What shots do newborn baby in the hospital

Vaccination of the child begins in the first days after birth. Conventional scheme the baby is vaccinated against hepatitis b and BCG (against tuberculosis).

They are selected not by chance, because the newborn has no immunity of its own, able to fight with the surrounding infections. Contracting tuberculosis is now very easy, because now it is common and easily transmitted even without personal contact with the patient. Usually Bacillus is transferred through airborne droplets and is stored in the air (coughing, sneezing sick) for a long time. Children are most susceptible to this disease. Vaccination against tuberculosis is done in the left arm just above the elbow. It leaves a small scar. Usually easily tolerated, but sometimes there are side effects in the form of increased temperature, irritability, nagrywanie the place of injection, etc. it is Done once, and after that, once a year, check the child's reaction - test, which shows normal number of antibodies in the body.

Vaccination against hepatitis b was done in the child's hip. Vaccination is done three times - at birth, a month and six months of the baby. This is a common scheme, which is recommended for all children. At elevated risk of infection, if the mother or someone from relatives is ill, it is done four times: at birth, a month, two a year. Hepatitis b is now a very common disease, is mainly transmitted through blood. It cannot be cured, but can be chronic form. Its negative effect is liver damage, which can lead to cirrhosis.

What vaccination of the child

To vaccinate or not, every parent decides for himself. According to the law is voluntary. In any case, even in the hospital you are writing the consent or refusal of vaccination. And the medical staff shall consider your desire.

It is now quite common the rejection of all vaccinations.Many believe that they do not protect people from the disease, and can only when infected to exacerbate the situation to lead to a more severe form of the disease. Moreover, vaccination against hepatitis b is modified. And side effects are sometimes very severe, sometimes lead to death (isolated cases). Because it is impossible to predict how a particular organism will react to a particular vaccine. A newborn baby is still too weak to carry this load. And proponents of this view either do not vaccinate or transfer them at a later date (at least year when the child will get stronger).

Minor children of an inoculation can only be done with parental consent. Therefore, your choice is very responsible, and this should be approached deliberately. If you decide to vaccinate your child, it is necessary to observe some rules.

You can't interrupt a course of vaccinations, otherwise they will simply lose power. For example, if hepatitis b vaccination is done three times with a certain interval, then skipping more than three months of life leads to the ineffectiveness of vaccination and want to start all over again.

Vaccinations should be done only by a doctor to special medical institutions,but not at home. As well as careful monitoring of the baby after that. Therefore, the first vaccination the baby is doing still in the hospital, in the event of a negative reaction to provide emergency assistance.

The child before vaccination should be absolutely healthy. In poor health, a weakened immune system, reaction to vaccination can get worse.

And of course, carefully check that the medicine is administered to your baby, as well as compliance with all requirements of hygiene.
