Vaccines provide protection against serious infections that could prove to be lethal. They are the safest way of protecting your child's health. Every vaccine is thoroughly tested before being licensed for administration.
Vaccination should NOT be administered if your child has or had:
- High temperature
- Previous severe local or general reaction to a particular vaccine
- Allergy to eggs, in the case of MMR vaccination
- Convulsions in the neonatal period, in the case of whooping cough vaccination
- Note that family history of epilepsy or allergic disorders should not prevent your child from being vaccinated against any of the childhood vaccines.
Vaccines do not cause any reactions in the majority of children. However the following reactions may occasionally develop:
- Redness or swelling at the injections sites
- Note that the risks are far outweighed by the benefits.
Severe reactions are extremely rare and are dealt with appropriately by your doctor.
In areas where the vaccination uptake rate is low, diseases tend to remain widespread. Hence it is essential to achieve an uptake rate of at least 95% degrees in order to achieve effective or total eradication.
Finally remember vaccination is free of charge.
The freezing with liquid nitrogen or other cryogens is an effective and quick way for the removal of warts and other skin lesions.
