People of all ages are becoming unwell at an increasing rate on an annual basis, and this can be attributed to either a sickness or a pre-existing ailment. Because they are known to develop antibodies that can combat a variety of illnesses, vaccinations are a tried and tested technique of preventative treatment. On the other hand, it is quite necessary for you to have the assistance of medical professionals who are able to direct you along the road.

What exactly are these vaccines?

A vaccine is a biological substance that makes you less likely to get a certain disease. Vaccines generally have a substance in them that looks like a disease-causing microorganism. These substances are usually weaker or dead versions of the microorganism, its toxins, or any of its surface proteins. The agent is something that tells the body’s defense system that the agent is foreign and needs to be destroyed. The agent also needs to remember the foreign agent so that the immune system can more easily recognize it and kill any germs it comes across in the future.

Why are Vaccines important?

During the past years, vaccinations in India have saved more than a billion lives and prevented countless people from falling prey to a wide range of illnesses and disabilities. However, vaccine-preventable diseases such as mumps, measles, and whooping cough are still a threat. They continue affecting children, thus, resulting in hospitalisations and deaths each year. Immunisations are important for two main reasons. First, to protect yourself and second, to protect those around you. Vaccines are one of the best ways to prevent diseases.

What are the benefits of Vaccines?

While the benefits of immunisation are invisible, the idea is that you or your child will not become ill with any disease. Sometimes, it may be tempting to say ‘NO’ to immunisation. However, this puts health at risk of catching some severe or fatal diseases. In reality, taking a vaccination is better and safer than not taking one. Vaccination may not be 100% effective, but it is the best defence against epidemics that kill or disable millions of people.

What are the different Vaccinations for children and adults?

Appropriate age-related vaccines are formulated for both children and adults at various stages of their life, to prevent them from contracting certain diseases and health issues. Mentioned below are some vaccines that are essential for children, young adolescents and adults.

Vaccines for new-born babies through 12 months

Vaccines for toddlers aged 1 to 2 years
  • Once your baby turns a year old, he or she needs a few vaccines which include the MMR vaccine that protects them against measles, mumps; and rubella, which could avoid blindness, pneumonia, deafness, mental retardation, and more.
  • DTaP is a standard dose that is given to help protect infants from tetanus, diphtheria and more.
  • Varicella is a vaccine that combats chickenpox.
  • Hepatitis A vaccine helps protect children against liver diseases that are caused by the Hepatitis A virus.
Vaccines for children between 4 to 6 years of age
  • DTaP, Polio boosters, MMR and Varicella, are vaccinations that be must be given to children before they start attending school /school/day day care.
  • Make sure your child receives his boosters as early as at four years of age.
Vaccines for adolescents between 11 to 12 years of age
  • Tdap is a vaccine that protects against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis.
  • MCV / Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine helps the body fight against infections of the fluid and lining around the brain and spinal cord (meningitis), and bloodstream infections.
  • HPV or Human Papillomavirus Vaccine protects against viruses that cause about 70% of cervical cancer in women and others diseases in both, males and females.
Vaccines for adults
Adults need immunisation as well. Over time, our immunity to tetanus, pertussis, and diphtheria fade off, and other vaccines are needed that are based on one’s age and lifestyle. A few vaccinations for adults are:
  • Tdap, which helps fight tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis.
  • Influenza vaccine to protect from flu , a viral respiratory illness.
  • Hepatitis B, which is recommended for those adults who are at risk.
  • MMR, for adults who have never had measles, mumps or rubella.
  • Varicella, for those who have never had chickenpox.
