help you stay informed and offer ways to get involved.
  19. This database offers a current, nationwide overview of existing information materials and offers on the subject of vaccination from various providers. Commercial materials were excluded - as far as recognizable. You have the options to search for keywords or for example languages, to select for certain standard vaccinations according to age or diseases, to search for special materials for parents, doctors or other multipliers or specifically for brochures, films, radio contributions, etc.
  20. Dengue fever is present in Asia, the Pacific, the Caribbean, the Americas and Africa. Humans are infected with dengue virus through bites of tiger (Aedes) mosquitoes. There are 4 different dengue types, and infection with one type gives little immune protection against the other types. After an incubation of 8-10 days, a mild and usually self-limited flu-like illness develops. Current scientific evidence shows that sequential infection increases the risk of a severe form of the infection with bleedings - dengue hemorrhagic fever. In several Asian countries, dengue hemorrhagic fever has become an important cause of disease and death, mainly in children. No specific treatment or vaccine exists for dengue, and general intensive care is often needed.
  21. The relations between vaccine hesitancy (VH) and individual socioeconomic status (SES) vary with context and remain poorly understood. We examined associations between parental SES and VH levels and their potential mediation by two attitudinal factors: commitment to making “good” health-related decisions and trust in mainstream medicine. Vaccine refusal and delay are frequent among French parents, especially the more educated. Our results suggest that levels of commitment and trust play a key role in shaping VH. Suitable educational interventions are needed to restore trust in authorities and vaccines. Helping healthcare professionals to communicate better with vaccine-hesitant parents is also essential.
  22. AusVaxSafety is a national system for monitoring vaccine safety in Australia. The first annual report from AusVaxSafety summarises information from parents and carers who responded to an SMS about their child's health a few days after receiving a vaccine at routine National Immunisation Program schedule points in 2016-17. The report includes infographics providing a visual representation of the information collected through those responses, including the number of parents and carers who responded and health information about their children. A separate infographic summarises responses from parents and carers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, who receive additional vaccines at the 12 and 18 month schedule points. The results confirm that vaccines in the National Immunisation Program are safe.
  23. Our mission is to provide an independent assessment of vaccines and vaccine safety to help guide decision makers and educate physicians, the public and the media about key issues surrounding the safety of vaccines. The institute’s goal is to work toward preventing disease using the safest vaccines possible.
  24. Presented by: the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada Date: 28 March 2018 Speaker: Dr. Vanessa Poliquin
