A bacterium that, on its own, causes more death than any vaccine preventable disease, and twice as much as AIDS. Vaccination of the little ones also protects the adults. The question is: Who should spend it?
Rye is known as a catarrhalThe bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae, or pneumococcus in short, has been known since the late 1800s. We know more than 90 types of bacterial surface polysaccharides, but only a few cause severe or fatal disease. Pneumococcal disease is very common in healthy people in the nostrils and pharynx. Specifically, infants younger than two years of age carry a large proportion of their nasopharynx, and older age will disappear. Very - mainly, kindergarteners and schoolchildren are more and more portable. Portability can be considered as a normal condition. This means that while potentially infectious bacteria can be found in the body, the carrier person does not become ill, but it can be harmful to the environment. Pneumococcal bacterium spreads from person to person by drip infection, cough, holy, and indirect transmission of the saliva. The bacterium is rapidly killed by the human body and therefore the infection cannot be carried by food, drink or objects.
The disease is always preceded by the colonization of the bacterium in the pharynx. Severe pneumococcal diseases develop in 50-60 percent of such carriers. Antibiotic treatment does not eliminate the carrier. It is not possible to know exactly why the bacterium develops into a serious illness due to its innocent presence. Passive smoking or contaminated air is a favorable external factor and is also at greater risk if the immune system is weakened for some reason. This is why they have to be cautious about infecting the elderly, older than 65 years of age, with small children, and can also cause pneumonia and mortality.
A mass murderer in developing countriesIn developing countries, pneumococcal infection is one of the leading causes of death in children younger than two years of age and causes about 1.2 million deaths per year, accounting for 9% of all deaths. - we found out these shocking data from Dr. Enik Ъjhelyi, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Children's Intensive Care at St. Louis Hospital, in a press release that is now available in Hungary.
He has thousands of children a year in Hungary, and fortunately only about fifty receive life-threatening pneumococcal infections. However, their fate may be an intimate sign. Some domestic pediatricians may be surprised to see parents being approached by an emergency doctor, as luckily most have had nothing to do with a serious case. However, caution is warranted.
What can one expect to be aggressive with such a common mole?
Carrying out infectionIn some cases, the bacterium may also be transmitted to nearby organs from the nasopharynx. By penetrating the middle and nasal passages, it causes inflammation of the midbrain and the face, and can cause pneumonia in the lungs.
In other cases, by rupture of the mucosa of the nasopharynx, pneumococcal can also enter the bloodstream, where it can cause serious, potentially life-threatening, invasive diseases. Luckily, it does not produce as many symptoms as the high fever, but a blood test can always detect infections. Unfortunately, you can have more severe conditions: it can cause inflammation of the stomach, meningitis, cerebral inflammation, hemorrhage and severe pneumonia. With this severe condition, small patients are going to intensive care, and they will immediately start antibiotic treatment.
Dr. Zsufia Mysner, director general of the National Institute of Child Health, said that almost one in four young children who received pneumococcal meningitis died from the infection. And those who are over-sick often have about 15% permanent disorder, and have to live with their hearing loss for the rest of their lives, which can be aggravated or have some kind of neurological disorder.
The little ones are vaccinated, the big ones are (also) protectedThe prevalence of pneumococcal infections, the severity of the events, and the resistance of the vaccine to antibiotic treatment all make prevention necessary, with only one effective means of prevention. OEP pays for the older vaccine against pneumococcal infection, this is yours. however, polysaccharide-type vaccines are not good for young children.
You are under the age of 5 years. a conjugate type vaccine is used to bind a white protein from another bacterial bulb to the circulating bacterium, in this case the pneumococcal polysaccharide. The polysaccharide small children mйg йretlen immunrendszerйben not kйpes immunvбlaszt kivбltani but fehйrjйvel kombinбlva the бrukapcsolбs elvйn you have already igen.Azokban the orszбgokban where developed for young children vйdхoltбst szйleskцrыen alkalmazzбk, csцkkent 94% in the sъlyos йs йletveszйlyes pneumococcal fertхzйsek elхfordulбsa less tovбbbб jуval a child had to be treated for moderate inflammation.

And among our neighbors, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria are among the supported vaccines. Hopefully we will be able to classify our country here soon.
The introduction of vaccination in the US revealed that the number of pneumococcal illnesses not only decreased in vaccinated children, but also in elderly, unvaccinated elderly people, by about 64 percent. This is because, even though antibiotic treatment does not affect the condition of the carrier, the vaccine reduces the number of carrier children who may be infected by the elderly.
He's drab our kidsAccording to Dr. Ferenc Kбdár, a board member of the Association of Home Pediatricians, pediatricians should always recommend vaccination to parents; of course, the health of the children was at stake. It also raises the question that if a serious infection persists, a small child may even have to be lost, whether the doctor or parent could have forgiven himself if he had not had it. And this is valid even if we now know that allergic diseases, besides environmental pollution, are spreading in excess of purity, relatively high levels of immunization, and all these.
Although it is undoubtedly a total investment to pay for a health insurance, the parents have to pay for it, so it does not matter how much they get. The first vaccination, given as early as two months of age, is followed by two further doses. The three vaccinations cost a total of 48 thousand HUF, and one year later the children have to be vaccinated for further reminders. However, at first glance, a huge amount compared to a safety baby, a standard stroller, or a single refueling price does not mean that you shouldn't be spared it.
