Ways to Avoid Fake Vaccines

Ways to Avoid Fake Vaccines - The case of fake vaccines has troubled many parents, as the effect makes many people doubt the authenticity and safety of child immunisation. There are easy ways for the Little One to get a vaccine that is guaranteed authenticity and protection.

Vaccination is the process of giving antigens in the form of live or weakened microorganisms, or parts that have to process in such a way as to cause the body of the recipient of the vaccine to be immunity. The vaccine is given with the intention of stimulating the formation of an active immune system against certain diseases.

What Is a Fake Vaccine?

Fake vaccines are preparations labelled vaccines that do not contain antigens, so they do not stimulate the formation of active immunity and make it useless. The authenticity of a vaccine can determine after going through a laboratory examination by BPOM. From the results of the study, fake vaccines generally contain ingredients as follows:
  • IV infusion.
There are several types of intravenous fluids, but generally, it is a solution of sugar and electrolytes.
  • Vaccine solvents.
Solvents are usually in the form of physiological saline or aqua pro injection that is safely absorbed by the body.
  • Gentasimin antibiotics.
In Indonesia, antibiotics to treat this infection are available in the form of fluids, eye drops, ear drops, and topical medications.

The results of the investigation of the Drug and Food Control Agency (BPOM), Biopharma, Ministry of Health, and related agencies mentioned that the side effects of fake vaccines were suspected to be small. Because it gives diluted, then if gentasimin is giving in the vaccine, the dose that enters the body will be quite low. Plus, the vaccine package is smaller (max. 0.5 ml) compared to gentamicin packaging (2 ml containing 80 mg). So, maximum gentamicin that enters the body counts around 20 mg.

After reaching the circulation of blood in smaller quantities, the drug is then excreted through the kidneys. Based on this logic, the long-term effects of gentasimin can be called very small. Side effects such as kidney and hearing disorders can only occur if gentasimin is given more than once or in high doses.

Also, an infection or an allergic reaction is a short-term risk that may occur due to injecting a fake vaccine containing intravenous fluids. In general, the appearance of an allergic reaction or infection that can happen will be seen within three days after the injection is done Infection due to fake vaccines is estimated because of the vaccine manufacturing process that does not meet sterilisation standards.
