O Ministério da Saúde do Brasil anunciou o lançamento da campanha de vacinação contra o sarampo após a recente detecção de casos no estado de Roraima. Apesar de ser gratuito, nem todos os pais decidem vacinar seus filhos.
Este tópico desperta muita controvérsia. Algumas pessoas acreditam que os pais devem ser legalmente obrigados a vacinar seus filhos, por exemplo, tirando as crianças do jardim de infância. Outras pessoas consideram que cada pai deve ter a liberdade de decidir o que fazer com seus filhos.
Para decidir sobre essas questões, o Ministro da Saúde convocou você e um painel de especialistas.
Que decisão tomará o Ministro da Saúde no final do dia?

This game brings you inside the mind of the great Simba! The son of Mufasa and the right heir to rule the Pride Lands.
When he was a young cub, Simba saw his father's death. His uncle, Scar, made Simba believe that Mufasa's death was Simba's fault (Even though it was Scar, who murdered the king). Thus, he hastily fled away. He got to the jungle, where he met two lovely animals; a meerkat called Timon and a warthog called Pumbaa. Quickly Simba, Timon and Pumbaa became best friends, and now they live the good life in the jungle. They eat delicious insects, drink shakes, lay in hammocks and basically follow the Hakuna Matata rules, which are very simple: Don't worry.
However, this morning Simba met Nala, a gorgeous lioness. Simba remembers Nala from his time as a young and royal cub. Nala told Simba that life in the Pride Lands has gone south since Mufasa's death; Scar took over the land and created a terrible dictatorship where fear and chaos dominate.
Now, Simba has to decide. Should he go back with Nala to the Pride Lands? Should he stay in the jungle, keep living the good life with Timon and Pumba?
What will Simba decide? It all depends on who is going to convince him the best.
