Vaccination programs are there to provide people with the vaccinations against specific diseases. Their aim is to use immunisation to prevent the spreading of harmful diseases. How this program work is that the NHS provides a scheduled vaccination for vulnerable people like children and elderly. These programs are very important as vulnerable people tend to have a weaker immune system and can easily catch a disease which is why these programs are offered to keep them safe. People who are at risk of exposure to diseases are also offered these vaccinations however they must for them. For children, these vaccines are usually scheduled during the first year of their birth and for elderly people, it’s often done yearly like the flu vaccination. These programs involve lots of injections against dangerous diseases like measles and meningitis which can result in death. In schools, teenage girls are also given human papillomavirus vaccine to protect them from getting cervical cancer. It’s very important that children are vaccinated because if not they can spread the disease to other children who may even be too young to be vaccinated against like transplant recipients. This could lead to other long term problems and can result in death. The disadvantages about these vaccines are that they tend to cause common side effects like like swelling and redness in the area of which the injection was doen which causes pain. Headaces and ftague are also very common however these last for a short period of time. Overall this is a very effective method in preventing the spread of disease as its safely done and is the best defence system used to kill……………..
Not only is this but its mostly free as they are provided by the NHS, howver those who have to pay.
