Remember what you learned during Immunization Week



Immunization Week is from from 24-30 April, so here at the middle we are shaking a finger at ourselves.

How did it get this bad? Many millions of seniors and babies are not immunized for most of the bad illnesses. They are the most vulnerable and will get sick easily.

Hence we all need to work together and fix this.

In the past 9 months FPMag researchers have noticed people are getting very sick and they are dying from preventable disease.

Those same FPMag researchers have been digging into available data from around the world–and we don’t know how honest most nation’s reports are.

The levels of inoculation needed to prevent a disease from substantially impacting a population are close to 94%. Around the world, it looks like the level of immunization of populations is below that by thirty percent or more.

  1. Need 94%
  2. Got 65+%
  3. 29% to go.
  4. Spread the word. Vaccinate!

Why is this happening?

The World Health Organization talks about public hesitancy, but FPMag researchers have been watching toxicity on social media. They call themselves the “AntiVaxxers”. It’s a flat-Earth society that uses similar logic to say that people should fear vaccination.

Also there has been a scarcity of vaccine where poverty is an issue.

Tens of billions of dollars have dried up for humanitarians who vaccinate but also provide reproductive health services since 2016 when the United States compelled many nations to stop funding medical humanitarian teams that also provided reproductive health services (like free condoms).

Trained health workers have not been able to get into hard-to-reach areas and this has left many children and seniors susceptible to diseases.

Many people are going to die from once defeated diseases. We know that not everyone is going to agree with our research. Certainly we haven’t talked to tens of thousands of people but we have looked at national reports and also evaluated the number of doses that have been distributed. Then using the countries where we have a full set of data, we average those together.

In a recent report in FPMag‘s Health Women section, several important family habits were discussed.

  • Wearing a respirator mask, properly fitted (We shared our Singapore Hospital colleagues’ excellent instructional video.);
  • Proper hand washing and when that is a must;
  • Safe food storage and preparation; and
  • Avoiding contaminated water.

So, this is now news. We humans have failed to immunize one third of the world. People are getting very sick. Let’s get with it.

When you are immunized your body becomes either immune or strongly resistant to the particular infection or disease your vaccination was intended to treat.

Vaccines are forever evolving but it is fairly safe to say that the following list comprises the most commonly licensed types. The nature of the subject pathogen has determined how scientists warn the body how to defend against the virus.

  • Live-attenuated vaccines;
  • Inactivated vaccines;
  • Subunit, recombinant, polysaccharide; and
  • Conjugate vaccines.

Unless you go and get yourself a medical degree and then at least a couple of post-graduate degrees in biology and pathology, you are not going to be able to stay on top of this medical technology. You will need to trust someone and that is why it is important to make certain you have a trusted medical practitioner providing medical care for you.

During vaccinations, RINJ Nurses who vaccinate offer free checkup booking for your kids & a free confidential HIV test. You can even take the test home and do the HIV blood test privately. It is as simple as a blood sugar test sample. Sometimes there is a treat for children. Contact https://talkback.rinj.orgClick image to enlarge. Photo Art: Rosa Yamamoto FPMag
