As the nation is witnessing the second wave of Covid-19 and amid the fear of third wave, Motherhood Hospital, one of India’s leading hospital dedicated to women and child brings home vaccination facility for children at doorsteps. This unique service is aimed at easing out the burden of parents having to visit the hospital for immunization of their newborns/infants, thus ensuring seamless and continued immunization care for children.
Considering that the second wave of the pandemic is impacting children, immunizing them, and proving a safety shield against infections is a prudent choice for all parents. The home vaccination facility can be booked by parents in advance and a thoroughly sanitized fully equipped ambulance will be at their doorstep to cater to the immunization of babies. Since, Motherhood Hospital adheres to strict covid safety protocols, it is that the frontline workers are fully vaccinated for Covid and sanitization, disinfectants will be used to ensure zero rate of infection while administering the vaccinations. It is important to complete all the doses of your children prescribed in the vaccination calendar provided at the birth of a baby. Noncompliance to the schedule and postponement of doses will only make your kids vulnerable to vaccination preventable diseases.
India has made significant progress against infectious diseases such as measles, polio, rubella, and smallpox thanks to its routine vaccination programmes. By failing to vaccinate your infant, he or she will be exposed to an increased risk of contracting these vaccine-preventable diseases. The primary vaccinations such as Rotavirus, Polio, Diphtheria, Pertussis, and Tetanus (DPT) and Pneumococcal Conjugate, for example, are scheduled at six, ten, and fourteen weeks of a child's life and must be prioritised by parents. Similarly, the measles vaccine must be administered to the infant without fail after nine months of age.
Mr. Vijayarathna Venkatraman, CEO, Motherhood Hospitals, said, “We at Motherhood Hospital are committed to providing excellent health care delivery by making it accessible. Unfortunately, in the second wave of the pandemic there has been a steep spike of covid infections among children.
