Hello Anandhi, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Vaccination is the process of administering vaccines and is generally given by injection into the arm or other limbs to increase the body's resistance to a particular disease. The Indonesian government has a five-basic vaccination program for hepatitis B, polio, BCG (tuberculosis / TB), MR (measles / measles and rubella), and DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis). If you have not received the vaccination when it is still small then you are advised to get the vaccination.
If you have completed your basic vaccinations, there are a number of additional vaccinations that can be given, namely:
Influenza or influenza vaccine (required vasksination annually) Pneumococcal vaccine (PCV) prevents bacterial infections of Streptococcus pneumoniaed and prevents meningitis, pneumonia. HPV vaccine prevents papillomavirus virushuman (HPV). which can cause cervical cancer in women and genital warts in both men and women Varicella vaccine to prevent varicella zoster virus which can cause chickenpox Tetanus and diphtheria vaccines are also recommended to be repeated once every 10 years You should better consult your doctor, so can get a more complete explanation and in accordance with your conditions. Also, be aware that vaccination does not 100% make you immune to the disease, but rather reduces the chance of contracting a disease and if affected usually has milder symptoms.
