Vaccinations for children "ON Clinic Kharkiv"
The human immune system protects the body against infectious agents.
But in children, the immunity is not formed yet and is not able to suppress infections effectively enough. Therefore, babies are sick more often than adults, and the course of many pathologies is much more severe.
The aim of vaccination of children is to strengthen their immunity and “teach” it to recognize dangerous viruses and bacteria. The vaccine contains toxins or some elements of infectious agents. Their amount is enough for the immune system to recognize the infection and develop the appropriate antibodies. As a result, the body “learns” to recognize a specific disease and to confront it, which significantly reduces the risk of infection in the future.
The child’s condition after vaccination does not change, although the body's reaction is possible:
- a slight increase in temperature;
- loss of appetite;
- increased fatigue and drowsiness.
But all the symptoms are eliminated on their own within 1-3 days and do not require treatment.
Also, swelling and redness may occur at the injection site as a side reaction. In this case, it is necessary to contact always your doctor for consultation.
Vaccination is carried out from the first day of life and is safe for the body of a newborn. However, the procedure should be carried out only by an experienced physician after examining the baby.
Contraindications to vaccination are following:
