in Berlin and Paul Ehrlich Paul-Ehrlich-Institut in being enough
each year. For persons with certain basic suffering and for older
humans an Influenzavirus infection represents a special endangerment,
because it comes in the disease process frequently to complications.
Often are this bacterial pneumonias, which can end deadly. "the
best protection from a virus flu exists in the in time accomplished
inoculation, which should be repeated due to the high change ability
of the Influenzaviren annually with the current vaccine of the
season", stresses a speaker Robert of the institute for cook.
is important in addition for persons, who come daily with many
humans into contact. Like that physicians and male nurses are
for example, in addition, other hospital personnel with direct
patient contact, in increased measure an infection risk suspended
and the Influenzainfektion can transfer to others, in this case
to particularly endangered ill or old humans during its activity.
Same applies to the persons employed in geriatric homes.
inoculation protection only after two weeks developed
The Influenza inoculation should be accomplished as as possible
in October or November, since most medical cases arise between
Decembers and April. After the inoculation the immune system needs
approximately 14 days, in order to develop a complete immune protection,
it begins at the earliest after one week.
Fear of heavy
side effects does not need to have anybody. "for some years
the used gap vaccines from killed Influenzaviren are well compatible",
explain an expert of the Paul Ehrlich institute. Besides each
vaccine load by Paul Ehrlich Paul-Ehrlich-Institut one control
and one release only then for application.
of the Pneumokokken inoculation think
virus flu is not however only dangerous. The constant inoculation
commission at Robert Koch-Institut recommends humans over sixty
years as well as all persons with a increased health endangerment
due to a basic illness (chronic illnesses or immune defect) since
1998 the inoculation against Pneumokokken (with a Polysaccharidimpfstoff).
children under two years when being present a health disturbance
or further factors of risk an inoculation with a Pneumokokken
Konjugatimpfstoff is recommended. Pneumokokken (Streptococcus
pneumoniae) are important exciters of pneumonias and brain skin
inflammations. According to estimations dies in Germany annually
4000 to 8000 humans? above all old and chronically patient? at
(invasiven) Pneumokokken infections.
Beside the Influenza are thereby Pneumokokken illnesses the most
frequent cause of death in Germany, which could be avoided by
inoculation. For the Pneumokokken is possible a common inoculation
date with the Influenzaimpfung. The Pneumokokkenimpfung is fundamental
the whole year over possible. An annual repetition of the Pneumokokken
inoculation should be made in no case, because the inoculation
protection works six years.
