A Mother’s Guide: Frequently Asked Questions about Immunizations

Immunizations for your little one are extremely important for the overall well-being of your child. Ever since its advent, there had been debates whether or not this is considered ethical and necessary. And of course, science and surveys both say that it is indeed essential in the child’s development.

Unfortunately, many people have been spreading misinformation; therefore, preventing new parents to vaccinate their children. This then caused further increase in preventable diseases like a whooping cough.

Below, we will disclose everything a new mother or a new parent needs to know about immunization and vaccination as a treat for Mother’s Day. Here are frequently asked questions about immunizations:

What is the function of vaccines?
Before we exercise, we need to warm up our body to prevent muscle cramps. Same holds true when it comes to our body. Your little one’s young body needs to be prepared in case of bacterial invasions. This is what vaccines are for.

Once the body has been exposed to these vaccines, it will prevent sickness all throughout the child’s life. In the end, he or she will thank you for the invisible shield and sword you have given them to combat unseen enemies.

What happens to the immune system once it has been exposed to vaccines?
The immune system is responsible for making antibodies that combat germs. When the child’s immune system has been exposed to the dead or inactive viruses brought by vaccines, they will immediately construct a formula in order to fight the foreign bodies.

After making the formula, the immune system will store it for future use. When actual and dangerous bacteria invade the body, there will be enough preparation for the white blood cells to combat the said invaders.

Will the vaccine give the child the disease before they become immune?
Technically, the vaccine does not give the child the disease. It only gives them a peek of the disease. When the immune system detects these foreign bodies, it begins sending soldiers and fighters to fend of these diseases.

The risk of acquiring a disease from the immunization is extremely small. We do not give the child live versions of the virus. The last live virus we utilized here in the USA has been banned and it should not trouble you.

There has been a certain drop of cases of preventable diseases in the population. As parents, we only want what our child deserves. Immunization helps your child whenever they come face-to-face with an illness.

For this Mother’s day, we would like to leave you with this information and hopefully clear your suspicion about vaccines. And if you want to vaccinate your child, you do not have to look any further.
