It is important to have children vaccinated according to the provincial immunisaton schedule. The protection that is afforded by vaccines administered at a young age far exceeds the slight inconvience felt during the injection. This will protect your precious little ones against serious diseases, which can have a major impact on their health.
The most important vaccines are:
- Pertussis (whooping cough);
- Rotavirus gastroenteritis;
- Flu (influenza);
- Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B;
- Meningoccoccal infection;
- Pneumococcal infection;
- Serious Haemophilis influenza type b (Hib) infection;
- Infections caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV);
- Chicken pox.

We often associate vaccinations with children. But, don't be mistaken, vaccinations concern adults as well as children! Several vaccines received during childhood or youth lose their effectiveness over time. Because of this, "booster" vaccinations must then be administered to assure continuous adequate protection.
In addition, many vaccines were not provided for in the earlier provincial immunisation schedule or have only been available on the market during our adult life. Therefore, it may be that, depending on your age, condition or overall health, you require these new vaccines. In fact, some could prove to be very beneficial, indeed even essential to keep you immune to certain infections.
To learn more about the new vaccines now available, speak to a Brunet nursing staff person or your Brunet-affiliated pharmacy owner.
Vaccination means prevention. In fact, vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and those around you from serious infectious diseases. Vaccination has allowed certain diseases to be eradicated that formerly wreaked havoc within the population. Nevertheless, the secret to such success depends upon the participation of the entire community.
So why cure when you can prevent? Make an appointment and get vaccinated at a participating Brunet-affiliated pharmacy at a time that suits you.
