Your child should not only see the pediatrician for an illness.
It is also important to schedule well-child-care exams regularly, beginning in infancy. Also called well-care visits or checkups,
these routine examinations provide the best opportunity for the doctor to observe the progress of your child's physical
and mental growth and development; to counsel and teach parents; to detect problems through screening tests; to provide immunizations,
and to get to know one another. Well-care visits are strongly recommended as part of preventive pediatric care.
Number of immunisations are required to protect the child against the
most serious infections during first few years of life.
The immune system in young children does not work as well as the immune system in older
children and adults, because it is still immature.
Therefore more doses of vaccine are needed.
In the first months of life, a baby is protected from most infectious diseases by
antibodies from his/her his mother,
which are transferred to the baby during pregnancy. When these antibodies wear off,
the baby is at risk of serious infections and
so the first immunisations are given before these antibodies have gone.
Another reason why children get many immunisations is that new vaccines against
serious infections continue to be developed.
The number of injections is reduced by the use of combination vaccines,
where several vaccines are combined into one shot.
