VARICELLA VACCINATION | OET SPEAKING ROLE PLAY SCRIPT

Patient

Your preparation time is over. You can now start your only speaking role play. Don’t worry if I stop you when the time is up.

Good afternoon, My name is Narso Andrew, one of the nurses working in this clinic. How may I help you today?

Patient

Good afternoon nurse. I am here to get advice on the free immunization that has been offered by the clinic for my daughter against chickenpox.

All right, I’m happy to help you. For better communication, How may I address you?

Patient

You can call me patricia.

Okay Patricia, Now tell me in detail about your concern.

Patient

Actually Nurse, I think it is not safe for my daughter to have the varicella vaccine because she has already had chickenpox.

Your thoughts are reasonable. Basically immunization and exposure to chickenpox is not related. I’ll explain about the vaccination winners.

Patient

I am worried that she will suffer bad side effects from this vaccination That is the reason why I am seeking your advice.

Being a mother I can understand your thoughts. However Patricia, I can reassure you that it is safe to have the vaccine even after the exposure to the chickenpox virus. In fact, there will be two doses of the vaccine to be taken. Hence making it more effective than the natural immunity developed by the immune system.

Patient

Okay nurse.

In addition, it is important to have the vaccine, because in case your daughter’s prior infection was not actually caused by the chickenpox virus, her immune system wouldn’t develop immunity against the chickenpox. Thus, she will not be able to tolerate the virus attack. I hope it is clear to you patricia.

Patient

Yes, that might be true.

Well Patricia, may I know why you are worried about taking the immunization?

Patient

Nurse I am worried about the bad side effects of the vaccine. Most importantly, I fear my daughter might get shingles. I have heard it is a painful condition caused by the same virus responsible for chicken pox.

I acknowledge your concerns. Firstly, let me assure you that most of the side effects are mild. Some of the side effects your daughter may encounter can be low grade fever which is easily curable. Next is sleepiness mainly due to the dosage or else irritability, which is not even going to last for a while and so on. Whereas severe reactions are really rare to occur.

Patient

Alright nurse.

Now let us consider the shingles. I agree that the shingles are also caused by the same varicella virus. Perhaps, it’s worth understanding that the shingles won’t result from the vaccination. It is guaranteed that your daughter is unlikely to get shingles from the vaccine.

Patient

Are you sure about it?

Yes of course Patricia. Moreover, shingles are generally affected for older adults and mostly in those who are immunosuppressed.

Patient

Oh all right.

Patricia, Are your doubts cleared?

Patient

To be honest, I don’t understand the benefits of the vaccination program. After all, chicken pox is not a life threatening condition. Can you please explain the importance of immunization?

Patricia, your question is really sensible. I can explain the importance of the varicella vaccination program to you.

Patient

Alright, You may Please proceed.

The main and foremost benefit of the vaccination program is to lower the need for medical care. That is, if your daughter gets chickenpox, she requires more medical care and support. However, vaccination programs can absolutely eliminate the chance of such occurrence, and thereby require no medical care.

Patient

Alright, I agree with that.

If there are no illnesses, this in turn reduces the workday absences for parents and carers, and can lead a hassle free life isn’t it? Right patricia?

Patient

Yes, What you have said is right.

Thank you for agreeing with my words. Now Patricia, Shall I schedule the vaccination appointment for your daughter?

Patient

I think the vaccine is probably a good thing for my daughter. Yes you may book the schedule for her.

Thank you for your understanding and confirmation. Your daughter’s vaccination appointment is done.

Patient

Thank you nurse. That is the end of your speaking role play. I wish you all the very best.

Thank you.
