Why Vaccination is must for children?

Why vaccination is must for children?

For best protection against disease, your child should get vaccinated on time, starting at 2 months of age, and follow the recommended schedule as closely as possible. Vaccinations not only protect your child from deadly diseases, like polio, tetanus, and diphtheria, but they also keep other children safe by eliminating or greatly decreasing dangerous diseases that used to spread from child to child. Vaccination is a way to create immunity to protection from some diseases. This is done by using small amounts of a killed or weakened germ that causes the disease. Germs can be viruses such as the measles virus or bacteria. Vaccines stimulate the immune system to react as if there were a real infection. It fends off the "infection" and remembers the germ. Then, it can fight the germ if it enters the body later.

Immunizations can save your child’s life:- Because of advances in medical science, your child can be protected against more diseases than ever before. Some diseases that once injured or killed thousands of children, have been eliminated completely and others are close to extinction - primarily due to safe and effective vaccines. Polio is one example of the great impact that vaccines have had in the United States. Polio was once America’s most-feared disease, causing death and paralysis across the country, but today, thanks to vaccination, there are no reports of polio.

Follow the recommended schedule:- The recommended schedule was created to protect infants and young children in early life, when they are most vulnerable, and before they are potentially exposed to vaccine-preventable diseases. The recommended schedule is safe and based on science. If parents follow the recommended schedule minimizes the number of visits to your child’s health care provider, which means less stress for you and your child.

Vaccine ingredients

All ingredients of vaccines play necessary roles either in making the vaccine, triggering the body to develop immunity, or in ensuring that the final product is safe and effective. Some of these include:-

  • Adjuvant:- help boost the body’s response to vaccine. (Also found in antacids, buffered aspirin, antiperspirants, etc.
  • Stabilizers:- help keep vaccine effective after manufactured.
  • Formaldehyde:- is used prevent contamination by bacteria during the vaccine manufacturing process. Resides in body naturally (more in body than vaccines). (Also, found in environment, preservatives, and household products.)
  • Thimerosal:- is also used during the manufacturing process but is no longer an ingredient in any vaccine except multi - dose vials of the flu vaccine. Single dose vials of the flu vaccine are available as an alternative. No reputable scientific studies have found an association between thimerosal in vac­cines and autism.
