Information On Child Immunizations
Vaccines are resentment in every newborn baby. Therefore they are necessary and should be administered to every child during their growth. Vaccines help babies before the antibodies are strong enough to fight on their own. They help prevent various diseases such as: tuberculosis, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis, yellow fever, meals, and pneumonia, to name just a few of them.
The vaccines are given at the baby's growth intervals, that is, they are given at birth, 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 14 weeks, 6 months, and 9 months. All these ages of the babies age the vaccination is repeated or they are given immunity against a certain disease.

Types of vaccines.
1. Bacillus Guerin: this is the vaccine that protects the child against tuberculosis, it is administered at birth or before two weeks. The vaccine is in the left arm, just below the elbow joint, and is administered under the skin, forming a blister that then forms a mark to prove immunization.
2. Polio vaccine: protects against polio disease that inhibits the growth of the child. It is administered orally in the mouth two drops per dose and there are four doses, that is, at birth, at 6 weeks, at 10 weeks, and 14 weeks.
3. Measles Vaccine – Protects against measles and is given to the upper right arm and is given at nine months.
4. Vitamin A: given to a child at six months and then every 6 months the dose is repeated until the child is 5 years old. Children under 1 year of age receive a dose of 100,000 IU and after one year the dose is increased to 200,000 IU.
All of these vaccines are important for all children, as their immune systems are not yet strong as their antibodies are not fully developed. Therefore, all parents should ensure that their children are vaccinated against all these diseases.
