Bill Nye, ‘the Science Guy’ (a course about vaccines)

Bill Nye, ‘the Science Guy’ taught a course for the same company I teach for, Varsity Tutors! I get so excited when I find celebrities who’ve taught a course for the same company I do. Here he teaches about vaccines and why we need them!

Do you know what the most dangerous animal in the world is? A mosquito. That’s right, it’s not a lion or a shark as one may think, it’s a tiny mosquito. It’s one of the main reasons there is a deadly disease called malaria, in countries mostly near the equator where it’s warm all the time.

The germs or bacteria that get you sick or this virus, called the Covid 19 pandemic, or the parasites that try to live off you, can be fought by our own immune systems. The healthier you are, the better, of course, but believe it or not we are not too much different from animals. We are more like them then you realize. It’s why we’re reaching for ‘herd immunity.’ Viruses can spread like wildfire, and measles, the chicken pox, malaria, or Covid 19 are different from just a regular cold or fever.

Our immune systems are not ready for them! So what the vaccine does is train your immune system so that when your cells (white blood cells) come up against the germ, they capture it and destroy it! They break it up into molecules and devour it. I am going to attach the video so you can see for yourself the benefit, history and importance of vaccines. I hope you enjoy it and find it educational.

I'm a teacher, writer, and speaker. I got into publishing when I joined a Christian writers' group online where I met a few select authors who mentored me. My life changed. Through classes, webinars, and friendly emails, I've been encouraged to write. I started my blog to cope with my spinal injury in hopes of helping people.
