Baby Vaccination

Baby Vaccination India | Infants, Children, & Teens
Actual parenting starts way before your baby’s birth. But once your bundle of joy has finally arrived, your responsibilities will increase manifold, prime among which is vaccination
to protect your baby from various ailments. This is so because the newborn’s immune system isn’t developed enough. As anxious new parents, you’ll do well to save yourself a lot of anxiety by knowing the reality behind vaccine-related myths
Will my just-born’s immune system accept so many vaccines?
As parents, it is but natural to lose sleep over the array of mandatory vaccines. But rest assured, your good paediatrician is doing this only to protect your child from potential life threatening complications and infections
The extinction of major diseases means vaccination is a farcical exercise
Absolutely untrue! Disease-causing micro-organisms mutate in hitherto unknown ways and constantly keep medical researchers on their toes. This is to say that you can never be absolutely sure, least of all when it comes to your child. So, please don’t compromise on your baby’s health and go through the whole vaccination programme, right up to the time your baby is a toddler, religiously, complete with booster doses
Vaccines initiate autism and other disabilities
Quite on the contrary, they arrest these conditions. There’s absolutely no research to validate such unfounded claims. Suffice it to say that it is a figment of somebody’s fertile imagination
Vaccines provoke the disease they’re supposed to prevent
This couldn’t be further from the truth. Vaccines are toned down germs that are introduced to the child so that her immune system gets to know them and develops the wherewithal to fight them if need be. In common parlance, it’s like getting to know a potential enemy and preparing for a duel
Only older children should be administered vaccines
OK, while we agree that your child gets irritable after most shots, truth is oral substitutes are steadily taking over. Most often, paediatricians might administer local anaesthesia or analgesia if required
