In your daily routine, pneumococci could always be transmitted via respiratory droplets or contact with articles soiled with respiratory discharges, particularly in the course of having meals. Pneumococcal infection could lead to consequences with different levels of severity, including sinus, middle ear infection, bacteremic pneumonia, sepsis, and meningitis. These diseases could be lethal. Among all the age groups, children and elderly are recommended to receive PCV13 (one dose) for better protection as their situations are often more critical.
Cervical cancer develops in a woman’s cervix, and almost all related cancer cases are linked to HPV infection. Different genotypes of HPV will lead to diverse diseases, including genital warts (for men and women). Some studies advised that nearly 80% sexually active people will face the threats of HPV infection in their lifetime. HPV infection could incur no significant symptoms, and HPV transmission cannot be avoided even using condoms. HPV Vaccine is prophylactic vaccine that could protect men and women aged 15 or above against HPV infection, allowing the immune system to develop HPV antibodies.
