The Pneumococcal Vaccines.
I am considering to give Azryl this vaccine after facing the facts that We need to provide a shield armour to the little one due to so many odd diseases suddenly appeared and attacking our harmless child.
Now, what is pneumococcal vaccine?
This vaccine protects against pneumococcal (pronounced new-m'COCKL) infections, which mostly strike children under age 5 and can lead to some of the worst childhood diseases. Kids under 2 years old are most at risk. Pneumococcal infections are one of the most common causes of death in the United States from a disease that's preventable through a vaccine.
Before the vaccine came along, pneumococcal infection caused more than 700 cases of meningitis, 13,000 blood infections, and 5 million ear infections in children under 5 every year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The infection is caused by pneumococcus bacteria, also known as Streptococcus pneumoniae. These bugs live in the mucous lining of the nose and in the back of the throat, and when plentiful enough can cause an infection in the respiratory tract, middle ear, or sinus cavities.
Pneumococcal bacteria are spread by close contact and through coughing and sneezing. Diseases such as meningitis and pneumonia can crop up within days of infection. Symptoms of pneumococcal pneumonia usually include fever and chills with shaking or trembling, as well as chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, rapid heart rate, fatigue, and weakness. Nausea, vomiting, and headaches are also associated with pneumococcal pneumonia, but are less common.Though antibiotics such as penicillin can kill the offending bacteria, up to 40 percent of the strains are resistant to antibiotics. So experts highly recommend the vaccine, which is effective in up to 90 percent of people who get it. The vaccine can even prevent some of the most serious ear infections among children.
