Good day to all readers of Alimero! I wanted to discuss with you the topic of vaccinations. Parents are divided into two types: the first – for vaccinations, the second – against. I always belonged to the first category.
Of course, I was not zealous, as I consider some vaccines far from mandatory. For example, varicella vaccination. Why is it needed? To temporarily give your child immunity from chickenpox? What is the point if this immunity is only for a few years and a child in adolescence can become infected with this disease. And as you know, the later you get chickenpox, the more difficult the disease is.
So, from the maternity hospital, we gave our daughter all the required vaccinations. Often, everything was done on time, but there were times when doctors gave meadotra due to illness or allergies. Everything went smoothly until my daughter went to the kindergarten.
She began to walk in the month before last July. She immediately began to get sick there often. Sometimes they sat at home for a long time, maintaining a small quarantine. And now, after a year, we have not done a single vaccination. Already missed a couple of serious vaccinations. I don’t know how we will catch up, but I can’t even lead a child to the reaction of manta if:
– the child was sick less than two weeks ago;
– The child has some signs of reduced immunity (snot or cough begin);
– Someone from family members is sick.
A vaccine is a drug made up of weakened microorganisms that cause a disease. If the immunity is weakened, then having vaccinated, there is a big chance to get complications. I’m probably too vigilant about this mother, so I’ll take my child to the mantle and other vaccinations only when she is completely healthy and the household too.
Another interesting issue is the choice of vaccine. Here again, one can observe two camps – for imported vaccines and for domestic ones.
Imported vaccines have a high quality of cleaning, do not contain virus cells. Due to this, there is less chance of vaccination complications.
Domestic vaccines are live, they contain microorganisms of the virus. Import vaccine paid, domestic – free.
No matter how much I shoveled the Internet, children have reactions to both imported and our vaccines. The question is, how many parents complain about domestic vaccines and how many are silent about imported ones.
All people are individual. I believe that it is impossible to predict the reaction of the body to a particular vaccine. We put domestic vaccines, I did not see a strong reaction to them, everything is within the limits of acceptable.
Do you vaccinate your child, if so, which vaccine?
