In recent studies, researchers found a way to use technology to further develop the area of vaccinations within the medical field and more importantly for infants. Mr. Michael Hagmann confirms that “Immunologists are using computers to help them identify the antigen fragments that trigger immune responses and might thus provide vaccines for diseases ranging from malaria to cancer”. With research on a positive note, headed into the right direction for the future, an article states “It may be possible to create vaccine cocktails directed against several different pathogens by inserting multiple proteins into a single vector or by mixing several vaccines made with the same viral vector but expressing different proteins.” (“Advances in Vaccine Technology And Their Impact on Managed Care”). So this may also help people who have not received vaccines as a child. If someone has trypanophobia, which is the fear of needles and injections, this may strongly help the adult population over the age of twenty-one. Yet if they had only received the vaccine as an infant, they would not have to worry about having a vaccine.
The CDC article “Vaccines and Immunizations”, states that “A newborn baby acquires passive immunity from its mother through the placenta. A person can also get passive immunity through antibody-containing blood products such as immune globulin, which may be given when immediate protection from a specific disease is needed.” (“Vaccines and Immunizations”). Since babies are…
