Whooping cough is a very dangerous disease, especially for young babies. The risk of suffering and death caused by whooping cough is far greater than the possible side effects of the vaccine. A child who has not been immunized against pertussis has a one in 3000 chance of getting whooping cough. In contrast, a child who received the vaccine has a one in two million chance of having neurological damage with the vaccine. The risk of children getting pertussis increases if fewer children are immunized. The polio vaccine protects children from this now rare but crippling disease. The inactivated polio vaccine is now recommended for all polio doses.</p><p>For more information, see "<a href="/Article?contentid=759&language=English">Tetanus</a>" and "<a href="/Article?contentid=754&language=English">Pertussis</a>."</p><h3>MMR: Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine</h3><p>Outbreaks of measles in high schools and colleges are happening again. These diseases are nearly gone from Canada. However, they will come back if children are not fully vaccinated.</p><p>For more information, see "<a href="/Article?contentid=752&language=English">Measles</a>," "<a href="/Article?contentid=753&language=English">Mumps</a>," and "<a href="/Article?contentid=758&language=English">Rubella</a>."</p><h3>Hib: Haemophilus influenzae type b conjugate vaccine</h3><p>Haemophilus influenzae is a type of bacteria that causes several life-threatening diseases in young children such as meningitis, epiglottitis, and pneumonia. Before the vaccine was available, a large number of children developed H. influenzae meningitis each year. Some died and others became intellectually impaired, blind, or deaf, or developed cerebral palsy as a result of the disease. Because of the vaccine, H. influenzae type B infection is now uncommon. The Hib vaccine does not protect against pneumonia and meningitis caused by viruses.</p><p>For more information, see "<a href="/Article?contentid=149&language=English">Haemophilus Influenzae Type B Vaccine</a>."</p><h3>HB: Hepatitis B vaccine</h3><p>Vaccination against hepatitis B prevents this type of hepatitis and the severe liver damage that can occur 20 or 30 years after a person is first infected. A significant number of adults die each year from hepatitis-related liver cancer or cirrhosis. The younger the person is when the infection occurs, the greater the risk of serious problems.</p><h3>Var: Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine</h3><p>This vaccine is 70% to 90% effective in preventing chickenpox. If vaccinated children get chickenpox, they have a much milder form of the disease. By being vaccinated, you can reduce the chance of missed work and school, skin infections, medical costs, and getting shingles later in life.</p><p>For more information, see "<a href="/Article?contentid=760&language=English">Chickenpox (Varicella)</a>."</p><h3>Pneu-C: Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine</h3><p>Pneumococcal infections are serious bacterial infections that may cause pneumonia, bloodstream infections, and meningitis. The pneumococcal vaccine protects against the seven types of pneumococcal bacteria that cause most of these serious diseases. The vaccine also prevents a small percentage of ear infections caused by pneumococci.</p><p>Routine use of pneumococcal vaccine is now recommended for babies and toddlers. Some older children with serious illnesses, such as sickle cell anemia, may also benefit from the vaccine.</p><h3>Men-C-C: Meningococcal conjugate C vaccine</h3><p>Immunization for this serious, life-threatening infection is offered in infancy.</p><h3>Men-C-ACYW: Meningococcal conjugate ACYW-135 vaccine</h3><p>Students in Grade 7 are eligible to receive a single dose of this vaccine. Students who were eligible in Grade 7 and have not yet received the vaccine are eligible for a single dose of Men-C-ACYW.</p><h3>Inf: Seasonal influenza vaccine</h3><p>Healthy children age six to 23 months are encouraged to get the influenza vaccine if possible because they are at a greater risk of getting severely ill or needing to go to the hospital because of the flu. The influenza vaccine is also recommended each year for children ages six months and older if they have certain medical risk factors. The vaccine can also be given to anyone wanting immunity. Talk to your health care provider for more information.