World Immunization Week (April 24th– April 30th)
Thinking about giving your baby the best gift in life? If so, it would be none other than immunization! If you think deeply, showering our infant with goodies, great clothing, fancy toys and other things are temporary sources of joy and happiness to our child. It is also one way to satisfy ourselves and give a pat on our back comforting ourselves as great parents despite our busy work schedules. If there is one gift that would be a great source of comfort and enrich our child’s well-being and heath it is none other than immunization.
Overall Development of a Society
Immunization exists as a ticket not only to good health and well-being of the child but it also has a positive social and economic impact globally. Vaccinating our kids is the most efficient way to curb pain due to sickness, disability or death. When our children grow in a heathy way the family is devoid of unreasonable expenses, spared of the physical and mental agony during such tiring times, parents are not forced to take leaves with loss of pay and finally, the child is provided a calm and peaceful environment nurturing him/her into a world-class individual equipped with great education skills, sporting skills and communication talents.
Immunization is the go-to solution for various diseases such as measles, chicken pox, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis, rotavirus and pneumococcal disease. Read more on each of these diseases by visiting the website www.firsteatright.com. These are diseases that can lead to fatality, serious damages to the health in the form of cancer or brain damage and increases expenditure on hospitalization and medications. But immunization has made possible for eradicating many of these diseases in several countries worldwide. For instance, polio was at its peak several decades back but now it is extremely rare to find a child attacked by this disease. Thanks to vaccination.
The Big ‘Why?’
If you think your child has immunity on his/her own its true. But he/she is not equipped enough to safeguard himself/herself against all forms of illnesses. So, why do you think that vaccination is important for your kid?
Extremely safe as well as effective: Vaccines have entered the market only after thorough analysis and research. There might be side effects such as fever, pain, redness and soreness but these are minimal/negligible when compared to the side effects that could be experienced due to various diseases when we abstain from dispensing vaccines to our children. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages greatly.
Saves Time, Pain & Expenses: When the kid is attacked by some vaccine-preventable disease it means absence from school, missing out on studies and many more. Such diseases cause great expenditure and result in financial crisis to the family. Vaccination is the perfect solution to minimize your expenses, pain and time lost in saving the infant and treating him/her for the disease.
A lifeline for the future: We have entered a stage wherein vaccination has eliminated various diseases that proved to be fatal sometime back. Smallpox is eradicated worldwide due to vaccination and our future generations don’t ever need a vaccination for smallpox. So, following vaccination schedules for our children might promise a future where many of the diseases might not even exist anymore to harm our little ones.
Saves life: Improvements in the medical domain has created a world where many diseases are almost eliminated or minimized barring us of its debilitating side effects. Polio is a disease that’s been prominently almost wiped off our Earth. Safe and effective immunization is the only reason that we are in this threshold right now.
Immunization helps in preventing close to 2 and 3 million deaths every year. Governments are trying to make it as easily accessible and cost-effective as possible and above all, we do not need any lifestyle change for undergoing vaccination except for the fact that the kid should not suffer from high temperature.
World Immunization Week (April 24thto April 30th)
The main aim of this week is to ensure that each and every human living on this planet is protected from vaccine-preventable diseases as much as possible. Though millions of kids are saved due to immunization every year there are more than 20 million children who are not vaccinated. The theme for 2019 is ‘Protected Together: Vaccines Work!’During this weeks, there are campaigns held and activities planned to impart the importance of vaccination to the world.
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
