Value of Vaccines Science Week 2018


Vaccines save between 2 and 3 million lives each year. They are recognised as one of the most important preventative medicines and help to prevent against many diseases, including measles, mumps, rubella, HPV-related diseases, shingles, meningitis and many more. This animated video is made for primary school students. Across five chapters, the video demonstrates the value of vaccines in society and how vaccines protect public health. It also tells the story of the origin of vaccines and how they work. A quiz at the end helps to gauge the impact the video has had on students.
