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.

Vaccination Orientation

The school where my nephew is studying was conducting a vaccination orientation to all the parents.  This is to help the parents how important it is to their child for protection and prevention.  The parents were asked to bring the baby book of their child to see the vaccination the kid has when they are still babies.  The orientation is indeed very helpful because lots of information has been given and discussed.  The orientation lasted for almost five hours.  Five long hours but it is worth it because the parents are educated on the importance of vaccination to their kids.  As they say, Health is Wealth, so it is very important to take good care of our health always.

The school will give three (3) more vaccination for the kids.  It is for free so everybody must grab this once in a lifetime opportunity.  Though they can have these vaccinations anytime at the pediatrician/doctors, they must pay for it and it is a bit expensive.  The said free vaccination is to be announced once the schedule is fixed.  We will give first the baby book of my nephew so they can see my nephew’s vaccination records.  I am really glad the school offers this kind of opportunity.
