VIRUS RASHLETTLE, Australia It’s not just the measles and mumps that are out of control in Australia.
A baby who contracted a viral rash while on holiday with family and friends was given the chance to take part in a vaccination campaign to fight the virus.
The newborn’s parents have been battling for two weeks with the virus and the child’s health has suffered as a result.
She was in hospital with a severe case of viral colitis last Thursday, and was diagnosed with acute viral pheryngitis after contracting the virus while travelling.
Doctors have now decided to give her a second shot to try and combat the virus, but she is still battling with her symptoms.
“We have got two vaccines for the virus,” Dr Andrew Wilson, a pediatric infectious diseases specialist at Royal Children’s Hospital, told news.com,au.
He said the first was given to a child in October this year, when he and his team tested the virus with the second shot just days later.
When the second vaccine was given, the child recovered and was returned to his parents, but was diagnosed again with acute colitis.
Dr Wilson said there was no other way to protect the baby, other than the first vaccine.
In this case, the vaccine was delivered in the form of a gel injected through a tube into her arm.
It was designed to be administered in the same manner as the first shot.
But the gel was too thin and it was not able to deliver enough of the vaccine to fully protect her from the virus until the second dose was given.
Vaccination efforts for infants and young children “The vaccine itself is extremely effective in preventing viral infections.
This is why it’s so important to vaccinate your child with both vaccines at the same time,” Dr Wilson said.
We need to ensure that everyone is vaccinated, whether it’s your family, your partner or someone you know.
As we’ve seen with the coronavirus pandemic in the US, many countries are now looking at the use of vaccines as an early warning system.
Australian health officials said the second vaccination campaign was designed specifically for the infant.
However, Dr Wilson told news,au that if the baby did not recover within two weeks, she would be given a second dose of the gel.
That would allow her to recover and potentially be better protected, but it would not guarantee she would get a full vaccine, he said.
“The main thing is that you’re not giving her a vaccine that’s just to be safe, but to be effective,” Dr Brown said.
“This vaccine is very safe, it’s very effective and it’s not giving you a full dose.”
