5/21/08 Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccine

Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccine is again at Children's Clinic.
 

Meningococcal is a bacterium that can cause rapid severe and often fatal infections. Every year in the United States, 1,400 to 2,800 people get meningococcal disease. Ten to 14 percent of people with meningococcal disease die, and 11-19 percent of survivors have permanent disabilities (such as mental retardation, hearing loss, and loss of limbs).
 

This bacterium is most notorious for causing meningitis in college dormitories and in high schools.

 

Also, Click Here for information from the CDC about Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine (MCV-4) .

 

 

Until now we were only able to effective immunize college students, but now a new vaccine, known as Menactra™, will allow us to immunize more people.
 

 

 

Please call The Children's Clinic at 610-378-1722 with any questions or to make an appointment.

Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine

There are more then 90 types of pneumococcal bacteria, and the

new pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV 13), with the brand

name of Prevnar, protects against 13 of them. These bacteria types

are responsible for most severe pneumococcal infections

among children. PCV 13 replaces a previous conjugate vaccine

(PCV 7), which protects against 7 pneumococcal types and has

been in use since 2000.

Children ages 2 through 5 years of age as well as children six years

and older with medical conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease

and severe recurrent asthma should receive additional dose

of the new vaccine.

Ask your physician if your child need this booster dose.