</p><p>For more information, see "<a href="/article?contentid=763&language=English">Influenza (Flu)</a>."</p><h3>HPV-4: Human papillovirus vaccine (HPV-4)</h3><p>Girls ages nine to 13 years of age may receive the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine as this virus can lead to the development of cervical cancer later in life.</p><p>For more information, see "<a href="/Article?contentid=25&language=English">Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and Genital Warts</a>" and "<a href="/Article?contentid=151&language=English">Human Papilloma Virus (HPV): What You Need to Know</a>"</p><h3>Rot-1: Rotavirus oral</h3><p>Rotavirus is a condition that causes diarrhea. Vaccines active against rotavirus became available at the beginning of 2006. One rotavirus vaccine is a live vaccine that is administered in two oral doses, one to two months apart. The other vaccine is a live vaccine that is administered in three oral doses four to 10 weeks apart. Your child’s physician will be able to provide information about the availability of these vaccines and discuss vaccination for your child.</p><h2>Other vaccines</h2><h3>Hepatitis A vaccine</h3><p>The hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for children and teenagers in selected geographic regions, and for certain people at high risk. Talk to your health care provider or local public health department for more information.</p><p>For more information, see "<a href="/Article?contentid=819&language=English">Hepatitis A</a>."<br></p>

La coqueluche est une maladie très dangereuse, particulièrement pour les jeunes bébés. Le risque de décès des suites de la coqueluche est beaucoup plus élevé que les effets secondaires possibles du vaccin. Un enfant qui n'a pas été immunisé contre la coqueluche a une chance sur 3 000 de l'attraper. Par contraste, un enfant qui a reçu le vaccin a une chance sur 2 millions de souffrir de dommages neurologiques à la suite du vaccin. Les risques d'attraper la coqueluche augmentent lorsqu’il y a moins d'enfants immunisés.</p><h3>Vaccin contre la diphtérie, tétanos combiné au vaccin acellulaire contre la coqueluche et vaccin inactivé contre la polio (DCaT-VPI)</h3><p>Il s'agit du même vaccin que le vaccin décrit ci-dessus, à l'exception qu'il contient également le vaccin inactivé contre la polio. Le vaccin contre la polio protège les enfants de cette maladie invalidante qui est maintenant rare.</p><h3>Vaccin contre la rougeole, la rubéole et les oreillons (RRO)</h3><p>En raison de récentes vagues de <a href="/Article?contentid=752&language=French">rougeole</a> dans les écoles secondaires et les collèges, les enfants doivent maintenant recevoir les deux vaccins RRO. Ils devraient recevoir la première injection à l'âge de 12 mois. La deuxième injection peut être administrée à l’âge de 18 mois ou entre l’âge de quatre et six ans. Ces maladies sont presque disparues au Canada. Cependant, elles réapparaîtront si les enfants ne sont pas bien vaccinés.</p><h3>Vaccin conjugué contre <em>Haemophilus Influenzae</em> de type b</h3><p> <em><a href="/Article?contentid=149&language=French">Haemophilus influenzae</a></em> est un type de bactérie qui entraîne plusieurs maladies potentiellement mortelles chez les jeunes enfants, comme la méningite, l'épiglottite et la pneumonie. Avant la mise au point de ce vaccin, un grand nombre d'enfants souffrait de méningite <em>H. influenzae</em> chaque année. Certains en mouraient alors que d'autres souffraient de débilité mentale, de cécité, de surdité ou d’une infirmité motrice cérébrale à la suite de la maladie. Grâce au vaccin, le <em>Haemophilus Influenzae</em> de type b n’est plus courant de nos jours. Le vaccin Hib ne protège pas contre la pneumonie et la méningite qui sont causées par des virus.</p><h3>Vaccin contre l'hépatite B (HB)</h3><p>Le vaccin contre l'hépatite B permet de prévenir ce type d'hépatite ainsi que les graves dommages au foie que peut subir une personne 20 à 30 ans après avoir été infectée. Beaucoup d'adultes meurent chaque année du cancer du foie lié à l'hépatite ou d'une cirrhose du foie. Plus la personne est jeune lorsqu'elle contracte l'infection, plus les problèmes risquent d'être graves.