How long does the pneumonia vaccine last

Common Questions and Answers about How long does the pneumonia vaccine last


Avatar n tn I did some reading on the subject and as you are likely aware, studies of the 1976 vaccine (as per the CDC) did show 1 additional case of GBS per 100,000 people (who rec'd the vaccine). Whether or not that figure will be significantly less with the current vaccine is as yet unknown. The chance of death from H1N1 (the disease) is supposed to be lower than that of developing GBS from the vaccine.
Avatar n tn I will make sure to follow up. Do you think its usual that she has it again though being she had it last year? How long should I keep her indoors and out of preschool? She still has her severe cough but her 5 day xythromas medicine last day of medicine dosage is today?
Avatar f tn None of us are immune even with the vaccine. It has mutated from the strain in the vaccine. So I'm not going to buffets and I'm using those hand sanitizers and wiping down doors knobs etc. It may sound extreme but I personally need to get my strength back since I was injured and don't want to be set back any more if possible. Hope you get over this soon. take care!
1049530 tn?1259005959 Thanks for everyone's opinions!!! I finally made the decision last week to get the vaccine! :) So far, I haven't suffered any side effects and I went in for an ultrasound the day after I got the vaccine and every thing was perfectly fine. I went in for my weekly check up today and everything was also normal so yay! Regardless if ya'll got the vaccine or not, I really do hope everyone is doing well!!! And congrats to everyone on their pregnancy!!
Avatar f tn It depends how old you are. If you're over 65: you get the vaccine through injection on the arm and it made with dead viruses. And it is safe. He recomended I should get it. If you are young, you get that through the nose, the vaccine has live virusus. And you'll be the one decide on that. Since I am over 65, I think I am going to get it, but I can't find a place to get it. I hope this info. will help for older patients.
Avatar n tn I am one of the first people in my state (Massachusetts) to get the vaccine because of my 11 week old, so it seems they don't have a lot of information here about what side effects have come with the vaccine. My main fear is, how long will this last and will it get worse?
Avatar f tn I so appreciate your great info I'm 32 yrs No HIV Already had the flu shot No i haven't gotten the vaccinations for Hep A and Hep B but will talk to my doc about it Will consider the pneumonia shot Went for a eye check up last month should call doc to discuss the baseline ?
Avatar n tn He can't say how long it will last the pain is the worst thing then the anxiety time is passing so slowly especially at night.Has anyone had the same pattern of symtoms? as everyone else I know that has had the jab had a sore arm and that was it hence why I went ahead trying not to beat myself up about it but i wouldn't wish this on anyone.
478429 tn?1265247987 I was not even planning on getting the H1N1 vaccine since it is such a new vaccine. The regular flu shot has been around a very long time and I would definitely trust it more. But, I have only had the flu shot once and got very ill from it. The doctor suggested that I get the regular flu shot but said it was completely up to me and my family.
Avatar f tn Three hundred and forty pregnant women were enrolled in the study, sponsored by Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Half of the women were given the flu vaccine in the third trimester, and the other half, the control group, did not receive the vaccine. There was a 63 percent decrease in flu and an almost 30 percent decrease in respiratory illness with fever in the vaccinated women's children under 6 months compared with the infants of the unvaccinated women.
849762 tn?1288188348 Europe -1 week into the release of the vaccine. Yesterday 30 people had been reporting to the authorities in Sweden that they experienced such severe side effects that they felt the need to contact a hospital. Today the number is 140. The swedish newspaper Expressen is the only one in Sweden reporting on these cases and as usual this is most likely only the tip of a rather large iceberg. UPDATE: According to Dagens Nyheter, the number of reported side effects are now a few hours later 190.
147426 tn?1317269232 WHAT VIRUSES DO THIS YEAR'S FLU VACCINE PROTECT AGAINST AND HOW DO THEY DETERMINE IT? The major epidemiology groups around the world - but specifically from the US, France, Japan, Australia and China constantly survey which viral stains (cousins) are popping up and showing a quick tendency to spread. From these they pick the three that statistically will cause greater than 99% of all the seasonal disease for the next season.
162948 tn?1205256292 does anyone know how long the effects of the hormone last on the endometrium? i'm panicking that if i do conceive, i'll miscarry too. any thoughts?
179856 tn?1333550962 And since it takes about two weeks after getting a vaccine for the body to develop immunity, some of those bugs could be the flu. But the vaccine itself isn't causing disease. Myth 2: The flu is just a bad cold. While some people develop worse symptoms than others, flu symptoms tend to be much more severe than — and come on much more suddenly — than a cold.
Avatar f tn I think you need to wait a month or two after your third shots and that the time for you to check your HBsAb ( its the antiboby not the antigen).In your case, you will have your third shots January of next year (2009) so have yourself tested either Feb or March.
168348 tn?1379360675 I just do not know how you can tell if the vaccine is actually going to cause any issues in the long run when it is only tested such a short period of time. It took me 12 years to decide to have another child and I really would like to make sure that my baby does not have any issues especially from a vaccine that noone truely knows much about.
242516 tn?1368227505 This is important because in a minority of cases, the flu can lead to death from complications of pneumonia. The common cold has less severe symptoms than the flu. It's more likely to have the the symptoms of cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and fever without the chills, headache, muscle aches, extreme fatigue (a tired feeling), and loss of appetite. It gets better with time.
Avatar f tn I am hoping this does not last much longer. My husband had the same symptoms but much milder and is back to normal. Comment from: Rita, 55-64 Female (Patient) I got the flu shot on Monday, November 2. By Friday, I was getting really sick. Too sick to move and go to the hospital. By Monday, it was full-blown pneumonia (I had a pneumonia shot six months ago). The doctor gave me Advair, Z-Pak, and more. My lungs cleared some but my sinuses and throat are raw. I keep getting bouts of fever.

