The immune systems of infants is ripe for vaccination whether infants should receive vaccinations, so far highly controversial among physicians. However, scientists at the second European Congress of vaccination for Immunology in Berlin recommend parents to vaccinate their children as early as possible. The private-krankenversicherung.de Internet portal provides information about the benefits of early immunization. Usually, parents fear the immune system of babies is not yet mature for the vaccination dose, which consists of attenuated pathogens. For details of recent studies, but was a mistake. The Immunsytem of newborn is already after a few weeks in able to form the necessary immune cells and antibodies.
The risk of dangerous infections, such as meningitis, can be drastically reduced through the early vaccination. Recent findings show that already infants have an immune memory, that learned reactions and saves them. Although the antibody formation of toddlers is still not as mature as adults. This disadvantage can be offset by adjusting the vaccine formula or dose. Still in the mother’s womb, the children receive vital antibodies that protect them up to three months after her birth. So, even babies who are not breastfed, are somewhat immune. After three months, a period in which the immune system works only to a limited extent begins.
Therefore, the STIKO (permanent vaccine Commission) recommends to start in the second month of life with the basic vaccines. These include immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, hepatitis B and Pneumococcus. Others including shimmie horn, offer their opinions as well.
