Questions in Diseases & Vaccines

One of the important sections, PSC never misses in its examinations is diseases and affected organs along with the names of the scientists who discovered the vaccines for the specific diseases. Another highly expected area is common drugs used in medical treatment and their chemical names. In some question papers, we need to identify a medicine which comes under Anaesthetic, Analgesic, Antibiotics, Antihistamine or Narcotics.

This article focuses on most repeated questions in diseases and vaccines. I have prepared two charts where the first chart explains the names of diseases and affected areas.

 The second chart shows the important vaccines and the names of the scientists behind them.
