Mr. B- Diseases


List of 14 diseases (can use any of them except for HPV)

Plain sticky notes

Assignment- NO PICURES are needed!

Identify three diseases that were common 50 years ago but are not common today due to vaccines. Write a report about the diseases, when vaccines were developed against them, and how the incidences* of the diseases changed. Incidence means: rate of new (or newly diagnosed) cases of the disease. It is generally reported as the number of new cases occurring within a period of time (e.g., per month, per year). So, what was the rate of people getting the disease before the vaccine and what is it now?

4 things you need

1. Information about your disease- maybe how a person gets the disease, or the main symptoms, or how serious it is 2. When did the vaccine start being used? 3. How many people died, or were affected by the disease BEFORE the vaccine was used? 4. How many people die, or are affected by the disease NOW?


Wikipedia- although you could use that to get an idea about a topic, and then go to an expert source and actually use their information

Good websites/organizations

CDC- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention NIH- National Institute of Health The History of Vaccines- an educational resource by the College of Physicians of Philadelphia World Economic Forum- but be careful, the diseases they list are NOT just through vaccines
