Benefits of combination vaccines
Combination vaccines take two or multiple vaccines that may be individually given and combine them into a single shot. For instance, the child gets just 2-3 shots for safeguarding against 5 illnesses as compared to 5 shots individually. This ensures higher protection with lesser shots, saving pain, time, money and hassles greatly. Children benefit from lesser discomfort and timely protection from a host of illnesses without having to wait for individual vaccines. Parents benefit from fewer doctor’s visits, lower costs and lesser time off from work or other commitments.
Another major benefit is that a combination vaccine undergoes stringent testing before being approved for usage in order to ensure proper safety and effectiveness. There are systems in place for noting any rare outcomes or reactions as well. They are effective for lowering the number of injections while simplifying the entire schedule of immunization. There are huge benefits for parents, children, pregnant women, healthcare providers, administrators and office managers alike.
