A few good shots

Cervical Cancer is caused by the human papilloma virus which is transmitted during sexual intercourse, and is the most common cancer in Indian women. The vaccine Cervarix protects against cervical and anal diseases and is given in 3 doses with an interval of 2 and 6 months. It is a must for all you women, even if they have been celibate, because you get the infection from the male, and you may never know where he’s been.

Chicken Pox (Varicella) is part of the routine vaccination schedule recommended for babies. Since the vaccine is relatively new, adults who have never had it may want to consider it, specially if they work in schools or pediatric wards. The infection tends to be more serious in adult, with high fever and larger blisters.

The vaccine does not completely prevent chicken pox, but vaccinated people who do get the disease get milder symptoms. It is also likely that the (chicken pox) vaccine prevents herpes zoster (shingles) a complication of chicken pox that can produce painful skin sores along the nerves later.

The vaccine is administered in two doses 4 to 8 weeks apart. It is not given to pregnant women, people with a weak immune system or people with cancer of the bone marrow or lymphatic system. Cholera is a very serious gastrointestinal infection causing severe diarrhoea which leads to life threatening and rapid dehydration, caused by a bacteria.

A single dose vaccine can be given if there is an outbreak, although the effect lasts for only a few months. Hepatitis A is a food based infection which affects the liver and is marked by jaundice (yellowing) and pain. Male homosexuals, drug users, people with chronic liver disease or blood clotting disorders should have active immunization —2 doses 6 to 12 months apart. Lasts for 25 years in adults. During an outbreak you can be protected through an injection of serum globulin. Hepatitis B is spread by blood or body fluids. You are at high risk if you are a health care worker, mortuary worker, receive frequent blood transfusions or dialysis, inject drugs, have multiple sex partners.

Immunization is given ma series of 3 or 4 injections. However if you have been vaccinated and exposed to the virus, your antibody levels against Hepatitis B are measured. If the antibody levels are low, you may need another shot. If you have a severe allergic reaction to baker’s yeast, which is used in the production of the vaccine, you cannot receive it.

If you have been exposed to the virus, say with an accidental needle puncture, an injection of hyper immune serum globulin will offer some protection. Influenza or flu, marked by diarrhoea, nausea, fever, and vomiting can lead to pneumonia. So immunization is recommended for those over 50, residents of old age homes, people with chronic heart on lung disease, diabetes, kidney failure, sickle cell disease, a weakened immune system.

The flu shot is usually given in autumn as the winter months are when influenza tends to occur because people spend more time in close contact with one another.

It needs to be repeated every year. Measles, Mumps Rubella (German Measles) are all viral infections. If you were born after 1956, have never had one of these infections and have not received two doses of the vaccine - you should be vaccinated. Specially vulnerable are those beginning college, working in schools and child care centres.

Description: Pregnant women and those who are allergic to eggs or the antibiotic neomycin should not be vaccinated.

Pregnant women and those who are allergic to eggs or the antibiotic neomycin should not be vaccinated.

Pregnant women and those who are allergic to eggs or the antibiotic neomycin should not be vaccinated. You can receive individual vaccines against measles, mumps or rubella. However it makes sense to have a combination vaccine, killing three birds with two shots, so to speak. Anyone who needs protection against one of these infections, usually needs protection against the other two.
