Old people should also be vaccinated
Due to the decline of the body’s function, the elderly population is likely to be the target of pathogenic microbes, and the damage is far deeper than other age groups.
Therefore, the elderly who value health care always strengthen their self-care in various ways to prevent infection.
However, many elderly people often do not understand that vaccination is also an important substitute for disease prevention.
This method is both feasible, safe and reliable, and can effectively prevent a variety of infectious diseases from being outside the body.
So, should the elderly be vaccinated?
The bronchitis vaccine is also known as the acute vaccine.
Mainly used to prevent upper respiratory tract infections and possible bronchial ulcers, spastic bronchitis, chronic bronchitis and other complications.
These patients are caused by bacterial infections such as Streptococcus hemolyticus, Staphylococcus aureus, and Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and the incidence increases with age.
The clinical use of the elderly with subcutaneous or intramuscular bronchitis vaccine can effectively prevent the occurrence and onset of infectious tracheal diseases.
Influenza vaccines are mainly used to prevent influenza.
The flu virus spreads quickly and widely, and it is hard to prevent.
In the pandemic, the most affected are the elderly and children, and more than 80% of the dead are elderly.
Studies have shown that the most effective measure to prevent influenza is to transplant influenza vaccine.
In particular, elderly people with chronic bronchitis, emphysema, diabetes, liver damage, and heart disease should be especially implanted.
Tetanus vaccine is used to prevent tetanus infection.
According to the data, 3/4 of the elderly over 55 in developing cities are not immune to tetanus.
That is to say, these people are most likely to die if they are infected with tetanus.
The elderly have more pets and are easily scratched and bitten by small animals such as cats and dogs. It is a susceptible group of tetanus.
Therefore, it is necessary for the elderly to receive a tetanus vaccine.
In addition, suitable for elderly transplants are A, hepatitis B vaccine, BCG for tuberculosis prevention and so on.