931415 tn?1244681111 He is also presently poised to get his own TV show in the fall, thanks to Oprah. The absolute worst of Oprah’s proteges is the celebrity spokesmodel for the anti-vaccine movement, Jenny McCarthy.
Avatar f tn but still, I'd prefer that people get accurate info from their GP's especially when it takes so frigging long to see the gastro here in Canada after a diagnosis! Don't know how long it would have taken for me to get diagnosed with Hep C otherwise. I have been incredibly healthy my whole life. Nothing much to complain about ever.
460185 tn?1326081372 When I was watching the local news last week,they did some segments about H1N1. There was also a dr and an epidemiologist there. According to the dr and the "epi", H1N1 will incubate when the school is empty. I have a few clarification questions about this: (1) How can the virus be contained before kids going to school are exposed to it? (2) Can the "source" be eliminated? (4) Does H1H1 need humans to make it thrive? (5) Is it resistant to heat and cold?
Avatar m tn And that's only when they bother tracking it at all -- last year, during the height of the swine flu frenzy, the CDC actually told state health authorities to stop counting while the agency just made up any number it pleased. The truth is, flu is directly responsible for only a few hundred American deaths in most years. Throw in the occasional outbreak, and you get an average of around 1,348 annual deaths, according to a study in the British Medical Journal.
Avatar f tn gotta die from something, (that wasn't my tune when I first learned I had hep C) I just hope to die with a good thought, thats harder for me than anything. Not so important how long you live, but how you live. Maybe the hope is if you live long enough you'll come out the other end as a good person thinking of others.
242516 tn?1368227505 Three separate federal cases denied any association between vaccines and autism, according to rulings on Feb 12, 2009. I pray that these rulings reassure parents who limit vaccination of their children, since decreasing rates of vaccination have led to U.S. outbreaks and preventable deaths from measles and Haemophilus influenzae type b. http://www.uscfc.uscourts.
Avatar n tn Really? MS? Come on now. Now, while I don't want to downplay your own afflictions (and I'm sorry you were diagnosed with MS, it's a horrible disease) - but considering there are QUITE A FEW posts of similiar nature, perhaps it's best to help provide more common/less severe possibilities as well as the "worst case scenarios?
242516 tn?1368227505 This is the usual vaccine that protects against the three flu strains that have circulated in various forms over the last 30 years. The H1N1 vaccine may be available in late October. Priority groups for the first round of H1N1 vaccination will probably include persons 6 months - 24 years, household contacts of infants < 6 months, pregnant women, persons 25-64 years with chronic medical conditions, and health care workers and first responders. More details at: http://www.cdc.
Avatar f tn (The amount is my own thought...we'll see). What is the average time line for treatment? Does anyone know the mobidity rate of Type 1? Should I get my 'final preps' in order? Lotsa questions...don't know answers...Help!! Blessings to all of us 'special' people.
211940 tn?1267884866 Same here. Left arm... midway between shoulder and elbow. First noticed it when it woke me up the first night, and each night there after. It has since progressed to where I can feel it all day... but night is the worst. Not as bad as yours, but enough to affect my sleep - and is now having a definite affect on the strength in my left arm. And no, it is not the "shooting pain" associated with a heart attach...
242516 tn?1368227505 Only 1 of the 20 cases have been hospitalized. Since the US strain is a genetic match to the Mexico strain, officials are concerned about the potential of deaths in America from swine flu. In Mexico there have been many deaths from pneumonia that sounds like ARDS to me. You can protect yourself by avoiding those who cough, ask those who do to cover their cough (not with their hands, eg. with a mask), practice good hygiene with hand washing and don't touch your own eyes, nose and mouth.
