For the past decade, whether to get your child vaccinated or not has been a global dilemma. In the below video, Dr. Tamer Shawky from Kiddy Clinics answers the most common questions mothers have about vaccines. Watch the video and get the insight you need to make sure your child is healthy:
Is it best to get your children vaccinated or leave them to build natural antibodies by actually getting the virus?
Children who get vaccinated can be up to 97% immune to a virus. However, when you leave your child to pick up the virus naturally, the side effects can be a lot stronger giving them quite a rough time. That’s why it is best to make sure your children get the vaccines they need at the right time to prevent any health risks from developing.
What is the importance of combination vaccines?
Instead of having your child vaccinated against individual viruses, a combination vaccine merges several vaccines in one injection. This is less painful for your child.
Why should a child get vaccinations at specific ages?
The WHO has made the vaccines united globally at each age in order to allow the child to get their needed vaccines wherever they are in the world, as well as follow the same protocol and standard age procedure that will allow anyone anywhere to know what their child needs during that age.
What happens if my child misses their vaccine?
If your child is facing health issues or facing difficulties during a scheduled vaccine, then the best alternative is to head to your health care provider or pediatrician as soon as your child is feeling better to put them back on track. This will ensure they get the vaccines they need to stay healthy.
