Nafiset Tkhakushinova: Myths about ‘Horrible Vaccines’ May Lead to Lethal Cases

Nafiset Tkhakushinova: Myths about ‘Horrible Vaccines’ May Lead to Lethal Cases

Krasnodar, 13 June – Yug Times. Our today’s interviewee is Nafiset Tkhakushinova, Chief Children’s Supernumerary Infectiologist of the regional Health Care Ministry.

Q.: Are you vaccinated against all diseases?

A.: Both I and my family are vaccinated against the diseases that have a vaccine available for protection. For instance, all medical personnel must get vaccinated for flu in autumn. If not, they wouldn’t be admitted for work.

Q.: However, opponents of vaccination claim that vaccines may provoke problems. For instance, a person that was vaccinated for flu would catch flu…

A.: An introduction of the vaccine may not provoke falling ill. The vaccine stimulates the immune system to fight the infection. The ingredients of contemporary vaccines change every year according to the viral mutations, so that they should as much as possible coincide with the circulating strains - and they protect from three types of flu viruses at once in 90% of cases. I have always been sorry for the parents that took on trust the rumours of the ‘horrible vaccines’ and decided that their kid wouldn’t fall ill without being vaccinated. Quite contrary - it’s the unvaccinated children that are the patients of isolation wards during the epidemics of acute respiratory diseases. They would most often go in to resuscitation units with most difficult complications, whose consequences may last for their entire lives.

Q.: As far as o know, it’s due the mass vaccination that there have been no outbreaks of poliomyelitis in the Krasnodar region over the past 20 years.

A.: Yes, but some tourists may be carrying this dangerous virus. A kid may also get infected if he or she ate something while being abroad. We know of such cases. At the beginning of this century, the patients infected with the imported virus of poliomyelitis were registered in 25 countries that had been free of the disease before.

Q.: At the Kuban resorts, summer is time for recreation and… dangerous infections. Why?

A.: There is such a term as ‘a holidaymaker’s syndrome’. When on their holiday, people would relax so much that they would forget the elementary rules of safe behaviour; they stop looking after themselves and their children.
