How vaccines work

How Vaccines Work

  • Personal Immunity

    • Develop antibodies to a component of the disease

    • Antibodies prevent disease if exposed

  • Herd Immunity

    • Prevents significant transmission of contagious diseases

    • Acts as a firewall

    • Protection extended to unvaccinated individuals (e.g. very young or immunocompromised)

    • Threshold level of vaccine coverage to be effective

  • Vaccination


    • A public and private partnership

    • A responsibility over the lifespan

    • One of the most cost effective ways to protect Texans and the Texas economy

    Diphtheria – 21,053 cases & 1,822 deaths annually pre-vaccine. Since 1980, 54 cases have been reported in the US. Worldwide, 7088 cases reported to WHO in 2008.

    A communicable disease outbreak has economic costs

    A communicable disease outbreak has economic costs

    • 2008 San Diego Measles Outbreak: On returning from a trip to Switzerland, an intentionally unvaccinated 7-year old unknowingly infected with measles exposed 839 persons to measles.

    • 106 children (13%) lacked proof of measles immunity (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices standards)

    • 20 were considered to have had minimal exposure.

    • The parents of 44% of the remaining 86 had declined or intentionally delayed vaccination.

    • 84% of the 86 were eligible to receive post-exposure measles vaccination prophylaxis.

    • 13 (41%) accepted the vaccine. The remaining 73 unvaccinated children were placed under 21-day quarantine.

    • With community vaccination rates of >90%, the outbreak began to subside before containment started.

    San Diego – Outbreak Costs

    The state’s public health response prevented transmission beyond the third generation at a cost of $10,376 per case.

    Total outbreak costs were $176,980:

    • Public sector costs - $124,517 (lab, staff, etc.),

    • Direct medical charges for case patients and exposed infants - $16,163 ($14,458 for hospitalization),

    • Quarantined families reported average direct & indirect costs of $775 per child.

    Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

    Stage 1- runny nose, occasional cough, low-grade fever; lasts 1-2 weeks

    Stage 2- Rapid, prolonged fits of coughing leading to vomiting and exhaustion; infants die of respiratory failure, brain damage or pneumonia; lasts 6-10 weeks

    Stage 3- Gradual reduction of cough over 2-3 weeks

    Most contagious during Stage 1

    The anti vaccine phenomenon

    The Anti-Vaccine Phenomenon

    • Vaccines become victim of anecdote.

    • Vaccines become victim of success.

    • Science is less convincing than a

      • sincere story.

    • Acts of commission vs. omission.

    The anti vaccine phenomenon1

    The Anti-Vaccine Phenomenon

    If you watch TV you know less about the world than if you just drink gin out of a bottle.

    • Garrison Keillor

    • Jenny McCarthy, Jim Carrey, Oprah, Bill Maher, Larry King

    • Dr. Oz, Dr. Bob

    The Anti-Vaccine Phenomenon

    The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, it’s that they know so many things that just aren’t so.

    • Pockets of vulnerability

    • Return of vaccine-preventable diseases

      • Measles, HiB disease, pertussis
