Deciphering the name of the vaccination of ADMD to children (adsorbed diphtheria-tetanus, in small doses) explains the vaccine against which diseases.
This vaccine is a variant of the DTP vaccine, which is familiar to most parents, which, in addition to diphtheria and tetanus, also protects against pertussis, but for various reasons it can not be used, and then ADSM comes to replace it.
The composition of the vaccine (or vaccination) of ADS-M for children is as follows: in one milliliter of the drug – 10 units of diphtheria and the same amount of tetanus toxoid (the so-called substances that do not have pronounced toxic effects, but stimulate the production of antibodies capable of resisting pathogens).
The ADSM vaccine is called bivalent, because it is directed against two diseases at once.
In the competence of the doctor – to choose the variant of the vaccine, which will be for the patient is effective and safe.
Nevertheless, the parents are worried; Is it better to use a monovalent drug Instead of the more widely used bivalent?
Very important doctors and the second revaccination, which falls on the period of puberty teenagers, when as a result of hormonal changes in the body temporarily reduces its immunity, including the most dangerous diseases.
In order for everything to go the best way, pediatricians ask their parents for a few days before the introduction of the vaccine ADSM follow the instructions:
- try to keep the child in less contact with other people;

Doctors believe that neglect of small things can not be - And suddenly the kid will pick up any virus, the same cold?
He will have to spend a piece of immunity to fight against these unforeseen obstacles, and the protective functions of the body will be weakened at a time when they have to confront a more serious test.
