Some people can’t stand the sound of Mosquitoes, let alone the actual Mosquito. It almost sounds like a small insect on a mini, ok very mini, motorbike, rushing past you. But how can a motorbike be in mid-air, you might say? Ok, a very mini insect motorbike with wings. Perhaps the insect stole some Red Bull energy drink and grew some wings. Wait a minute, that’s right, Mosquitoes have wings. You might get jumbo-sized Mosquitoes doing a Spanish dance right past you – ‘Look at this....and this...and can you do this’ (of course in Mosquito language). I can just see them making another insect movie, like Ants, out of this one.
So have I got your attention with Mosquitoes and insects? Ok, now let me get you interested in immunization and vaccination. Big words aren’t they; which almost sound like big procedures, but are they, let’s find out? People think the big and nasty Mosquitoes and insects are overseas, so there is no need for vaccination and immunization; but what about here. The sounds of insects on motorbikes is unique, but being bitten by Mosquitoes or other weird and wonderful motorbikes with wings is another thing.
It’s like, ‘hey, how you going? Have some of this disease while you are there’ (this is the Mosquitoes and other insects talking to you). Or, ‘I want to suck your blood’, almost like a Vampire, because that is pretty much the sole purpose of a Mosquito, to suck your blood (invoice).
But you know who can be an even bigger insect, you guessed right, our fellow human being, and without any vampirous bite, but perhaps a similar sound to a insect motorbike with wings. Yes, all it takes is an ‘achoo, coff coff or a rub on your expensive shirt from your bigger insect friend here. No offence fellow human being, still love ya. Enter Vaccination and Immunization....
It is hard to believe one jab can actually help you. You might think it has to be this big process, almost like you’ve come in contact with nuclear waste and need to be de-contaminated immediately. It’s funny to see someone getting vaccinated for the first time. The doctor takes out the needle and begins to prepare...the jab, which almost feels like a KO for this first-timer. And the jab gets closer, closer, closer, argh..and...guess what...Mr or Mrs ‘jab me’ has fainted – ‘is it over? is it over?’ Well, we still haven’t even started.
Then you get the joyful jab junkie, the JJJ, who shows off his or her marvellous jab, testing it on an overseas trip in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, even finding a healthy Mosquito or Wasp nest in the Amazon Rainforest and jumping in front of it...good one Mr or Mrs JJJ – ‘you see, the jab is working fiiiiiiiiine’ (the Mosquito or Wasp are starting to chase them).
Jab, Jab and away.
