Kirkuk Health and Medical Technical College organizes a scientific symposium entitled “Vaccines are an urgent necessity”

Under the patronage of the President of the Northern Technical University, Prof. Dr. Alia Abbas Ali Al-Attar, and under the supervision of the Dean of “Health and Medical Technical College / Kirkuk”, Assistant Professor Dr. Muhammad Yawuz Nour Al-Din, the Psychological Counseling and Educational Guidance Unit – in cooperation with the Department of Medical Laboratory Technologies in the college – organized a scientific symposium for students of the scientific departments of the college in (Department of Medical Laboratory Techniques) and (Department of Therapeutic Nutrition Techniques) entitled (Vaccines are an urgent necessity).

The lecture was delivered by the teacher, Dr. (Lizan Medhat Mohamed), in the presence of the head of the Department of Medical Laboratory Technologies, Prof. Dr. (Abeer Abbas Ali).

The symposium dealt with a number of issues, including:

  • The vaccine helps prevent infection with Covid 19 and from serious diseases that lead to death.
  • Preventing transmission of the virus to others, which increases the number of vaccinated individuals and slows the spread of disease, and contributes to herd immunity, where vaccines work by mimicking an infectious agent – viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms that can cause diseases, and this stimulation leads to ” Teaching the human immune system to respond quickly and effectively against an infectious agent.

The seminar aimed to:

Vaccines traditionally immunize the immune system by presenting a weakened form of the infectious virus that allows the human immune system to build a memory to deal with. That way, the immune system can quickly identify the infectious virus and fight it before it makes us sick.

This is how some COVID-19 vaccines are designed. Also, the development of Covid-19 vaccines so quickly in a relatively short period of time was due to a group of factors that allowed it to expand the scope of research and production without compromising safety, and because of the pandemic, the sample size allocated to the study was larger.

Tens of thousands of volunteers came forward as well as advances in technology as vaccines were manufactured in parallel with clinical trials to speed production. Despite their rapid development, all COVID-19 vaccines approved for use by the World Health Organization are safe and effective and have undergone rigorous testing in clinical trials to demonstrate that they meet internationally agreed reference points for safety and efficacy.
