Academic grades are no longer enough; education must be enriched with practical skills for pupils to flourish in their future careers. Technological and economic advances are shaping our world at an incomprehensibly rapid pace, especially when it comes to artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, genetic engineering, algorithms and biology.

Vaccines and Immunity

Vaccination plays a vital role in controlling vaccine-preventable diseases successfully. Vaccination is an action to introduce vaccines into our body system and is usually given by injection. Vaccines are made using several different processes. It is a product of either a killed germ, a live but weakened germ or just a critical part of the germ that activates our body immune system to be immune to that specific germ. It is important to build immunity, to protect yourself from an infectious specific disease eg measles, mumps, rubella or tetanus and so on. If you have immunity to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected. Not only that, being vaccinated can also prevent transmission of the virus to other people. Vaccination is considered by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as one of the most effective ways to prevent diseases and cost-effective health interventions ever.

Like any medicine, vaccines can have mild side effects such as mild fever or reaction such as redness, swelling, bruising, soreness or slight rash at the injection spot. These effects usually will go away within a few days. Serious or life-threatening side effects or reactions from vaccines are rare. In fact, most people are at a higher risk of becoming ill from diseases if they’re not vaccinated.
