Vaccinations provide an effective way to prevent fatal diseases or reduce their symptoms. This book highlights four infectious diseases: polio, tetanus, measles, and mumps. These four diseases are very harmful to human health and are difficult to treat after the infection because they are caused by a toxin or pathogenic virus.   The book covers many different infectious diseases; from the Spanish Flu, Smallpox, Yellow Fever, Measles, and Poliomyelitis - to Lassa Fever, Ebola, Hantavirus, HIV/AIDS and SARS Coronavirus, as well as the prion diseases Creutzfeldt–Jakob and Mad /5(58).

b, Hepatitis B, and polio, are commonly used in childhood immunization schedules. These vaccines incorporate both viral and bacterial vaccines and contain toxoids, purified protein sub-unit vaccine, conjugated polysaccharide vaccine, recombinant protein vaccine, and inactivated viral vaccine respectively (See Figure 3). VACCINE FACT BOOK   The measles vaccine too changed world history and the history of millions of families. Globally we have also made a lot of progress. Today, 85% of one-year olds receive the measles vaccine and the number of deaths has fallen from million to 95, in the latest data. Smallpox, polio, and measles are just three of the diseases we have.

Live virus vaccines against paralytic poliomyelitis, for example, may ineach instance produce the disease it is intended to prevent; the livevirus vaccines against measles and mumps may produce such side effects as encephalitis. Both of these problems are |due to the inherent difficulty of controlling. 17, , an official announcement of the existence of an epidemic polio infection was made in Brooklyn, New York. That year, there were o cases and more than 6, deaths due to polio in the United States.”(Schneider). Before the polio vaccine was developed in by Dr. Salk, polio was the United States most feared disease.

MMR vaccine. The MMR vaccine contains vaccines that protect against three viral infections: measles, mumps and rubella.

MMR vaccine is given as a series of two doses with the first dose at 12 to 15 months of age and the second at 4 to 6 years of age.

Inthe United States reported 1, measles cases, its highest in more than 25 years. “Prior to Covid, measles was moving across the world as people flew,” said Dr.

Frank Mahoney. This book commemorates the enormous magnitude of these achieve-ments too often forgotten. Recall that smallpox killed over million people in the twentieth century alone and now has been totally erad-icated from our planet. Measles, which once killed millions each year globally and still kills roughlyin Third World countries, today.

Diseases like polio, measles, diphtheria and rubella were once common in the United States, afflicting hundreds of thousands of infants, children and adults, and killing thousands each year.

This highly informative book offers readers an engaging introduction to the rise of scientific and alternative medicine. It provides an excellent overview of the biology of infectious diseases as well as the history of the anti-vaccination s: 3.

According to Roman Bystrianyk and Suzanne Humphries, MD, authors of the book Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History, at least part of the reason for the huge drops in measles rates following the early measles vaccination campaigns had to do with a flawed belief system about the effectiveness of the first measles vaccine.

Measles vaccine is a vaccine that prevents measles. Nearly all of those who do not develop immunity after a single dose develop it after a second dose.

When rates of vaccination within a population are greater than 92% outbreaks of measles typically no longer occur; however, they may occur again if rates of vaccination decrease.

The vaccine's effectiveness lasts many years. Adherents believe that the use of vaccines (particularly the measles vaccine) deprives infants of the opportunity to benefit from the experience of having the diseases. The first nationwide outbreak of measles in Great Britain came to light shortly after a 5-year-old boy from Yorkshire, developed measles following a visit to a similar community in north London.

A measles outbreak now would be much more dangerous. The measles vaccine was developed in and perfected in The vaccine now includes mumps and rubella (MMR). This means, if you choose to not get the measles vaccine, then you also are at risk for mumps and rubella.

It is usually given at the same time as the Hib/MenC vaccine - this stands for 'Haemophilus influenzae type b/meningitis C' and the pneumoccocal vaccine (given as separate injections).

A second dose is usually given at age 3 years and 4 months to 5 years .This book is dangerous and if Goodreads actually had a conscience this should be taken down. It is insane to sell anti vaccination children's books for goodness sake. Especially when the title is a play on words of a book by Roald Dahl, a great advocate for vaccination after his daughters death from measles /5(67).Infectious disease - Infectious disease - Polio vaccine: The value of primary prevention of disease through active immunization programs has been most convincingly demonstrated in the case of poliomyelitis.
