  • the best place to get vaccines is in the buttocks.

  • Well, as much as I love the buttocks, I have to say that primarily, vaccines can also be received in your arms.

  • Myth seven.

  • It is not necessary to vaccinate babies.

  • It is definitely necessary to vaccinate babies.

  • Vaccines are not tested enough.

  • This is definitely a myth, because vaccines are tested all the time.

  • Hi, My name is Dr New Pony.

  • Roger Poxy.

  • I'm a pediatric infectious disease specialist.

  • I am Maria Elena.

  • Both a Z and I am a microbiologist, Virologist and vaccine ologists today will be debunking some common vaccine myths.

  • Myth one.

  • If the disease has been mostly eliminated in my country, I don't need a vaccination.

  • So this is a common question that we get if we all lived in a bubble and there was no movement of people, this myth might hold true, but, you know, because of travel and movement of people around the world, Even if a vaccine preventable disease has been eradicated from a certain area, it can easily be reintroduced.

  • And you can come in contact with that disease.

  • The only infection that has been eradicated from the entire world.

  • is smallpox, and that was largely done through vaccination.

  • We've come close to eradicating other vaccine preventable diseases like polio, but unfortunately we have not quite made it there yet.

  • And many of these infections are still present in different parts of the world.

  • Myth number two.

  • There's no use getting a vaccine that's less than 100% effective.

  • That is absolutely not true, because any vaccine bring some level of protection by having your body practice while it's a waiting to get exposed with the rial pathogen.

  • So even if you get exposed and you are partially protected, that will mean that you will be getting ah, less severe disease.

  • You probably will not need to get hospitalized, and that probably can recover faster.

  • Most of the childhood vaccines are somewhere between 85 95% effective, depending on the exact vaccine and the person that you're giving it to.

  • So how effective a vaccine is depends on both the vaccination itself as well as your own immune system.

  • Response to it Myth Number three Vaccines give you the disease that they are meant to prevent, so this is definitely a myth.

  • There's confusion because you may be getting some symptoms when you get the vaccines, for example, fever or, you know, sort of the site of infection, and it gives the perception that you're getting a disease.

  • But vaccines are not going to give you the disease.

  • The whole reason for vaccination is to expose your immune system to kind of trick it into thinking it has been exposed to the infection so that it has a chance to practice and develop protections.

  • Myth.

  • Four Vaccines Can Cause Autism There's been, ah, lot off evidence that vaccines do not cause autism.

  • Where the question came about mostly relates to ah, study that was published in the late 19 nineties by an investigator who eventually was found Thio.

  • The publishing fraudulent information essentially made up data and had his license revoked and is no longer allowed to practice medicine.

  • And so that made its way into the media and has caused a lot of damage.

  • We've had a lot of kids who have not received their measles, mumps and rubella vaccines and have developed measles and ended up with lifelong sick wallet from that, and so people have looked at this.

  • They've studied it time and time again.

  • Multiple different studies looking at hundreds of thousands of Children in different countries, and no link has been found between vaccines and autism.

  • So myth number five.

  • It's not safe to get more than one vaccine at a time.

  • Uh, this is false.

  • Our immune systems are very powerful systems within our body, and they're designed to react and respond to many different pathogens.

  • Infections simultaneously and the number of antigens we say that you are exposed to in a vaccine is pretty minuscule compared to the number of things that you come across in your daily life.

  • And so it is definitely safe to get more than one vaccine at a time.

  • Myth.

  • Six.

  • The best place to get vaccines is in the buttocks most of the times they're being giving in your arms, because you can also look at a lot of the site off injection and how it reacts.

  • And it's because it's probably closer.

  • Also toe arriving to indeed the most important immune cells and where the immune cells locate so that then the response can become systemic for most Children or younger Children.

  • Sometimes the vaccine can be given into the thigh as well so the thigh and the arms are the most common places that vaccines are given now.

  • Myth seven.

  • It is not necessary to vaccinate babies.

  • Infants and young Children are really part of our population that stands to benefit the most from getting their routine vaccines.

