Child vaccination should continue amid coronavirus pandemic

As researchers are trying to win the race against the pandemic, we should not forget to carry out our routine health procedures. One such important procedure is the immunization of our youth. Immunization is an essential process as it confers protection against various diseases. While we think pandemic will affect many people globally and cause mortality. Such importance also equally stands with the diseases affecting children. These diseases could be more deadly sometimes and can cause greater fatality. This is the fact vaccination is very to every child who is born on this earth.

As we see, the total confirmed cases from the pandemic are growing on one side. Anecdotal reports claim that people are becoming reluctant to take vaccines for their kids. Public Health Wales also adds that there is a small drop of vaccinee cases since the start of the pandemic. Public Health Wales also adds that the drop in vaccination is probably due to the self-isolation of families and lack of transportation. However, we should see that vaccination is of prime importance as it will save the child and confer herd immunity in all children who get it. This will also help prevent the epidemic rise in the particular surrounding.

The concern

The main concern is that parents do not want their kids to come out during this pandemic, as they do not want to expose their kids and make them susceptible to the disease. We should also see here that the mechanism of COVID-19 is poorly understood in kids and is also causing severe symptoms in some cases. So, they think it’s better to have their children confined in their homes. But the main problem here is it will lead to other complications and trigger another epidemic. We should not forget the last year’s measles outbreak in the United States. The scenario becomes even worse when the pandemic and this new epidemic combine to affect the children. So, such a complication needs to be avoided.

Communication is of prime importance to children, and it should be carried out regardless of the circumstances. Immunity is only the weapon that can confer us from future diseases, and therefore we should give to our generations to come.
