Pneumococcal Vaccination

Skrg ni mcm2 jenis penyakit yg ada kt dunia ni..
So mama dh decide nk bg this vaccination to qari coz prevent is better than cure..
Utk qari disebabkan dia dh sethn so dia perlu amik 2 x je injection instead of 4 injections for infants...
Untung jgk la klu amik lmbt tp infants lbh terdedah kpd penyakit2 ni...
so its up to parent kt luar sana nk bg injection ni bila.klu yg suka bwk ank berjln2 kt luar better dinasihatkn amik lebih awal la..
kt bawah ni mama ada copy paste skit psl Pneumococcal Vaccination nih...


According to the World Health Organization's current estimates, one child dies of a pneumococcal disease
every minute. Pneumococcal infection can cause ear infection, sinus infection, pneumonia, blood infection
(bacteremia), and meningitis (infection of the covering of the brain). About 1 out of every 20 people who
get pneumococcal pneumonia dies from it, as do about 2 out of every 10 who get bacteremia, and 3 out of 10
who get meningitis. Pneumococcal disease kills more people in the United States every year than all other
vaccine-preventable diseases combined.

What is pneumococcal disease?
Pneumococcal disease is a severe bacterial infection caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, also called
pneumococcus. It may cause pneumonia, meningitis or a blood stream infection (bacteremia).


Who gets pneumococcal disease?
Although anyone can get pneumococcal disease, it occurs more frequently in infants, young children, African
Americans, some Native American populations, the elderly or in people with serious underlying medical
conditions such as chronic lung, heart or kidney disease. Others at risk include alcoholics, diabetics,
people with weakened immune systems and those without a spleen.


How is the disease transmitted?
The pneumococcus is spread by airborne or direct exposure to respiratory droplets from a person who is
infected or carrying the bacteria?


When does pneumococcal disease occur?
Infections occur most often during the winter and early spring when respiratory illnesses are more common.


How soon after exposure do symptoms occur?
The incubation period may vary but it is generally one to three days.


What are the symptoms?
Symptoms generally include an abrupt onset of fever and shaking or chills. Other common symptoms may include
headache, cough, chest pain, disorientation, shortness of breath, weakness and occasionally a stiff neck.


How is pneumococcal disease diagnosed?
Doctors are able to diagnose pneumococcal disease based on the type of symptoms exhibited by the patient and
specific laboratory cultures of sputum, blood or spinal fluid.


How is it treated?
Prompt treatment with antibiotics, such as penicillin or cephalosporin, is usually effective. However,
penicillin-resistant strains of pneumococcus are increasingly being reported throughout the United States.


Is there a vaccine to prevent infection?
Yes. There are two types of vaccines currently in use, one of which is approved for children less than two
years of age. Both vaccines are safe and reduce disease occurrence. Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine is
recommended for all children less than 24 months old and for children between 24 and 59 months old who are at
high risk of disease. Older children and adults with risk factors may receive the pneumococcal polysaccaride
vaccine. Patients in high-risk categories should ask their health care provider or local health department
about pneumococcal vaccine.

Mama amik vaccine ni dkt kjmc..

Ada kisah menarik plk terjd time menunggu giliran kt kjmc tuh..
We all (mama, abah & qari) smpi kt kjmc ni dlm kul 7.09pm...
si qari cam biasala klu dtg sini sure x duk diam semua permainan pn dia nk try...
tp disebabkn we all smpi awal, so x ramai la bdk2 yg ada...terpaksa la qari ni main sorg2...
tgh duk menunggu tu ttiba si qari ni buang air besar plk...dh ler mama ngn abah pulak lupa nk bwk diapers dia...
apa lg cuak la mama ngn abah.x kn nk jmpa dr ngn si qari ni dlm keadaan yg cantu..dh la ditambah ngn bau2an
yg x le nk diterima hidung..hehhee..ttiba smpi plk turn kitorg utk masuk...so we all pn masuk la...
dh masuk tu mama tnya dr syed "dr. nk cucuk kt punggung ke? anak sy ni ter*** plk...mcamana ye dr.?"
dr. tu suruh we all tkr dulu n mintk nurse kt situ bg sample diapers...malu gak mama time tu..hehehe
ye la slalu mama bwk dia x buang air plk...time mama lupa bwk bule plk dia melepas ...heheheh...qari..qari...

lps tkr diapers dr syed bg la injection tu...mama tgk jarum dia cam tbl skit berbanding ngn suntikan umur

dr pn ada ckp this injection pn sakit skit berbanding ijnection lain...
bila dr cucuk je si qari ni pn apa lg menjerit ler...
tp kjp je..lepas mama peluk2 cium n pujuk dia dia dh ok dh...
kuar dr blk dr. tu dia trs smbg main mcm x de pape yg berlaku pn..(mcm x sakit jer....hehheeh)
