Hey Alex, doesn't it seem like everyone is getting sick nowadays? What should I do...?
Yeah, maybe! It seemed pretty good yesterday. If you do get a vaccine, I'll see if I can get my parents to let me get one. Maybe them too!
We're learning about vaccines today, right? Maybe a vaccine is the answer!
Okay! Sounds good.
We don’t vaccinate just to protect our children. We also vaccinate to protect our grandchildren and their grandchildren. With one disease, smallpox, we “stopped the leak” in the boat by eradicating the disease. Our children don’t have to get smallpox shots anymore because the disease no longer exists. Smallpox is now only a memory, and if we keep vaccinating against other diseases, the same will someday be true for them too.
Might have to get one...
Hello, sir! I heard there were free flu shots today?
Yes, there are! You will be joined by a doctor soon, please go to room B12 in the meantime.
