Vaccines, Antibiotics, Hormones

Production of Vaccines, Antibiotics, Hormones

Production of vaccine.

Vaccines are the things that protect humans from infectious diseases. Vaccines take 6 – 22 months to produce. It takes 5 steps to make them.

  1. The first step of making vaccine is generating the antigen that will trigger the immune response.
  2. Second step is to release and isolate the antigen. The antigen will be separated from the cells and isolated from the proteins and other parts of the growth medium that are still present.
  3. In the third step the antigen needs to be purified in order to have a high quality.
  4. The fourth step is to add to other components. Including the adjuvant, which is a material that enhances the immune response to a supplied antigen. Due to antigens and other ingredients mixing, combination vaccines are harder to make.




Antibiotics are medicine for infections. Penicillin is the first antibiotic that was discovered and the greatest advancement in antibiotics, in 1928 Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin by accident. He came back from a vacation and noticed that few glass plates were open. The glass tube for bacteria were opened and some mold go into it. The mold killed the bacteria and when Fleming came back, he found out. That is how penicillin was made.

Antibiotics tend to have side effects. The most common side effect from antibiotics are stomachaches and nausea. Other side effects include sun sensitivity, headaches etc.

Career Conversation

I spoke to Jackson Yeoh and Samantha Coughlan, Jackson Yeoh is a senior animator and Samantha Coughlan is a professional Performer. All the people that I talked to didn’t really inspired me because I am still at a stage where I don’t know what I want to be, I think if knew what I wanted to be I would have been inspired and would be interested a little more. Samantha’s career piqued my interested a little bit, and Jackson’s career did too because I know that in the future, I want to entertain people and Jackson, he animates films that people enjoy while watching and Samantha does voice overs in films or movies and also games and who doesn’t enjoy movies and games. The most challenging parts about being a senior animator is obviously the animating and the amount of work you need to put into it and I am not the best with computers and animating so I don’t think I will be a good fit to be a senior animator, I am able to get the abilities to animate things but I don’t find it very interesting and I don’t think I want to pursue a career in animating. Also the most challenging parts about acting is the acting and putting in the hours to becoming a great actor, I am ok at acting I’ve been in a play for church and I got many compliments, I would take acting classes and get a personal trainer to improve my acting skills. I read that some big actors have to completely change what they look like body wise for a role in a movie. I did find the Careers and Conversations morning valuable because there were some careers that I found interesting and maybe wanted to become in the future and I got to learn about them.

Two Week Goal Reflection

My goal was to get at least eight hours of sleep and wake up at 4-4:30 everyday to go to basketball practice, I achieved my goal but if I am being honest I forgot about my goal but I still achieved it, I achieved it by going to bed at 7:30 and falling asleep by 8. The most challenging part about achieving my goal was falling asleep and waking up, it’s funny because when I went to bed i couldn’t fall asleep easily but when I had to wake up I wanted nothing but more sleep. I don’t think I would do anything different next time I think what I did to achieve my goal was the right way to do it. I would love to keep going on with my goal and get better at basketball but sadly after all my hard work I did not make the basketball, I will make a new goal, maybe I will go to an open gym two times a week and work on basketball.

Science wonder project

How does understanding the affects that will occur if our sun disappears help us prepare for this outcome?

Without the sun the earth would be a frozen planet in the first year so the only way to survive such temperatures would be to get as close to the core as possible.

We would not be able to breathe because solar energy is turned into oxygen through plants, but good news is that we would still be able to breathe for the first 1000 years because there would be enough oxygen to last us the first 1000 years on earth, after that we would all die.

At first, we would not notice for the first 8 light minutes (light minutes are the distance light can travel in a minute. We would not be in the gravitational pull of the sun and start flying around in space in a straight line.

When the sun burns out earth would be cold enough to freeze the top layer of the ocean but creatures that live deep under water won’t have a problem.

In order to survive we would need to dig as close to the earths core as possible and start a civilization there, or we would need to find a way to live at the bottom of the ocean without our bodies being compressed into nothing.





Sugar Detectives

I found it surprising that a SMALL Oreo blizzard from Dairy Queen has 68 grams of sugar and it concerned how much sugar I have been having daily. I also didn’t think a junior chicken sandwich from McDonald’s would have 5 grams of sugar, if such a small burger has that much sugar I am wondering how much sugar a regular burger has.
