Never Miss Out on a Needed Immunization

immunization

As life forms on earth evolve, so do the diseases.

Medical complications unheard of in a not so distant past have become commonplace these days. Certain diseases develop into more virulent forms after a period of time. This may be because the strains of the viruses that carry or cause them likewise evolve.

Take the case of mosquito-borne diseases. Before, we only used to hear of malaria, West Nile virus, yellow fever or filariasis. Now, there’s dengue, chikungunya and Zika fever.

In recent years, it seems the strain of dengue virus is constantly evolving. Just when our medical experts and scientists have found a way to figure out the characteristics of the virus, another trait shows up, and so on.

But we are thankful that with the advancement in medical science and researches on health, mankind is keeping in step with the evolution of the disease-causing microorganisms.

The Blessing Called Vaccine

We owe so much to the people who had sacrificed a lot to find the needed antidotes for such diseases. Foremost of their discoveries are the vaccines which are administered through immunization. This affords us protection from serious or potentially fatal diseases.

This is what Wikipedia has to say about it: “Immunizations are often widely stated as less risky and an easier way to become immune to a particular disease than risking a milder form of the disease itself. They are important for both adults and children in that they can protect us from the many diseases out there.”

“Immunization not only protects children against deadly diseases, but also helps in developing children’s immune systems.  Through the use of immunizations, some infections and diseases have almost completely been eradicated throughout the United States and the World.” (Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immunization.)

“Active immunization/vaccination has been named one of the “Ten Great Public Health Achievements in the 20th Century,” Wikipedia adds.
