With regard to those little plug-in bug killers,
I am back in New Zealand on holiday and the fire department has issued fire warnings on two things here:
1. insect repellant systems that plug in (those little ones with fluid in them)
2. night lights that plug in
They have caused a number of house fires here. Apparently they overheat really easily.

vaccination of newborn

Postby mirja » Sat Mar 14, 2009 16:59

Hi,
Nearly a month ago I had a baby daughter at the Chung Shan hospital where she also had her first hepatitis B vaccination. Next week it's time for her second hepatitis B shot and we have a date scheduled for that at the hospital, but from what I understand we don't have an appointment for it.
Does anyone know if we need to go to the hospital to get her vaccinated, or could we have that done at a clinic closer to where we live?

You can have that done in a clinic. Just bring her health book (the book they gave you at the hospital before you left) and the doctor at the clinic will record the vaccination on the book.

Hepatitis A vaccine - necessary for Taiwan?

Postby jtl8 » Fri Mar 20, 2009 19:02

Sorry to ask another vaccine question :oops: but is the Hepatitis A vaccine necessary for Taiwan? I know it is on the recommended schedule, but was wondering if it is necessary and if y'all would recommend it for our baby?

Thanks. :)

Immunization question re OPV/IPV

Postby nidhi » Wed Aug 05, 2009 22:46

Hi,

My kids are four years old now and I wanted to give them booster shots of MMR, DTaP, Varicella, and IPV. First three shots are available in Taipei but the IPV is not given here. Can anybody please let me where I can get IPV shots in Taipei for my kids.

Regards,
Nidhi.

I have the immunization schedule here and IPV is given for the first time at two months. From what I see it's given three more times after that

Which place that IPV is given in Taipei? I asked one of the doctors in Dr. Bear's clinic; they say that the polio vaccine is given oral. I wanted the injection vaccine of polio

I remember requesting the IPV at Adventist or Zhongshan (possibly both).

We have had the OPV at Dr. Bear's but you might be able to request the IPV before your sked appt.

We got ours at Zhongshan , some of the local clinics don't have as many options as the hospitals.

By the way, after having IPV several times it was finally mentioned to me that an oral dose is required if your kids will attend local schools.

Thanks for the reply. I will check on those places. Do they have a website in English?

Hello friend,

I called at the Zhongshan hospital and they said that they don't have IPV shots separate. They have five in one shots named: DTaP, IPV, and HIB. At what age that IPV shots was given to your child? Was it first time or the booster after 4years? Did you request any special forms for the IPV?

Regards,
Nidhi.

DTaP vaccine

Postby mafanni » Fri Oct 09, 2009 12:00

Hello!

Does anybody know which hospital/clinic might have Daptacel or Tripedia DTaP vaccine? I already asked at The Adventists’ and Zhongshan Hospital, they only have those 5 in 1 vaccines (Pediacel and Pentacel).
Hmm, maybe I just should have it ordered in a pharmacy.

And did you read The Vaccine Book by Dr Sears?
I heard it’s a great book, althought it never got into my hands.

Thanks!

Justyna
