Toui: Sabaidee Caty! Caty: Sabaidee Toui! Toui: Caty, do you get a flu shot every year? Caty: Of course. It helps so much. I haven’t had a bad flu since I started getting the vaccination. Toui: I’ve been getting a flu shot every year since 2017. Caty: What about vaccines in general? Did you get all your childhood vaccines? Toui: Yes. What about you? Caty: I did. And I made sure my children were vaccinated on schedule. And they are healthy young adults now! Toui: But, in some places, vaccination rates are dropping. I have a video clip about the growing number of unvaccinated children in the Philippines. Caty: Let’s watch Play video Reasons for the high numbers of unvaccinated children include strict lockdowns during the pandemic that kept families from routine medical appointments, plus lingering mistrust of vaccines after hundreds of thousands of Filipino children received a dengue vaccine in 2016 and 2017 called Dengvaxia. Evidence later showed the vaccine could increase the risk of a severe form of the disease in some people. Several studies in the Philippines revealed the Dengvaxia debacle made parental trust in vaccines drop, including mistrust of vaccines that have been routine for children for decades. Health officials say this led to measles outbreaks. Toui: The report says families stopped making “routine” medical appointments. Can you explain the meaning of routine. Caty: Yes. A routine is a series of actions that are taken in the same order on a regular basis. Toui: Okay... Caty: For example, every morning my husband makes breakfast and coffee while I take the dogs for a walk. When I return, we eat. Then we read the newspaper. That is our morning routine. Toui: So, that is a routine…I like to exercise. My daily workout is a routine. What about the word evidence? You hear it often in stories about trials. Caty: That’s true. Evidence is all the available material that can provide proof of something. Toui: Got it. And finally, the word severe means…? Caty: Severe is an adjective. In this case it means very bad or harmful. Thanks, Caty. Now it’s time for pronunciation practice. Toui: That’s all for today, Caty! Thank you. Caty: You’re welcome! ບັນດາທ່ານມາຮອດນີ້ລາຍການຂອງພວກເຮົາກໍໄດ້ໆົດແລ້ວ. ພົບກັນໃໝ່ໃນຄັ້ງຕໍ່ໄປ. ສະບາຍດີ.
