A doctor dispels common basic misconceptions about vaccination

Dr. Ekaterina Morozova, a pediatrician, dispelled the main common myths about vaccination.

The doctor says: “Vaccination is the safest and most effective way to prevent infection. Because vaccination uses the body's natural defense mechanisms to create resistance to diseases and strengthen the immune system by producing specific antibodies, that is, vaccines contain only dead or weak forms of viruses or bacteria, so they do not cause the disease and its complications later. Most vaccines are given by injection, and there are also oral sprays and nasal sprays.”

According to her, there are still many myths and myths associated with vaccination.

Myth 1 - Vaccination is not necessary, it is enough to follow the rules of hygiene and sanitation.

“But many infections are transmitted regardless of hygiene,” she says. “So, without vaccination, a person can become susceptible to many diseases.”

Myth 2 - We live in a safe world, where almost all infections have been eliminated, so there is no need for vaccination.

She says: “Thanks to vaccination, many infectious diseases are now rare, but without vaccination, there is a risk of contracting the disease at the first contact with bacteria. Moreover, in the modern world, we are all forced to be in places with large crowds of people and travel, "This increases the risk of infection."

Myth 3 - Vaccines are dangerous

She says: “Every vaccine is tested to ensure its safety and effectiveness before it is used. After vaccination, as with any medication, side effects can occur (such as pain at the injection site or a slight fever), but they usually do not last long. No serious reactions occur.” Except in rare cases."

Myth 4 - It is better to get sick in order for immunity to form.

“As a rule, a person’s immunity can in some cases be stronger than usual,” she says. “However, when the disease spreads, infection can occur in different ways and cause complications, including disability and death, but this is impossible with vaccination.”
