Produced by the Health Protection Agency, this e-bug resource contains teacher guidance, stimulus materials and student activity suggestions. It looks at the topic of disease prevention through vaccinations.
In the main activity students take part in a simulation to see how vaccines are used to prevent the spread of infections and discover the significance of herd immunity.
An extension activity asks students to assess which vaccinations are recommended when visiting certain countries of the world.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
