Immunizations are a vital part of childcare. It is one of the greatest gifts that we (as a parent) can give to our children – an assurance that they won’t succumb to childhood diseases that used to carry a high mortality rate.
To-date, Little Edison has taken 10 jabs (including 2 jabs at birth). I’m glad that he has taken all his compulsory jabs now. His next compulsory jab will be 6 – 7 years old. I can finally heave a sigh of relief.
It’s so heart-wrenching to see him crying every time the needle pierced through his delicate skin. How I wish that there is a needle-free and painless vaccination system in Singapore!
Our wallets feel the ‘pain’ too. It’s amazing how these jabs can cost us a bomb! I didn’t realize that I’ve paid over $1000+ for these vaccinations.
