Did you ever know that vaccinating your child at regular intervals, you’re not only keeping them safe, but also avoid other children from getting infected when your baby comes in contact with them. According to the tests conducted by the scientists, vaccinations are safe. Some schools only admit children who have taken proper vaccinations and might not prefer them if the former is not attempted. Hence, it becomes important for parents to get their child vaccinated in order to ensure them a healthy living. Here are some of the vaccinations that are required for your kid at an early age. Read them for your knowledge and do not neglect them.
1. Rotavirus vaccination: Rotavirus is a very contagious virus that causes severe diarrhea and is usually followed by fever and vomiting. Hence, it is important to give your child the first vaccination within 14 weeks of age and second vaccination must be given by the age of 9 months.
2. Chickenpox(varicella) vaccination: There’s an old saying that a child must suffer at least once with chickenpox. But, gone are those days. It is always better to have vaccination than the disease itself. Doctors recommend that every child must have his first chickenpox vaccination by the age of 13 months and the second vaccination by the age of 5-7 years.
3. Meningococcal vaccination: This meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection that causes blood poisoning. Children may get this disease by staying in nearby quarters, kissing, sharing vessels, etc. Although this vaccination has some minor side-effects like fatigue, soreness, pain & redness, and headache, this vaccination is relatively safe for all individuals except for the ones who have severe allergic reactions to previous meningococcal vaccinations.
Hope, after knowing about the benefits of these vaccinations, you get your child treated well and give them a healthy and safe life.Tags: Vaccinations
