Dr Maraschin Vaccinations
Dr Maraschin strongly supports vaccinating, in his own twenty-two years of experience of after hour call outs and hospital admissions, he has seen preventable disease cases diminish dramatically due to the introduction of new vaccines. With constant developments in vaccines, preventable illnesses such as rotavirus, pneumococcal and haemophilus infection rates and even chicken pox have decreased drastically with the help of targeted vaccines.
Dr Maraschin’s philosophy is simple, it is better to prevent than to treat. Vaccinating children and vaccines for babies, is crucial to their health, lifestyle and well-being. Preventable diseases are a risk with no vaccinations and they can have a huge impact on your child’s life – ranging from high costs, parents losing time from work, numerous doctor visits, hospital visits and even possible premature deaths.
It is vital that you adhere to your baby vaccination schedule and child immunisation schedule. Developed vaccines currently protect children against fourteen life-threatening childhood diseases.
As a parent, it is your duty to give your child the best start to life and that includes their health. With conflicting information now available, it’s important to know that vaccinations and immunisations are supported with data and research. Before any vaccinations are administered, our nursing staff will thoroughly explain the vaccine to you, the diseases it protects against, as well as the possible side effects to be aware of. These side effects are generally minor and may include a slight fever and some discomfort. Such side effects are normal, as the body develops an immune response to the illness.
Dr Maraschin suggests using our vaccination schedule below to help your child’s development and health;
