Vaccinations are one of the best, safest ways to protect your child from some of the common infections. If your child doesn’t receive the vaccines, he/she is susceptible to get infections, which can sometimes cause serious health problems.

Vaccines reduce the risk of infections by working with the body’s natural defense system and safely develop immunity to some of the diseases.

We at Kids N Teens Clinics follow the recent Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) vaccination schedule 2016 as found in this link. It is advisable to follow this schedule properly as different vaccines are recommended at a particular age, to protect young children before they are likely to be exposed to these potentially serious diseases.

Why do we need to give more than one dose of vaccine ?

In order to provide complete and sustained immunity to your child, some of these vaccines have to repeated more than once as per the schedule.

What are combination vaccines ?

To reduce the number of injections, some of the vaccines are combined together and they provide the same protection as given individually.

Are there any side effects for these vaccines ?

Like any medications, vaccines can sometimes cause side effects. Most of them are very mild like fever, pain and swelling at the site of injections. We will give some medicines for this and this will improve in 1-2 days.

Serious side effects like allergic reaction are very rare and we will be able to manage them appropriately if needed.

What do I need to do when I come for vaccination ?

Please make sure your child is well without any high-grade fever or cough or vomiting or loose stools. Make sure you bring your previous vaccination record without fail.
