Immunization is a form of treatment in which your child is made immune to certain infectious diseases by injecting vaccines into the body. Vaccines motivate the body's own immune system. As soon as the immune system gets stimulated, the white blood cells become and start producing antibodies to fight off the infectious agent. These antibodies are very specific, that is if vaccination is given for measles, the measles virus will not work against chickenpox, and vice-versa. At the time of immunization treatment, your child may experience little bit of pain. Vaccines, like any other medicines, can bring about certain side-effects. While different vaccines have different side-effects, some of the most common and mild vaccine side effects are temporary pain, blemishes in the injected area, redness, mild swelling, short-lived flu, cough and cold etc. These reactions to immunizations are likely to affect 4 out of 10 children receiving vaccination. These symptoms stay on for a short phase of time just after the vaccination is given and can easily be treated by following some simple home treatments. They should typically go away in a day or two, but in case they persist, it's advisable to talk to your general physician. Immunization treatment is generally given free of cost is some of the medical clinics and hospitals. The cost typically ranges from $18 to $88. Children aged between 0-6 years can receive immunization treatment that works towards protecting the child from different kinds of serious ailments for the rest of his life.
