Preventing the spread of diseases


There are several ways to prevent the spread of diseases such as vaccination. This method can prevent the spread of diseases by building a resistance to the disease that is in the vaccine and eliminating susceptible hosts, which helps the diagnosed rate decrease as well as its ability to spread from human to human or from animal to human. If a certain portion of the population is immune to a certain disease, then the pathogen will die before it reaches the susceptible host.


Vaccinations are a crucial factor to the prevention of spreading diseases. In fact, vaccines are so important that there are several laws that enforces vaccinations in teens and children to prevent the spread of diseases. One law is that in 2014, the CDC recommended that kids receive 69 doses of 16 vaccines between day of birth and age 18. Also, a lot of states in the US require that children receive 29 doses of nine vaccines to attend kindergarten. Another law that the government made is that children enrolled in daycare in several states are required to get multiple doses of 13 vaccines.
