It should be everyone’s goal to prevent disease. Prevention is more cost-effective than the treatment itself. With immunizations, we can achieve preventive measures and gain added safety and protection.
For children, it is best to get them up to date on their vaccines. With that being said, here are some immunizations for children 6 years old and under:
- Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver. It causes organ scarring, liver failure, and even cancer. If left untreated, it could lead to life-threatening circumstances. The Hepatitis B vaccine is an effective preventive solution recommended for infants and children up to 18 years.
Rotavirus is a common cause of children’s diarrhoeal diseases. The virus can be transmitted by the fecal-oral route. Although it is a manageable disease in childhood, it should not be taken lightly. The rotavirus vaccine is a safe and recommended vaccine for protection against rotavirus infections.
Measles is an infection that begins in the respiratory system. It can be a serious health risk for small children. Symptoms of this contagious disease include fever, dry cough, runny nose, and sore throat. Measles, however, can be prevented with the MMR vaccine, which also helps protect against mumps and rubella.
