Vaccinations


Vaccinations can save lives

Many of the once dreaded communicable diseases are no longer a threat. Consistent vaccinations have significantly reduced or completely eliminated the incidences of communicable diseases. But how dangerous they can be has also been forgotten. It is not only smallpox, the plague and cholera which seem distant and unrealistic to many people, but also endemic communicable diseases which still occur today.

The pathogens which cause tetanus (lockjaw), for example, are still present everywhere in the environment and even the smallest injuries can trigger an infection which will often be fatal if untreated. Older adults are particularly at risk here if they refrained from having a booster vaccine which is due at least every 10 years. Numerous fatalities and incidences in the 1990s are proof of the topicality and risk of diphtheria. Under certain hygienic conditions in holiday destinations it’s easy to come into contact with and become infected with hepatitis A, a typical dirt or smear infection. Though considerably less dangerous, even hepatitis B can be acquired through contact with the blood of carriers or during intercourse.

Many aren’t aware if and when they were vaccinated against any communicable diseases, and whether they were infected with any communicable diseases as a child. Especially before travelling, before planning to become pregnant, or if there are cases of communicable disease in the immediate area or following contact with a carrier, it may be a good idea to know your immune status and thus your risk of becoming ill. The vaccinations preventive care profile includes examinations for important communicable diseases against which vaccinations are available. This can then determine your immune status and if necessary you can receive a specific booster shot.

Immunisation status for chickenpox, diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis A, hepatitis B

Tumours, myomas, lumps in the ovaries or breasts

Even if lumps are benign, they can cause problems, e.g. infertility, pain, bleeding disorders. Following precise diagnosis incl. ultrasound, hormone levels and, if necessary, pollutant load (copper, lead, mercury, solvents, pesticides, etc.), a precisely-tailored treatment can help.

We offer the following elective vaccinations:

Special preventive vaccination for chronic vaginitis:
This vaccination can help in the long term by boosting your resistance. You will first receive 3 vaccinations 2 weeks apart (in extreme cases 5 vaccinations are typically required). You should have a booster after 1 year. This preventive vaccination alleviates symptoms in 83% of patients.

Special preventive vaccinations for chronic urinary tract infections:
This three-dose vaccination boosts your body’s resistance so that approx. 80% of patients will be symptom-free. A booster is recommended after one year.

HPV vaccine:

An infection caused by HPV viruses (human papillomavirus) is the primary risk factor for developing cervical cancer (cervical carcinoma). The vaccines approved in Germany, Gardasil and Cervarix, are intended to prevent infection with virus types 16 and 18. These two high-risk virus types are responsible for the majority of cervical carcinomas and their early stages. Other, rarer types of tumours are also suspected to be caused by these viruses. Gardasil further protects against virus type 6 and 11, which cause contagious genital warts.

The aim of the vaccination is to prevent changes in the cervix which are considered pre-cancerous stages.

With just one mesotherapy session injecting a vitamin preparation into the upper arm, you will be able to enjoy your evenings and nights without being bitten by mosquitoes for the next 4-6 weeks.

This autovaccine is produced specifically for each patient. It boosts the body’s immune system as a whole. It is thus better equipped to fight a variety of illnesses. Autovaccines are indicated for immune deficiencies, e.g. bladder and vaginal infections, acne or sinusitis, but also for excessive immune responses such as allergies.

After the vaccine has been produced it is injected under the skin twice a week for 6-8 weeks. www.univaccin.de
