What is dengue vaccination?

Hello Dr, I was scrolling through my social media and accidentally came across an ad about dengue vaccination. Can you explain a little bit about dengue vaccination?

Hello and thank you for your question.

Dengue vaccination involves administering vaccines, such as Dengvaxia and Qdenga, to individuals to provide immunity against the dengue virus. These vaccines stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies, which can help prevent or reduce the severity of dengue fever upon exposure to the virus.

Dengue vaccination is a crucial preventive measure, particularly in regions where dengue fever is endemic, to reduce the burden of this mosquito-borne disease. It is typically recommended for individuals living in or traveling to areas with high dengue transmission rates. However, it’s essential to consult healthcare professionals for personalized advice on vaccination, as effectiveness and eligibility criteria may vary based on factors such as age, prior dengue exposure, and individual health conditions.

I hope this helps! You can let us know or make appointments with our doctors on DoctorOnCall if you have any more questions.
