Afraid to go to the center for free vaccination

Last month, there was a volunteer from the center roaming around the village for the free MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) Vaccine.  This is a vaccination to protect the children from three separate illnesses such as the measles, mumps, and rubella in a single injection.  And this is recommended for all children.  If you go to the private clinic this vaccination is a bit expensive, not all can afford especially to those belongs to the poverty line.  That is why this free vaccination is given to everyone, especially to less fortunate ones.  I went to the center and grabbed this free vaccination for my 1-year-old niece and 5 years old nephew.

However, because of the dengvaxia vaccine issue, some parents did not go and preferred to stay at home.  They are scared that something might bad happened to their children.  They thought that the free vaccination from the government is not safe and will kill and harm their children.  We can’t blame them because they just want the safety of their children.  I do hope that the government especially the city health will do something about it.  To let the parents know the importance of this vaccination to their kids.  And that this is a safety vaccination.  So that the parents will not be afraid to go to have free vaccination at the center.

Free Rabies Vaccination

One of the serious disease that caused by virus is a rabies.  This virus infects animals including dogs and cats.  If an infected animals bite a person, the virus will transfer to human and it may caused death if not treated right away.  If bitten by infected animals, do not waste your time in self-medication just like what others do because this is a very serious issue.  The only thing that we should do is going to the hospital/clinic and have anti-virus vaccination.  This treatment is very important because rabies is always fatal.  Lots of victims died due to rabies because they are bitten by dogs and cats.

Owning a dog comes with a big responsibility like regular rabies vaccination.  Sometimes dogs are aggressive especially if they saw a person inside the house that is not familiar to them, or a passers-by.  This is what I have experienced of my dog.  Before it does scares me a lot thinking that what if my dog bites a person.  After the free rabies vaccination conducted by some government employees in our village, it lessen my worries.  But still I do not let my dog go out because he is very aggressive.  Even if he has rabies vaccination already, I should be careful still.  Prevention is better than cure, as they say.
