How to avoid getting sick from vaccines: The best way to protect yourself
- by admin
A new report from the World Health Organisation (WHO) has highlighted the importance of ensuring you’re getting vaccinated against the pandemic.
In a recent report, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) found that vaccines for pneumococcal, whooping cough and polio are among the safest on the planet.
The vaccine that’s being used for those three diseases has been approved for use in all 20 countries in the world.
The WHO said it’s been more than 60 years since the last vaccine for polio was introduced.
In the report, published by the World Bank, the WHO said vaccines are an important part of the fight against the diseases that could bring us the most significant health and economic impacts in decades.
However, the vaccine used in those countries isn’t as safe as the ones used in Europe and America, and the WHO recommends people should only get a vaccine if they have no other protection against the disease.
In fact, the report said the only vaccines in the top 10 for effectiveness are the ones in use in Europe.
It also pointed to an alarming trend in the development of vaccines in China, where one vaccine, the live attenuated polio vaccine (LAIV), has been around for decades, despite warnings about the potential side effects of the vaccine.
The report noted that, in China and India, there have been outbreaks of measles and whooping cough in recent years, and also suggested that vaccination with the live-attenuated polio vaccines (LAVs) in China could be one of the key factors that has helped reduce the numbers of measles cases in the country.
It noted that vaccine effectiveness against the viruses was lower in the areas that used them, and that more people could be vaccinated with a LAIV in China if it had been used in other countries.
The WHO said this has been an important factor in slowing the spread of the virus and improving the safety of the vaccines.
It said the vaccine has also been effective against other infections such as diphtheria and tetanus, and has been widely used for the first time against rotavirus, which has been one of three pandemic strains to be isolated in China.
The WTO also recommended that people with compromised immune systems should only use the live vaccines for the purposes for which they were recommended.
