Vaccination

Most people are confident that only children need vaccination, and that the vaccination is not done to adults. In fact, the adults may and need to be vaccinated against multiple diseases with not less efficiency than for kids.

VACCINES FOR ADULTS IN OXFORD MEDICAL

The doctors of the Family Medicine and Pediatrics Department do vaccination for both adults and children. In the clinic, the adult patients can have vaccination against the following diseases:

  • influenza (most in-demand seasonal vaccine);
  • hepatitis B;
  • whooping cough;
  • diphtheria;
  • tetanus;
  • poliomyelitis;
  • papillomavirus (HPV).

Each of these diseases can be prevented if doing the timely vaccination.

WHY DO ADULTS NEED VACCINATION?

During the regular day, each modern man contacts with many people, the part of which can be the carrier of infections, posing threat to our health. The more people we contact, the higher the risk of contracting infection is.

That is why it is recommended having vaccination for the people, whose work is connected with communication with many people: medical workers, bank employees, supermarkets, drugstores, teachers, coaches and nursery teachers in kindergartens.

Some vaccination is done urgently. For example, if you have wounds, you are recommended having vaccination against the tetanus – dangerous disease, the morbidity from which exceeds 50% even when using the modern methods of therapy. The vaccination against the lockjaw gives a temporary immunity, which is active just for several years; that is why the people with high risk of traumatism need to have vaccination regularly.

The vaccination against papillomavirus protects against the most dangerous oncogenic strains of HPV, contributing to the development of  cervical dysplasia (precancerous condition) and cervical cancer.

The immunity against many infections is just temporary, the periodic vaccination allows the organism to recurrently form the immunity against the dangerous infectious agents. For each infection, the life of vaccine differs, the influenza virus has the shortest one (due to the high propensity for mutation and constant appearance of new strains) – the vaccination should be done annually.
