Navigating through multiple avenues of information to understand what’s really good for your child. March 2020 brought significant amounts of change to our lives. Numbers, myths, tips and reports were thrown in our faces every day. So did the information on what’s healthy, what’s not, and what really boosts our immunity. In this post-pandemic era, the credibility of data has increasingly become the need of the hour. While parents and paediatricians all over the world have taken quite a cautious stance on inoculating the young ones, it is crucial to understand how much is too much.

Why Do We Need Vaccines?

Despite tremendous progress, infectious diseases continue to contribute to a significant proportion of child mortality and morbidity in India. According to WHO, 1.5 million deaths could be avoided globally, only if children were vaccinated. More than half of the world’s most vulnerable children still miss out on the essential vaccines that they need to live healthy lives. It is important for parents to be aware of the various vaccinations their child will receive, to immunise them against certain diseases.

Some Common Vaccines For Young Children 

  • Polio
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Meningitis
  • Chicken Pox
  • Tuberculosis
  • Whooping cough
  • Measles
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Rotavirus
  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus

Government Initiatives

All countries in the world have an immunization programme to deliver selected vaccines to the targeted beneficiaries, especially focusing on pregnant  women, infants and children, who are at a high risk of diseases preventable by vaccines. In India, the Universal Immunization Program (UIP) is one of the largest public health programmes targeting nearly 2.67 crore newborns and 2.9 crore pregnant women annually. The Government of India also frequently collaborates with international bodies like the WHO on issues related to vaccinations and viral health.
