1. Vaccines contain pathogens. True or false?

  • True: But only dead or inactive forms of them; in this way, immunity can develop at little or no risk to the patient
  • False: This would be an entirely unnecessary risk; immunity is developed more effectively without the presence of pathogens to elicit illness

2. Antibiotics are drugs which kill pathogens, or infective bacteria. True or false?

  • True: Antibiotics destroy the pathogens, thereby killing them. They are 'anti-bio', 'against-life'
  • False: Antibiotics merely reduce the pathogen to an ineffective and harmless state. For efficiency, these ineffective pathogens can then be removed for use in vaccines, for immunisation
