According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, they have to schedule the correct time for childhood vaccination. Today, children in the United States routinely get vaccines that protect them from more than a dozen diseases such as measles, polio, and tetanus. Many diseases are becoming a thing of the past, thanks to parents getting their children immunized. All children must get vaccinated before they can attend school. With an open discussion about the importance of immunizations and the different types of vaccines required to attend school, students are now using research from teacher to educate themselves on required immunizations.
All students are to use any notes taken and websites given during the open discussion to answer the questions in part one of the assignment. The responses must be at least two sentences each in length. Using the required immunization list given in part two of the assignment, research and list all diseases the vaccines are to protect against. Students are to use their shot records to complete part three of the assignment. Using your shot record, and the immunization list from the websites given, compare them from birth until age eighteen. Make a list of any shots you are missing and what shots will be required from your current age until the age of eighteen. Assignment must be on loose leaf paper and completed one week from today.
Part 1 Assignment

2. Name two questions that may appear on an immunization questionnaire or consent form?
3. How long does immunity last after getting a vaccine?
Part 2 Assignment

Part 3 Assignment
By using the websites given by Mrs. Lang, students will have to make a list of the remaining immunizations, if any, they will need from their current age until the age of 18. Be sure to include any vaccines that would have expired by the age of eighteen.
Students will first review any notes taken during the open class discussion about immunizations. They will also speak with their parents to get a copy of their shot record. Using the websites the class completed research on, notes and their shot records, they are to complete the three part assignment in one week.
In conclusion, all students will have learned the importance of getting vaccinated and how it affects your health. Students will have learned all positive and negative effects from immunizations as well as the diseases they are to protect the body against. By completing all three parts of the assignments, students will know what vaccines they must recieve and/or the ones they are missing. They will also be able to relate this information to their parents while explaining the importance of correcting the problem if necessary.