</p><p>Si l'un de vos enfants plus âgés n'a pas reçu le vaccin contre l'hépatite B lorsqu'il était bébé, demandez à votre médecin s’il devrait recevoir l'injection. Votre enfant nécessitera trois injections contre l'hépatite B afin d’être immunisé.</p><h3>Vaccin contre la varicelle (Var)</h3><p>Habituellement, on administre le vaccin contre la <a href="/Article?contentid=760&language=French">varicelle</a> entre l’âge de 12 mois et de 18 mois mais on peut l'administrer aux enfants plus âgés s'ils n'ont pas reçu le vaccin ou s’ils n'ont pas contracté la maladie encore. Les enfants de 13 ans ou plus devraient recevoir deux doses à intervalles d'au moins quatre semaines.</p><p>Le taux d'efficacité du vaccin est de 70 % à 90 %. Si les enfants vaccinés contractent la varicelle, ce sera une forme beaucoup plus bénigne de la maladie. En recevant le vaccin, vous réduisez les chances de vous absenter du travail et de l'école, les risques d’infection cutanée, les coûts médicaux et les chances de souffrir de zona plus tard dans la vie.</p><h3>Vaccin contre le pneumocoque (Pneu-C)</h3><p>Les infections pneumococciques sont des infections bactériennes graves qui peuvent causer la pneumonie, des infections de la circulation sanguine et la méningite. Le vaccin contre le pneumocoque protège contre les sept types de pneumocoques qui causent les maladies les plus graves. Le vaccin permet également de prévenir un petit pourcentage des infections des oreilles qui sont provoquées par les pneumocoques.</p><p>On recommande maintenant de vacciner systématiquement les bébés et les jeunes enfants contre le pneumocoque. Certains enfants plus âgés qui souffrent de maladies graves, comme l’anémie drépanocytaire, pourraient également bénéficier du vaccin.</p><h3>Vaccin contre le méningocoque (Men-C)</h3><p>L’immunisation contre cette infection grave et potentiellement mortelle débute lorsque l'enfant est bébé. Si on débute l'immunisation à l’âge d’un mois, on recommande trois doses; si l'on débute l’immunisation entre quatre mois et 11 mois, on recommande deux doses; et si l'on débute l’immunisation à l’âge de 12 mois ou plus, on recommande d'administrer une dose.</p><h3>Vaccin contre l'influenza (Inf)</h3><p>On recommande que les enfants en santé âgés de six à 23 mois reçoivent le vaccin contre l'<a href="/article?contentid=763&language=French">influenza</a> si possible car ils sont plus susceptibles de tomber gravement malade ou de devoir aller à l'hôpital en raison de l'influenza. On recommande également d'administrer le vaccin contre l'influenza chaque année aux enfants de six mois ou plus s'ils affichent certains facteurs de risques médicaux. On peut également administrer le vaccin à toute personne qui désire être immunisée. Vous pouvez obtenir des renseignements supplémentaires à cet égard auprès de votre intervenant de la santé.</p><h3>Vaccin contre le papillovirus</h3><p>On recommande que les filles qui ont entre neuf ans et 13 ans reçoivent le vaccin contre le <a href="/Article?contentid=25&language=French">papillovirus</a> car ce virus peut mener au développement du cancer du col de l'utérus plus tard dans la vie.</p><h3>Vaccin contre le rotavirus</h3><p>Les vaccins contre le rotavirus sont disponibles depuis le début 2006. L’un des vaccins contre le rotavirus est un vaccin vivant qui est administré au moyen de deux doses orales, à intervalles d’un mois ou de deux mois. L'autre vaccin est un vaccin vivant que l'on administre au moyen de trois doses orales, à intervalles de quatre semaines à 10 semaines. Le médecin de votre enfant sera en mesure de vous fournir des renseignements sur la disponibilité de ces vaccins et pourra discuter de la vaccination pour votre enfant.</p><h2>Autres vaccins</h2><h3>Vaccin contre l'hépatite A</h3><p>On recommande d'administrer le vaccin contre l'<a href="/Article?contentid=819&language=French">hépatite A</a> aux enfants et aux adolescents dans certaines régions géographiques et à certaines personnes qui sont plus à risque. Vous pouvez obtenir plus de renseignements à cet égard auprès de votre intervenant de la santé ou du ministère de la santé publique local.</p>
