Mede door propaganda en desinformatie over de veiligheid van #vaccines, laten steeds minder ouders hun kinderen inenten tegen ziektes die in het #rijksvaccinatieprogramma zitten. Een 🧵over het nationale #vaccinatieprogramma van @dieren_doc en @marc_veld.…
Nederland kent een nationaal #vaccinatieprogramma die vaccinaties aanbiedt tegen enkele van de meest ernstige en meest voorkomende ziektes. Hoge vaccinatiegraad betekent een goed beschermde bevolking tegen deze ziektes.
Waar bestaat #vaccinatieprogramma uit? Het programma geeft een zo snel mogelijke bescherming tegen ziektes die op jonge of oudere leeftijd ernstige schade kunnen aanrichten. Het begint met de eerste DKTP-Hib-HepB prik op de leeftijd van 3 maanden.

Daily truth bombs: #Tetanus shot. What you need to know!
There is no such thing as getting the #tetanus shot .As of 2012, the manufacturing of single tetanus shot has been discontinued. Now you get a #Tdap for adults and #DTaP for children under 7 yrs of age. 1/

A thread 🧵

Tetanus is caused by a germ called Clostridium tetani.

This germ produces a dangerous #toxin that makes your muscles painfully contract on their own & become rigid.

This man had neck stiffness & lockjaw from tetanus;
Tetanus germ lives mainly inside the soil & animal feces. It lives there for years.

When it has a chance, it enter your body through:
- Wounds contaminated with soil or feces, or
- Punctures by nonsterile needles (like some injecting illegal drugs, tattooing or body piercing)

More than 1 in 10 children worldwide missed out on lifesaving #vaccines such as #measles, #diphtheria and #tetanus in 2018: New data from WHO/@UNICEF…
Globally, since 2010, vaccination coverage with 3 doses of #diphtheria, #tetanus & #pertussis and the first dose of the #measles vaccine has stalled at around 86% - not sufficient as 95% coverage globally is needed to protect against outbreaks of #vaccine-preventable diseases
