Aseptic Meningitits

Prevention could include:

  • About one month after your baby is born he or she is given the first of three hepatitis B (hepB) vaccinations. Then comes the diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine; haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine (Hib); pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV); inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV); measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and so on..

  • Even if you had vaccinations as a child, that doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't follow up as a young adult. Certain vaccinations are required for college.
  • Vaccinations are a way to "teach" the immune system how to recognize and eliminate disease causing organisms. Vaccines can prevent potential deadly illnesses.
  • The Global Immunization Vision and Strategy (GIVS) plan is designed to control morbidity and mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases.
  • Apart from the obvious health benefits, studies have explored the additional societal benefits of vaccinations in developing countries.
  • Certain people should either not get vaccinated or wait before receiving a vaccine. Find out who should avoid which vaccines.
  • Despite the fact that vaccines can prevent the spread of highly infectious (and lethal) diseases, the number of people refusing vaccines has increased.
  • Annual flu shots are recommended for all ages, starting at 6 months old. This has been a shift in recent years encouraging all age groups to receive the shot.
