4 vaccines that are necessary for children during the "winter" season

      When entering the winter season, the weather becomes slightly cooler with changes in temperature. This requires our bodies to adjust to the outside temperature, and such weather conditions can make the body more susceptible to illnesses, especially in young children whose bodies may not adapt well. Today, we have 4 vaccines that are necessary for children during the "winter" season

  • COVID-19 vaccine: Initially administered with 2-3 doses, followed by booster shots every 6 months. Currently recommended for children aged 5-18 years.
  • Influenza vaccine: Recommended to be administered once a year before the rainy season.
  • Pneumococcal vaccine (IPD): Especially important for children under 5 years old. There are two types of IPD vaccines, 10-valent and 13-valent, given in 4 doses at ages 2, 4, 6 months, and a booster at 12-15 months.
  • Rotavirus vaccine: A basic vaccine given orally to prevent rotavirus-induced diarrhea, which is common in infants during their first 5 months. It is recommended for young children, typically given in 2-3 doses, and should be completed before the child is 8 months old.

      Supplementary vaccinations help build immunity against various diseases, reducing the risk of illness. This ensures that children have good health, are robust, and ready to learn to their full potential. The decision to administer each type of supplementary vaccine should be made based on individual risk factors, and it's advisable to consult with a specialized physician regarding the necessity and timing of these vaccines.
