Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is a vaccination?

    • A.

      Medicine you take when you are feeling sick

    • B.

      A vaccine that protects your against a specific pathogen

    • C.

      A vaccine that gives you full immunity of several virus'

    Correct Answer
    B. A vaccine that protects your against a specific pathogen
    Explanation
    A vaccination is a type of medicine that is administered to protect an individual against a specific pathogen. It works by stimulating the immune system to recognize and fight off the pathogen, thereby providing immunity against the disease caused by that particular pathogen. Vaccinations are designed to prevent the occurrence and spread of infectious diseases, and they have been proven to be highly effective in reducing the incidence and severity of many illnesses.

    What are the two forms of a vaccine?

    • A.

      Adjuvantus, Non-adjuvantus

    • B.

      Attentuated, Inactivated

    • C.

      Weak, Strong

    Correct Answer
    B. Attentuated, Inactivated
    Explanation
    Attenuated and inactivated are the two forms of a vaccine. Attenuated vaccines are made from weakened or modified forms of the virus or bacteria, which can still stimulate an immune response but do not cause illness. Inactivated vaccines, on the other hand, are made from killed or inactivated forms of the virus or bacteria, which cannot replicate or cause disease. Both forms of vaccines are designed to stimulate the immune system and provide protection against specific diseases.

    _______ is the disease that causes "lockjaw"

    • A.

      Tetanus

    • B.

      Polio

    • C.

      Hep B

    Correct Answer
    A. Tetanus
    Explanation
    Tetanus is the correct answer because it is the disease that causes "lockjaw". Tetanus is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Clostridium tetani, which produces a toxin that affects the muscles and nerves, leading to muscle stiffness and spasms, including the jaw muscles. This condition is commonly referred to as "lockjaw" because it causes the jaw to become rigid and difficult to open. Polio and Hep B are unrelated diseases and do not cause lockjaw.

    How does a vaccine affect our bodies?

    • A.

      It creates more WBC to spread throughout the body

    • B.

      It increases the number of pathogens in our body

    • C.

      It increases the bodies reaction time to a foreign invader by creating memory cells

    Correct Answer
    C. It increases the bodies reaction time to a foreign invader by creating memory cells
    Explanation
    A vaccine stimulates the immune system to recognize and remember specific pathogens by introducing a harmless version of the pathogen or its components. This triggers the production of memory cells, which enable a faster and more effective immune response when the actual pathogen is encountered in the future.

    Vaccines are the main reason why this particular disease is now extinct.

    • A.

      Small Pox

    • B.

      Chicken Pox

    • C.

      Large Pox

    Correct Answer
    A. Small Pox
    Explanation
    Vaccines have played a crucial role in eradicating smallpox, making it the correct answer. Smallpox was a highly contagious and deadly disease that caused widespread outbreaks and mortality. The development and widespread use of the smallpox vaccine, particularly the WHO-led global vaccination campaign, led to the successful eradication of smallpox in 1980. This achievement demonstrates the effectiveness of vaccines in preventing and eliminating diseases. Chickenpox and largepox are not extinct diseases, and while vaccines are available for chickenpox, it is still a common illness.

    How can a virus be contracted?

    • A.

      Inhalation

    • B.

      Exposure to contaminated mucous membranes

    • C.

      Trough an open wound

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    A virus can be contracted through inhalation, which means breathing in airborne particles that contain the virus. It can also be contracted through exposure to contaminated mucous membranes, such as touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated hands. Additionally, a virus can be contracted through an open wound, where the virus enters the body through a cut or a break in the skin. Therefore, all of the above options are ways in which a virus can be contracted.

    Vaccines provide us with full immunity to a specific virus

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Vaccines do not provide us with full immunity to a specific virus. While vaccines can greatly reduce the risk of getting infected with a particular virus, they do not guarantee complete immunity. Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to recognize and fight against specific pathogens, but the level of protection can vary from person to person. Some individuals may still get infected with the virus even after being vaccinated, although the symptoms are usually milder compared to those who have not been vaccinated. Therefore, it is important to continue practicing other preventive measures such as wearing masks and practicing good hygiene even after getting vaccinated.
