People are advised to get vaccinations or immunization against infectious diseases, as a pragmatic precaution. Some routine vaccinations are made mandatory for Sri Lankans. For the last 200 years, the use of vaccines has continued to reduce the health care burden of many bacterial and viral diseases.
Park Hospitals conducts it’s own Immunization Clinic headed by a consultant Paediatrician, supported by a team of specially trained doctors and nurses, who ensure that babies and children are immunized with utmost care and comfort. All vaccines in use at Park Hospitals are imported from reputed manufacturers who produce globally recognised brands. These vaccines are stored with precision control, under correct temperatures, following international guidelines, to ensure the products’ quality at the time of use. These factors combined ensure that the immunization clinic at Park Hospitals is on par with international standards.
Some of the immunizations available at Park Hospitals for babies and children are BCG, DTP, OPV, HBV & Hib, Measles, ATD, Rubella, Tetanus Toxoid and Hepatitis for children, among others.
Vaccinations available for adults are many, and among them are Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Japanese Encephalitis, Hepatitis B, Rabies, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Measles, Cholera, Yellow Fever, Influenza and Chicken Pox.
