Before I talk about the vaccine, let me update a little on CE's ear infection. His fever has subsided yesterday. Thank you all for your well wishes. I was really relieved his fever has subsided as he had to take paracetamol every 4 to 5 hours the day before. He's alright now and just needs to finish his course of antibiotics.
Feeding him medicine is a struggle every time (that's like 2 or 3 times a day!). I've to hold him tightly and force feed him. And he's really a strong li'l guy. Sometimes he can even escape from my grip.
Now back to the vaccine. I saw the poster in the paediatrician's clinic quite some time back. And I finally asked the doctor about it during the last visit. There are 3 jabs altogether (2nd jab 2 months later, 3rd jab 6 months after the 1st). Each jab costs RM450. The only thing he mentioned is that if I plan to get pregnant within that 6 months, then it's not recommended as there're no research on pregnant women. Fine with me as we definitely don't have the plan to increase our family headcount. hehehe
Even though the vaccine's quite expensive, I think it's a good prevention as cervical cancer is the second most common cancer (after breast cancer) in Malaysia. Anyone of you has taken this vaccine?
