Beku daaa...

Recently the Australia's chief medical officer has told doctors to stop giving the seasonal flu vaccine to children. He said the concerns stemmed from a significant rise in the number of children developing a fever after receiving the vaccine. For further reading click here and here.

Anyway, I am not a big fan of flu vaccine, even if its free & supported by the government. Not for my baby or even for me. We all know that there have never been a proper flu vaccine being designed for young kids below school age. Yet I personally know a few paediatrician giving out flu jabs to toddlers at the age of 18months. I am not questioning their credibility, however I am compelled to be a smart mother and decides what is best for the family. Right?

I've always believed that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. When you have your first flu, your body will work hard to build up antibodies for the next battle. I believe if we do it right, out body will grow stronger from each battle.

Anyway, itu kisah kalau dah sakit. So belum sakit, why don't we try these tips to avoid flu during the cold season:
  1. Always wash your hand after coming home.
  2. No face (especially mouth, eyes, nose & ears) touching unless you know darn well that your hands are clean or where they have been.
  3. No sharing classes, bottles, drink & etc.
  4. Sneeze alert. Don't sneeze suka suka hati coz any germs akan bersepah merata-rata in your home or onto other people.
  5. frequently wipe/clean the stuff commonly touch by many many people in your home (phone, door knob, keyboard, tv remote, light switch).
  6. Stock up on your Vitamin C intake.
  7. Cook lots of warm soupy meal using lots of onion & garlic (they have the best anti-bacterial props).
  8. No kissing the sick person or being kissed by a sick person.
  9. Always have a good rest & perfect good night sleep. That is when our body builds its protection and recover any damages cells.
  10. Fluf Up! Layer up your clothes & keep your body warm.
  11. When there is sun outside, go on an enjoy a bit of its ray along with the fresh air.

We (my hubby and I) are never been tempted to get the flu vaccine too even though it could be quite cold during winter. The coldest last year was -5 degrees. Luckily this year, we're going back (in fact we're going back THIS FRIDAY!)
