About me

I’m Rachael, 23 years old and a final (5th) year Medical Student studying at Bristol University.  
 My main focus is mentoring Medical School applicants. I now have 3 years experience in assisting students with their applications and have developed a bank of both Personal Statements and interview questions. With friends and previous tutees attending Medical Schools across the country I can offer a unique insight into how different Medical Schools work, their interview process and what they look for in applicants.

I am very happy with the tutorials that I've had with Rachael. She researched the area very well in advance before the lesson and she helped improve my knowledge and confidence for my medical school interview. I highly recommend her for interview preparation! Thanks Rachael!

Questions Rachael has answered

How do vaccinations work?

People are immunised against pathogens through vaccination - usually an injection. 

A vaccine is comprised of dead, inactive or weakened pathogen or virus. These act as antigens (foreign proteins) that the body recognises and stimulates the white blood cells (lymphocytes) of the immune system to produce an antibody response. 

When the body first encounters a new antigen it takes time to produce lots of antibodies to fight off the pathogen. When someone is immunised it gives the body time to produce the antibdoes but does not cause disease/illness as the vaccine does not contain live or active pathogens. The immune system remembers what the antigen looks like and the antibody needed to fight it so if the body encounters the same antigen again, it can produce a much quicker immune response producing lots of specific antibodies. 

Vaccines are only specific to the pathogen given becuase the antibodies produced in respone are specific for their shape. 

Vaccines are widesly used to reduce spread of infection amongst a population (less
likely to get an epidemic). If enough people are vaccinated to stop pathogens infecting whole populations it is called herd immunity
