Influenza Vaccine

Yesterday we had an appointment with Xye’s pediatrician for an influenza immunization.

This little guy cried for a while after the shot but was brave enough to restrain the pain after few minutes. lol..

What is Influenza Vaccination?

Influenza or commonly known as flu is a virus causing disease that infects the respiratory system. Flu is contagious and can be spread by sneezing and coughing. The symptoms are just like a cold but much heavier. Cold symptoms are runny nose, cough, headaches and core throat while flu is usually accompanied by fever of 38.2 deg Celsius or higher, pains, chills, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and even diarrhea.

The type or kind of virus that causes the disease may change thus a yearly vaccination is needed. The first vaccine usually given to babies from age 6 to 8 months, and the second dose will be given a month after. The succeeding shots or doses will then be given yearly.

Xye is six months and 3 weeks old thus he had an influenza immunization yesterday at his pediatrician’s clinic.

Xye's Physical Development Update:

Weight: 7.68kgs from 7.18kg last month

Height: 2cm taller from last month 65 to 67cm.
