No more jabs this year!

vaccineImmunizations 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.

Shawn has got thick skin. He has not cried a drop for all jabs. The most is a wince and a frown at the doc and that’s it. Mummy is the one whinning away.

by the way, for the headline post, would be nice if we could see the full post, instead of clicking further to read ? Just thought more convenient….



My missy took 2 more than the table you posted. rotavirus (oral) before she was 6 months old and at 13months we took chicken pox vaccination too. 1 jab.

Now, im thinking should take the Hep A for her. after she is 2yo. do you take that ? it’s in the optional jabs




Rotavirus only available for baby before 6 months. after you missed this age, there is no need to take rotavirus anymore.
