Gelila Isayas - Vaccine Storyboard

Storyboard Text

  • Doctor, please help. My son, Timmy, is scared of his first vaccine.
  • Mommy, I don't want it to hurt!
  • No need to be afraid Timmy! Vaccines may look scary, but they're here to help!
  • When bacteria or viruses invade the body, they attack and multiply. The immune system uses white or immune cells, to fight them. These white cells consist primarily of macrophages, B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes.
  • Macrophages digest germs and leave behind parts of the invading germs called antigens. B-lymphocytes produce antibodies that attack the antigens left behind by the macrophages. T-lymphocytes attack cells in the body that have already been infected.
  • Woahhh
  • Exactly! All three are needed to fight infections.
  • Vaccines develop immunity by imitating an infection, just like how that mime imitates different actions. This causes the immune system to produce T-lymphocytes and antibodies.
  • Once the imitation infection goes away, the body is left with a supply of T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes that will remember how to fight that disease in the future. There are different kinds of vaccines to fight different kinds of diseases.
  • They're like superheroes fighting the bad guys!
  • Wow, I never knew that!
  • Yeah! I wanna fight bad guys and stay healthy!
  • Isn't it fascinating? Now, are you ready to get your vaccine?
