How to get a cheaper pcv (pneumococcal conjugate vaccine)for my 4 month old baby as first dose.?

Vaccines for childre: For those not covered by any insurance at all, on medicaid or chips, you can get vaccines at no cost at many providers or the health department. There is often an administration fee for the uninsured. Since the raw cost of the vaccine from the producer approaches $150 per dose, you are not going to find anyone willing to give it away. ...Read more

100.4: 100.4 F or 38 C is generally considered the threshold for the fever, regardless of age. Low-grade temperature can be a response to a vaccine, and some vaccines, such as the standard DTaP shot, can sometimes produce a high-grade fever. ...Read more

Usually, a fever related to vaccines will last up to 3-4 days and not be terribly severe.

Delaying 12 month vaccinations? How late after the one year birthday can an infant's 12 month vaccinations be delayed?

Delaying 12 month vaccinations? How late after the one year birthday can an infant's 12 month vaccinations be delayed?

Why do So?: Better late than never. Delaying vaccines have been demonstrated to increase the risk of obtaining the disease while " waiting" in addition, studies have shown that when delayed, the vaccins are often never given at all. Unless there is a specific medical reason to wait, it only has a downside with no upside whatsoever. ...Read more

My 4 month old just got his 2nd rotavirus vaccine. First time diahrea for a week. This time he already has bad gas with gas pains. Is this common?

My 4 month old just got his 2nd rotavirus vaccine. First time diahrea for a week. This time he already has bad gas with gas pains. Is this common?

Not common: I am assuming you are asking if these are common side effects of immunization for rotavirus. For side effects, I'm thinking these are likely (common) side effects. Rotavirus affects the GI tract, so it is assumed any "priming of the immune system" by a vaccine may have a GI focus for side effects. From a population standpoint, it is uncommon (but not rare) to get side effects like this ...Read more

Can babies die after getting their vaccines?

Can babies die after getting their vaccines?

Interesting question: The number of deaths among unimmunized infants from pertussis has climbed from zero in the 1990's, to more than 30 last year. The deaths from millions of doses of the vaccine in the same period= zero. The pattern is similar for other vaccines, with less fatalities from those diseases. The risk benefit ratio shows vaccines to be the better choice, however, you will never convince some of that fact. ...Read more

Why is it suddenly dangerous to give an infant vaccines?

Its not: Vaccines have been so successful that your grandparents were the last generation suffering from many of the diseases they prevent. Since they survived & never faced the epidemics with their own kids, they are easy prey for the playboy playmates& fraud based research that call them into question. Vaccine haters have caused preventable death rates to climb in the us, skip & your kid may be next. ...Read more

Why would the MMR vaccine be given to babies and not adults?

Why would the MMR vaccine be given to babies and not adults?

But it is!!: Mmr if given in infancy and childhood will generally give a person lifelong immunity. In some cases, it does not and the vaccine can be repeated in adulthood. The original MMR was given once around 12-15 months for about 23 years when they realized a few were not protected by college age. After about 1990 we began giving a booster & that seemed to fix the issue. ...Read more

What can the vaccines given to babies prevent?

What can the vaccines given to babies prevent?

Injury or death: The primary answer is that vaccines build up babies immunity to diseases. The list of available vaccines has more than tripled over the last 30 years as research has provided us with better vaccines against diseases. Many graveyards of the 1700-1950's are littered with little headstones of kids we lost. Unvaccinated kids still die in the us every year as a sad commentary about parents choices. ...Read more

Can the dpat vaccine be given as 3 separate injections for babies?

Can the dpat vaccine be given as 3 separate injections for babies?

Why ever?: There has been years of research done to combine these into one safe and effective vaccine and cut the discomfort involved with separate vaccines. They are not available separately. I view those who try to string out the shots based on the musings of a playboy bunny or well meaning docs as misguided. No baby should undergo extra pain over a myth. ...Read more

Can you please tell me why it'ssuddenly dangerous to give an infant cold medicine, yet safe to pump them full of vaccines?

Can you please tell me why it'ssuddenly dangerous to give an infant cold medicine, yet safe to pump them full of vaccines?

Very different: Vaccines allow the immune system to build up a natural protection against certain infections to avoid getting sick in the first place. Benefits:great. Risks: small. Because of routine vaccinations, it is uncommon to hear of a child dying of childhood illnesses; a few generations back, it was all too common. Cold medicines only treat symptoms and can have side effects. Risks can outweigh benefits. ...Read more
