Childhood immunization

  1. 1. * By: 5th year Medicine and surgery students, UST Sana’a, Republic of Yemen
  2. 2. ** Prevention of infectious disease spread worldwide* A key to public health maintenance* Protection for one self and the surrounding in contact* To eradicate diseases (e.g. Smallpox)* Enhancement of the immune system response by “letting it learn something new”
  3. 3. ** Maternal Antibodies against certain disease do not offer a life long immunity to the baby* Many fatal childhood diseases can be prevented through vaccination (e.g. Whooping cough)* Protection of those with weak immune system from disease (e.g. Leukemia)* To maintain healthy, active and productive community members
  4. 4. ** Vaccines are weakened or killed forms of disease causing micro organisms* When the antigen is injected into the body → this allows the immune system to deal with and neutralize the invader.* Next time the same micro organism enters the body, the body has already preformed antibodies to destroy the invader
