Pneumococcal & Rotavirus

Little Izzah was given her second jab of Pneumococcal vaccine on 23rd October 2008. And, also her first Rotavirus vaccine.

Rotavirus is an oral vaccine, so Dr Ling gave that first. Izzah must have enjoyed the taste so much because she kept on licking her lip even after the dose is all consumed.

Not even a single drop is wasted. She swallowed them all. Good baby!

You see, Rotavirus vaccine is RM180 each. So, not spitting means not wasting your hard-earned money!

Then, Dr Ling injected the Pneumococcal vaccine on her thigh. As usual, she cried out loud.

She must have hated her paed so much.. ha..ha..ha

Pneumococcal and Rotavirus vaccine are not included in the government compulsary vaccination program. Perhaps because they are so expensive.

But, I believe both are also as much important as other vaccines like BcG, HepB, Polio, Dtp etc.

Money is valuable, but your baby’s well being is PRICELESS.

If your baby is not yet protected, now is the best time to do. Don’t delay because you don’t know what will happen in the future.

I have written about Pneumococcal here.

How about Rotavirus?

Rotavirus is a virus that infects the bowels. It is the most common cause of SEVERE diarrhea among infants and children throughout the world and causes the death of about 600,000 children worldwide annually.

Symptoms of the disease include fever, vomiting and watery diarrhea which can cause severe dehydration. Severe dehydration can lead to death so hospitalization for intravenous fluid (drip) is needed.

Rotavirus infection is highly contagious. Almost all children will become infected with rotavirus by their third birthday!

So, we decided to give baby Izzah the protection against Rotavirus too (the recommended age is 2, 4 and 6 months old).

The Rotavirus vaccine is known as Rotarix.

There are two vaccines available. One is Rotarix (RM180 each) and given two doses (once in a one month gap). Another is RotaTeq which is cheaper (RM100 each) and given three doses (once in a one month gap).

Dear little princess…

Mama and babah have given you almost all the protection you need against those nasty bacterias and viruses. So, be good ok. Else, mama will claim back all the expenses incurred when you start working (mama has compiled all the bills ya…)
