Childrens Health Vaccines Up To Date
My daughter is 16 months and healthy. Are there any health risks for her to travel 4 times a year from italy to the united states ? Vaccines are up to date and she meets all developmental milestones.
No: There are risks of common viral respiratory infections from other passengers in a tightly enclosed airline cabin. Otherwise, there are no significant risks.See 1 more doctor answer
None.: There are several meningitis vaccines given, mostly to children. They are all safe and necessary vaccines and can prevent unnecessary illness and death. The meningococcal vaccine is mostly given to children at age 10-11 with a booster at 16; pneumococcal and hemophilus influenza B are both given as a series with the regular under 2 year old vaccines. They also may be given to adults at risk.
Wrong abbreviation: The correct DTP abbreviations in the U.S. Include: dtp, dtap, dt, dt, and tdap. It would only be guessing, if one were to decide what "dp" meant.
Not yet: Unfortunately not yet. It's a great idea for women to be vaccinated however, especially if you have yet to meet your "forever partner ". You might try your county health department. Frequently they have the best prices on the vaccines.See 1 more doctor answer
What can possibly happen to my daughter's health if I do not give the other two doses of the vaccine?
Which vaccine?: In general, it is important to complete the entire series of vaccinations for a particular disease. Not finishing can leave you still susceptible to the disease you are trying to prevent. Unless your daughter had some major side effect, i would recommend finishing. While many diseases in the us are rare, your child may travel as an adult or meet someone who carries the disease.
What health tips should I follow when traveling internationally? Diet? Sleep? Supplements? Vaccinations?

Hepatitis B: Hepatitis b can lead to liver cancer and death. If one gets infected with this virus as an adult there is more of a likelihood of a chronic active infection. But if you have no risks: not sexually active, no working in healthcare where you may be exposed to blood, not around any shared needles in a drug use environment then your risks are relatively low.See 1 more doctor answer
No: I have given hundreds of Gardasil vaccines to my patients, as well as to my own daughters. I have never seen, in any of my patients, or my own children, any health problems after vaccination. Yes, the shot may hurt, and some patients pass out after the shot, but this is an acute issue, not a long term one.
Is it safe to get vaccines at a pharmacy like cvs for example? I'm 26 male good health. Know i'm due for a tetanus but what else would be good?
My opinion: The second part of your question is exactly the problem with pharmacies giving vaccines.Most of the time you don't know everything you need, and they certainly don't.They have no way to verify what you have had in the past and when, and thus what you are due for. It takes away that consultation from your primary physician who can help you decide what is right for you. While safe, likely incomplete.

It doesn't: In the pre vaccine era, the wild mumps eventually infected the majority of both men and women in their childhood and this had no significant effect on reproduction.The weaker strain in the vaccine also has no effect on later fertility. Un-vaccinated adult males who have developed an inflammation of their testis, with the wild virus, have a small but possible reduction in fertility.
Does a minor need parental consent to get medical care related to sexual health? For example getting a vaccine or getting medication.
Varies: Many states like mine,Texas, consider parental consent a barrier to a treatment for sexually transmitted disease, pregnancy, birth control and similar needs.These are exempted specifically from parental consent rules. However, when a minor uses their parents insurance to access any of these services parental notification will eventually occur as insurance EOB documents reach them.See 2 more doctor answers
I'm feeling sick and tired a day after my vaccine. Is this normal? I also have health anxiety and don't sleep well as a result.
Normal reaction: Hi, this is a common reaction to many vaccines, and is the result of a successful vaccination. It means you have a healthy immune system, which is responding to the vaccine by making you feel as if you have a mild viral infection. Rest and fluids (not alcohol) and a light diet are all that is usually needed. Unless the reaction is very painful avoid taking meds as this can reduce the effectiveness
I'm on steroids for chronic health conditions. If my toddler gets a live vaccine such as chick pox, am i risk of some kind when i get near him?
Possibly: Dependent upon your dose and length of time you have been on the steroids, you indeed could be at risk . The live vaccines are varicella and mmr. Talk to the doc who prescribed your steroids to see if your individual dosing puts you at risk. If you are going to be off the steroids in the next month or two, you could consider delay for your toddler, but if long term use may need a different plan.
