Vaccinations to newborns

A person is affected by various bacteria and viruses that can bring many troubles. After all, it is harmful microorganisms and viruses that cause severe diseases. Seeking ways to combat tuberculosis, tetanus, cobblem, hepatitis and many other diseases, many doctors have come to vaccines to help to develop immunity to terrible ailments.

Today vaccinations are made to everyone, including newborn. The vaccination calendar provides for the introduction of a vaccine against hepatitis B newborn children in the first 12 hours of their life. However, here you need to know that not all newborns need this vaccine, but only to those who have a real opportunity to become infected with hepatitis B. At least so they think in European countries.

In Europe, vaccinations for newborns are made only if the mother is a carrier of the disease. What doctors are learning about by making a blood test of a pregnant woman. In the CIS, the livestock vaccination is carried out. For what? It is difficult to say reliably, since the justification of compulsory vaccination fluctuates between two extreme opinions:

– Actually, everyone is necessary;

– someone’s conspiracy to destroy the nation.

According to the legislation, you can directly refuse vaccinations to a newborn child in a maternity hospital. What a certain part of the parents willingly uses, and the remaining part is simply perplexed how you can not vaccinate your beloved newborn child.

The arguments of both make you think. Basically, people either believe in vaccines or do not believe. It is quite difficult to collect evidence base, since the state healthcare system cannot provide intelligible statistics. Moreover, on the global Internet, visitors to many forums write about inadequate fixation of cases of complications after vaccinations for newborn children.

Up to 28 weeks, namely, it lasts the period when the child is considered newborn, another vaccination is made – BCG. This vaccine is designed to protect a person from acute forms of tuberculosis (important: not from tuberculosis, but from its heavy manifestations). For the first time, this vaccine is made to a newborn child for 3-7 days, the second time every 7 or (and) at 14 years.

Or not do? Agreeing to an injection with a vaccine or refusing it, you must understand why you are doing this. And for this you need to have at least minimal information about: composition, the presence of preservatives and heavy metals, as well as the conditions for its storage and the country of production of vaccination for a newborn child.

Parents should know that BCG vaccine contains living tuberculosis bacteria that cause a “small” body disease. And if the body has a weak immunity, then for a newborn vaccination against tuberculosis can become a source of a complete disease.

The composition of the hepatitis B vaccine includes a preservative on a mercury basis, which cannot pass without a trace for the children’s body (recall the broken mercury thermometers). However, there are vaccines to newborns and without preservatives, you need them. In addition, it is interesting that active microorganism in this type of vaccine is created using genetic engineering.

A common moment for all vaccinations with a newborn (and not only) is that vaccines should be stored in the cold until the moment of injection. Better if you yourself see the ampoule get out of the refrigerator. Well, look at the manufacturer, although it is already difficult to determine who produces the best product.

Vaccinations to newborns are an important step that should be conscious. In knowledge – power! Health to you and your children!
