Azryl status after the jab

Hallu peeps!!

Its monday morning and here i am on my office desks..Alot of updates news coming up ..lots to tell...regarding azryl progress, movie review, and myself update as well.

But first and foremost i would like to update azryl progress after taking the pneumococcal jab.Not just that he is also been given rotavirus oral medication as well.

What is rotavirus?

Rotavirus is one of the most common causes of diarrhea, and severe infection (rotavirus gastroenteritis) is the leading cause of severe, dehydrating diarrhea in infants and young children.

Signs and Symptoms
Kids with a rotavirus infection have fever, nausea, and vomiting, often followed by abdominal cramps and frequent, watery diarrhea. Kids may also have a cough and runny nose. As with all viruses, though, some rotavirus infections cause few or no symptoms, especially in adults.
Sometimes the diarrhea that accompanies a rotavirus infection is so severe that it can quickly lead to dehydration. Signs of dehydration include: thirst, irritability, restlessness, lethargy, sunken eyes, a dry mouth and tongue, dry skin, fewer trips to the bathroom to urinate, and (in infants) a dry diaper for several hours.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) now recommends a rotavirus vaccine be included in the lineup of routine immunizations given to all infants.
The RotaTeq vaccine has been found to prevent approximately 75% of cases of rotavirus infection and 98% of severe cases. Another vaccine, Rotarix, also is available and is effective in preventing rotavirus infection. Your doctor will have the most current information about these vaccines.
A previous rotavirus vaccine was taken off the market in 1999 because it was linked to an increased risk for intussusception, a type of bowel obstruction, in young infants. Neither RotaTeq nor Rotarix have been found to have this increased risk.
Frequent hand washing is the best tool to limit the spread of rotavirus infection. Kids who are infected should stay home from childcare groups until their diarrhea has ended. In hospitals, rotavirus outbreaks are controlled by isolating infected patients and following strict hand-washing procedures.

My azryl was given rotarix.He took it very well.He even smile to his paed Dr Francis.hehehehe.

Next was the pneumococcal jab.Well this time he cried a bit.hehehehe.But only a little while.He is one tough boy.Oh the type of the jab is syncfluorix.Azryl was overall ok...

Again..Do consult your paed regarding this jab.Its quite pricey as well and do take note it will not cover our beloved child 100% totally from the disease but only will minimise the chances of them getting the disease.I highly recommend this jab to those parent who send their children to the nursery.
