6 in 1 Vaccination Awareness

Vaccination Awareness is an education initiative by GSK.

 

 Apart for hygiene and proper nutrition, vaccination plays an important role for your child’s health and wellbeing.

You could also get your baby a combination vaccination which provides protection to fight against multiple diseases including serious Polio, with fewer pricks, lesser discomfort and the same protection as with individual vaccination.

It gives protection for 6 diseases including; Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Hib, Hepatitis B and Polio - which are vaccine preventable. Combination Vaccination offers timely protection against these with less delays and better vaccination coverage.

Pertussis is a contagious respiratory disease that could be serious in infants. It is also called whooping cough. Diphtheria is a bacterial infection that could block airways and could lead to difficulty in breathing. Besides Diphtheria and Pertussis, Tetanus, Hib, Hepatitis B and Polio are other diseases that Combination vaccination provides protection from. While Polio could lead to paralysis and disability, Hepatitis B is a viral infection affecting the liver. Tetanus could lead to muscle spasms and Hib could cause infections like Pneumonia or brain fever.

So, when your baby is 0-2 months old, consult your Pediatrician to know more about protection from 6 diseases with combination vaccination.
