The Vaccination Board game

Discuss how children are given vaccinations at various stages in their lives to promote health e.g. MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella). Full list is available @ http://hse.ie/eng/health/immunisation/pubinfo/pcischedule/immschedule/

Instructions

Photocopy board game and Vaccinations onto A4 coloured cards (See overleaf)
Cut each vaccinations card into 4 individual cards.
• Lay the 36 cards around the room in number order so they make a pathway
• Place the vaccination cards beside the board card of the same name
• Give each Patrol a dice and a set of counters
• Each Guide take her turn throwing the dice
• Patrol must throw a 6 to start
• The first time they roll a 6, the Patrol walk to the first vaccination spot and place a counter (either the whole Patrol or one Guide depending on space) and collect a vaccination card.
• Continue playing until at least one Patrol have collected a set of vaccination cards (6 in total)

Debrief/Discussion
Discuss the game some more with your Guides:
• Explain how, when germs enter our bodies, our immune system recognises them as foreign bodies (antigens). Our immune system then produces the antibodies to fight them.
• In Developing countries, the children are not so lucky and do not have access to immunisation.
• If your immune system is low because of lack of food, clean water or proper shelter your body is not able to fight the germs.
• In these poorer countries a lot of children and adults do not have some of the basic necessities of life and get very ill and/or die.
