DPT means ... Diphtheria, Pertussis, and Tetanus. "DPT" is referring to the vaccine, that is available to prevent these diseases.

AIDS means ... Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. This is a fatal disease that attacks the immune system ... and renders the host with little or no defense against infections/cancers etc ...

BCG means ... Bacille Calmette-Gurin, which is a live vaccine that was developed by two French scientists Calmette and Gurin in the 1920s. It helps protect babies and young children against the most severe forms of TB disease.
