Vaccines administered in drops of milk in Israel have significantly reduced infant and child morbidity and mortality.

According to the guidelines of the Israeli Ministry of Health, the article before you will outline the different vaccines that are administered as part of a drop of milk.

Pentavalent vaccines

In addition, there is a system that is based on the combination of the broad type of learners rather than their level (e.g., dyslexics, scholars, etc.).

Vaccines must be administered four times during the first year of a patient's life. A first date must be given at the age of two months, followed by dates at four months, six months, and one year of age.

In the second grade, children receive a combined vaccine that contains vaccines against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, and whooping cough, and in the eighth grade, a second combined vaccine against whooping cough, tetanus, and diphtheria is administered.

Quadruple vaccination

A quadruple shot is also available in a combined component that provides protection against four childhood diseases: chicken pox, rubella, mumps, and measles. The vaccine is administered only on two occasions: on the first occasion at the age of one year and on the second occasion during the first grade.

Pneumococcal vaccine

A vaccine that provides protection against the 13 most common strains of pneumococcal bacteria that harm children. There are three doses of the vaccine administered, the first at the age of two months, the second at the age of four months, and the third at the age of one year.

Vaccination against hepatitis caused by infection with various types of the hepatitis virus

Today, babies in Israel receive two types of vaccines separately against two deadly viruses. First, there is hepatitis A, and second, there is hepatitis B.

Vaccinations against hepatitis A are administered for the first time at the age of one and a half and the second time at the age of two years, whereas vaccinations against hepatitis B are administered in three doses: the first dose is given immediately following birth and is actually administered in the hospital where the baby was born, the second dose is administered at one month of age, and the third dose is administered at six months of age.

Vaccination against Rotavirus

Rotavirus vaccines are relatively new in Israel, having been administered in drops of milk only since 2011. In addition, this vaccine is unique in that it is administered through oral drops rather than injection. Vaccines are generally administered in three doses, the first at two months of age, the second at four months of age, and the third at six months of age.

Vaccine side effects

All of the vaccines mentioned above may cause different side effects. It should be noted, however, that the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh its side effects.

Typically, these side effects are transient and are not particularly serious, such as swelling, redness or pain at the injection site, increased body temperature, diarrhea or loss of appetite. However, in exceptional circumstances, more serious side effects may occur, requiring urgent medical attention.

A serious reaction to vaccines is anaphylactic shock, which is characterized by breathing difficulties and a drop in blood pressure. In order to avoid unusual side effects that may result from hypersensitivity to the components of the vaccine, patients should be closely monitored during the first few days following the administration of the vaccine.

Important Note

The nurse should be informed of any unusual circumstances before administering the vaccine. Children or babies suffering from fevers over thirty-eight degrees are prohibited from receiving vaccinations, and certain vaccines must not be administered to children with specific diseases.

As an example, the rotavirus vaccine should not be administered to children suffering from intestinal perforation or who have a weak immune system.
