"Because the child is no longer alone between his parents, relatives who are aware and vaccinated, and start communicating with other children, there is a very high risk that the child himself brings a kind of illness to kindergarten, school or is infected by others It is recommended that they be vaccinated against those diseases that can be monitored, "says GP Valery Morozov.
He recalls that vaccinations against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, measles, rubella and mumps for children are mandatory, as are immunizations of pneumococcal and meningococcal infections. In addition, a small vaccine against flu and chicken pox is recommended that can easily be infected with other children.
"Vaccination is always better than disease, but parents have the right to choose", – believes V. Morozov.
The doctor notes that in recent years, in Europe, cases of acute vaccine incontinence in children have increased, cases of measles have also increased. In Lithuania, the outbreak of measles is not registered, the problem is more confused, according to a doctor, who is often confused with the disease of the upper respiratory tract.
The doctor recommends that the whole family and people who go home regularly, if possible, are vaccinated against the same diseases, reducing the risk for children to become infected.
