交代背景

Recently a massive pharmaceutical scandal has hit the front page of every Chinese social media.


One of the country’s largest vaccine pharmaceutical company, CHANGSHENG, had been manufacturing defective vaccines for children, including Rabies and DPT vaccine.


DPT vaccines is listed in the national recommended immunization schedule for children aged 0 to 18 years old.

The outrage swept Chinese social media as Chinese government called for an immediate investigation into the sales of faulty vaccines. There is no doubt that such incident has severely damaged the reputation of domestic pharmaceutical industry, it has also well crossed a moral line. Of course, the manufacturer should receive serious legal punishment.


个人感想与情绪

The moment I heard about this news I felt my stomach was pulled down by someone. Fury and anger quickly filled up my mind.


How can a drug company be so irresponsible and greedy!? Imagine the 250,000 innocent children been injected with such defective vaccines and their parents had no idea what physical damage would the vaccine have caused to their children and potential consequences caused by vaccine failure. I would never forgive the company if my child had been given such vaccines.


An even scarier thought just came to my mind: what if this company is not the only one making those substandard vaccines? What if this is like a back-door deal well known in the Chinese pharmaceutical industry? How would we still be able to trust medication made in China? Who should we really blame for such scandals?


个人建议

I believe the government should definitely make a move and solve this issue by setting up stricter legislation and regulations to punish the offenders and send out a well-drawn picture to all pharmaceutical manufactures that if you dare break the law, you will receive the most severe punishment.


Andy老师的话

虽然疫苗主题看似生词量很大,内容很深奥,但是在雅思口语Part2中,更看重的是考生的表达能力,而非专业知识。如果考生不认识DPT或者RABIES等生词,至少疫苗VACCINE这个应该是可以掌握的。在正文中,背景叙述部分可以略微缩短,而注重在后半段的情绪抒发和个人建议,因为这些表达情绪的关键词和表达都可以事先准备好并且在不同的雅思口语话题中都可互相套用。而最后的个人建议部分可以依照考试中现场情况略微延长,因为这一段的生词和概念是相对简单的。


一些思考

我们常为自己建立社会责任感,从小就知道保护环境的意义是为了持续性发展,在碰到这样推翻一切原则的人为危机时,就是我们反思企业责任心及法律制度的时刻了。


最后,祝大家屠鸭成功!
