What are prophylactic vaccinations?

During vaccination, doctors inject a special vaccine in organism. No matter how
paradoxical it may sound, but a baby receives a “useful dose” of disease. In response
to this, his organism produces special cells (antibodies), they protect a baby
from sickness. This way immunity is formed. Vaccinated babies don`t catch infection,
and even if he does, infections proceeds its normal course and easily.

Do diseases temper immunity?

Treat the first vaccinations of your baby with responsibility. As a baby will
receive a majority of them from 0 to 12 months (see calendar of vaccinations).
It`s interesting, that a baby is usually born with immunity to some certain infections.
Immunity to infections is inherited from mother (in a belly antibodies come to
a fetus, and then to a new-born baby through milk). But this immunity is temporary,
it fade away by the end of the first year of life. Here a baby`s health needs
an active support. As whooping-cough, diphtheria, tetanus, poliomyelitis, tuberculosis
and other infections are fatal illnesses.
Don`t worry that the same vaccines have to be injected several times. They are
not “weak”. It`s because active immunity for some illnesses is kept not for the
whole life, but can protect only for several years or even months.
Reaction on injection of an “infection” into a baby`s organism often frightens
parents.
 
Don`t be frightened, it`s just better to prepare

In the day of vaccination watch your baby`s sleep, his behavior in the afternoon,
his appetite. If something bothers you, tell a doctor about it before vaccination.

Remember, you can require an instruction to a vaccine on legal ground, to assure
in its convenience.

After vaccination:

Spend 20 minutes in a hospital. If a baby gets allergy, this will allow you to
receive medical care at once.

Restrict time of communication with people. A baby is producing immunity, and
his organism is busy with this problem, so other microbes are unwanted now.
