8th January – Weekly Prompts midweek Word/Photo Challenge ‘Booster Vaccines‘
“Scared of injections? Be glad you have them for protection. In another corner of the world, there are people suffering due to lack of proper health care.” ~ Diyar Jain.
Over on GC and my site Weekly Prompts, the new Word and Photo Challenge is Booster Vaccines.
My partner GC was mostly out of action during December with a virus that culminated in a type of Whooping cough at Christmas. At this point I will add that if there is a virus anywhere near Gerry, he will likely catch it, and having been vaccinated for most things, he plans to boost his immune system with further vaccines as soon as he is well.
Some people are frightened of needles, others believe themselves to be immune because they are hardly ever ill. The medical profession thinks differently, frowning upon those who refuse vaccines, they tell us that in order to protect others we should first protect ourselves.
Vaccination whys and wherefores explained.
In the United Kingdom, vaccines are offered free to those eligible, and for those not eligible they can be purhased at a very small cost.
If it is suggested to me that I require further vaccines, then I will take up the offer, until then I am unlikely to seek out.
Children are the worse spreaders of disease. So, in view of this, to avoid the spread of flu to the vulnerable, in the U.K. the influenza vaccine is now given to all toddlers and school children.
