Question: Tell me about flu vaccine
The flu vaccine protects children from influenza viruses that can cause serious illness and even death. Young children are especially vulnerable to these viruses.
Children age 2 and younger who come down with the flu are the most likely to have serious complicationssuch as pneumonia.
Most children need only one dose of the influenza vaccine. Kids 6 months through 8 years old who are being vaccinated for the first time, or who have previously received only one dose of vaccine, need two doses at least 28 days apart. It's important for children who need two doses to get the vaccine as soon as it becomes available to have more time for immunity to build up after the second dose is given.
Question: Is it necessary to have flu vaccine during pregnancy.How much it costs exactly??
Answer: Hi Dear
Yes its important to get a flu shot in pregnancy..
All pregnant women need to get vaccinated against the flu and whooping cough during their pregnancies.
Getting vaccinated against the flu is important because pregnant women are at increased risk for serious complications from the flu. The flu can also cause serious problems like early labor and delivery, which can affect your baby’s health.
In addition to protecting you and your unborn baby, getting the flu shot during pregnancy makes it less likely that newborns will get the flu for several months after they’re born — and that lowers their risk of serious complications like pneumonia (lung infection).
You can get the flu shot during any trimester of your pregnancy, it costs within Rs. 500..
Hope this helps!
