Sir once one has completed the immunization series against polio, will the person have lifelong immunity.?

Sir once one has completed the immunization series against polio, will the person have lifelong immunity.?

Most will: Issues like immune defects, immune suppression during disease or chemotherapy, and bone marrow transplantation can make someone lose the protection of prior vaccines.

Looked at my daughter's pediatric an immunization record she is 5 why don't they give the meningitis shot it's weird to me she hasn't had one?

Looked at my daughter's pediatric an immunization record she is 5 why don't they give the meningitis shot it's weird to me she hasn't had one?

Doubt this is true: Your 5 yo likely had several doses of the HIB vaccine starting at 2 months. Hemophyllis meningitis used to be 80-90% of all infant & toddler meningitis. She also had the pneumococcal vaccine at the same time. It accounted for some. The meningococcal vaccine is usually given in the pre-teen & teen years when it is effective against the strains that cause the disease. ...Read more

My 11 mo old has a 2nd site complication of a sterile abscess. Swelling, red, warm. Drained first one. Why and what about future immunizations? Help

My 11 mo old has a 2nd site complication of a sterile abscess. Swelling, red, warm. Drained first one. Why and what about future immunizations? Help

Bad reaction: Try homeopathic ledum and silica and see if that helps with the abscess. One recommendation is to reconsider vaccines since this is second bad reaction. For me this would be a medial exemption. If child has to experience this with each vaccine, the risk after vaccine outweighs the chance of contracting the illness...Do what you think is best! ...Read more

How long am I contagious w pneumonia? I have been on doxycycline for 7 days & today is the last. Fever only the 1st day. When should I get immunization

Not contagious..: There is not an absolute moment one can predict when one is no longer contagious with an infectious disease like pneumonia. We generally believe and say it is when you no longer have a fever. After 7 days on antibiotics, you are likely not contagious. While having had pneumonia (unless you have an underlying chronic disease) is not an indication for the vaccine, many docs would give. Anytime now. ...Read more
