What is vaccination

Vaccination( W) is an artificial process of increasing the resistance and resistance of the body to various infectious diseases by introducing into it antigens of microorganismsin the form of a specially prepared material( medicinal vaccine).After the introduction of the antigen into the human body, there is an acceleration and an improvement in the production of their own antibodies for the control of pathogens.

There are two variants of vaccination:

  • vaccine prophylaxis - has a preventive goal, is done according to the set schedule;

  • vaccine therapy - has a therapeutic direction, is carried out if necessary and only with the appointment of a doctor.

How vaccination is carried out

Different vaccines work according to a clearly defined program. Each drug has its own deadlines and methods of application.

The most common form of both injections and injections. It is carried out by injecting a medicinal liquid into a specific muscle:

  • for children under 2 years old - in the middle third of the anterolateral part of the thigh, the introduction occurs at right angles;
  • for children from 2 years old - in the deltoid muscle of the forearm from the side, the introduction occurs horizontally to the skin.
In the gluteus muscle, grafts are not done because the needle of a very small syringe, and instead of intramuscular injection, it turns out to be subcutaneous.

In this way, "live" vaccinations are carried out mainly from infectious diseases. To get the vaccine just under the skin, the specialist should grab it with two fingers, slightly raise and insert a medicine under the skin fold.

Vaccination can be carried out:

  • under the shoulder blade;
  • in the middle of the lateral surface of the shoulder;
  • in the front of the thigh.

This variant of vaccination is carried out through the nose. The drug is prescribed in the form of aerosols, creams, ointments or aqueous solutions. Most often, such vaccinations are prescribed against viral diseases - influenza, rubella, measles. The drug is injected into the nasal passage, protecting the mucous membrane. The shortage of this vaccination is its short duration.

Vaccination occurs by ingesting a medicine. The most common disease from which this method is vaccinated is poliomyelitis. The medicine can be swallowed in its pure form, with a piece of sugar or bread to neutralize the taste of the drug.

Nasal and intradermal

In this method, only the indicated vaccination options are given - Bacillus Calmette-Guerin, BCG - the Calmette-Guerin bacillus. As well as Live dry tularemia and antipoietic.

The vaccine is made over the deltoid muscle of the forearm, or between the elbow and wrist. A thin special needle is inserted in a cut upwards so that the vaccine goes over the skin.

What is a revaccination

Revaccination( RW) is a repeated incubation, that is, a repeated introduction into the body of a medicinal vaccine to increase the body's resistance to diseases and develop immunity. If necessary, under the schedule or in connection with the disease, repeated vaccination is carried out. In a lifetime, a person can make up to 7 revaccinations. In some cases, revaccination is not necessary at all.