  • The way that our vaccine schedule is developed in the United States is to provide kids, especially with immunity to infections at the times where they're most vulnerable, or at highest risk of developing severe disease if they get the infection.

  • And so that's why in the first year of life we provide many vaccines to kids because that is the age group where they're at the highest risk if they were to become ill with one of these pathogens, there are many conditions.

  • For example, whooping cough that we know Children under six months of age are at the highest risk of needing to be hospitalized or dying if they get the infection, and therefore it is definitely necessary to vaccinate babies, and it provides them with protection against many serious diseases.

  • Myth number eight Vaccines, Air not tested enough This is definitely a myth because vaccines are tested all the time.

  • Yes, I completely agree.

  • Vaccines are amongst the most studied things that we use in medicine, and they're evaluated all the way from the lab until after they're deployed and used in the general population.

  • So vaccines get tested when we're evaluating them in pre clinical settings in the laboratory.

  • They are very much evaluated when we're doing experimental trials.

  • Phase one trials Phase two trials, large Phase three trials and there's also testing even after their approval.

  • Myth number nine.

  • The effectiveness of vaccinations has never been proven.

  • Vaccines have been in some situations effective enough that they have eradicated disease from the planet on smallpox as the example there, or have allowed us to become very close to eradicating diseases such as polio.

  • These vaccine preventable diseases are becoming less common as we maintain high levels of vaccination in the general population.

  • When the vaccines are approved and they start being deployed at large scales, more information is gathered to determine the effectiveness of the vaccine, so effectiveness is a result off showing that they work in large, large numbers of populations.

  • Myth.

  • 10 vaccines can contain harmful ingredients, so this is definitely a myth, So I work specifically in vaccine production.

  • In our laboratories, we have toe assure that the ingredients are disclosed, and we have to assure that the ingredients are part of what is called acceptable ingredients that have proven that they are not going to be harmful, especially to human populations.

  • So many additional ingredients, aside from the vaccine components themselves that you might see listed in a vaccine, are there to make the vaccine safer in many cases or to increase their effectiveness.

  • And so you might see something like aluminum added to boost the immune system response.

  • And it's important to realize how tiny the amounts of these things in the vaccine are, and that a child who is breast fed or fed formula in just's much more aluminum in their diet than they would ever get through any vaccination.

  • Myth 11 is better hygiene practices.

  • Then you don't need vaccines.

  • It's not gonna protect you 100% but especially pathogens that are transmitted through mosquitoes or any other type of vectors.

  • You know, hygiene alone is probably not going to prevent you being exposed to potential very, very bad pathogens.

  • Myth 12.

  • Doctors only recommend vaccines because that's how they make money vaccine companies, in fact, do not even make a lot of money, because now this is practically a common good.

  • So this is not a one of the essential medicines that really come with any kind of economic attachment.

  • Vaccines are a public health intervention.

  • They have actually done some studies to look at it, and in many situations, once you factor in all of the things that are needed to deliver ah, vaccine safely to someone so storage purchase of the vaccine itself, personnel for your clinic when they've looked at pediatricians who do a lot of vaccination in our country.

  • In many cases they have actually found that they lose money by giving vaccines.

  • And so it's quite the opposite of this.

  • But we all do it, and we recommend it because we know that it is one of the best things we can do to keep our kids safe and healthy.

  • So our last myth is vaccines have microchips that track you.

  • Vaccines do not have microchips.

  • As you know, we have to want disclose all the components off the vaccine formulation, and right now there are no devices that are approved to be combined with the vaccine formulation.

  • Where people may get confused is sometimes the packaging of ah vaccine or a vaccine vial could have information on it that they used to track who got the vaccine so that if there's any issues, they know which patient to contact, or so that that information can go directly into your medical record.

  • But there are no microchips within the vaccines themselves or that are being injected into any patients for tracking as a vaccine developer.

  • I would add that also, if you would like to understand how vaccines have being evaluated during the experimental trials, is that you could go into the Food and Drug Administration site and that paired with information off course that is provided to you by your primary care physician.

  • It's probably the best location where you can look for Burrage IQ and trustworthy information.

the best place to get vaccines is in the buttocks.
