Whooping cough, bronchiolitis… What vaccinations are necessary to prevent childhood diseases?

“When your child starts coughing, you should take them to the doctor or pediatric emergency room. We also recommend that pregnant women and people around infants get vaccinated. The University Hospital of Rouen informs us of the death of two infants from whooping cough in Rouen. We take stock of the mandatory vaccines to prevent childhood diseases.

Mandatory vaccinations

Whooping cough, bronchiolitis, meningitis… all these diseases can be avoided if your child is vaccinated. As the health insurance website notes, Eleven vaccines are mandatory in children born after January 1, 2018.

These are vaccines against diphtheria, tetanus, Polio, whooping cough, measles, mumps, rubella, Haemophilus influenzae type B, hepatitis B, pneumococcus and meningococcus type C.

Recommended Vaccines

There are other vaccines against some serious diseases, such as tuberculosis or hepatitis A. Although they are not mandatory, they remain the best way to protect vulnerable people, such as pregnant women, older people or infants.

BCG vaccines against human papillomavirus (HPV), meningococcal B, rotavirus childhood gastroenteritis, chickenpox, influenza, Covid-19 and shingles are recommended.

Prevention

As for what to do when your baby is unwell, ARS Normandy is launching an information campaign to raise awareness among new parents. Practical sheets are available there.
