LIFE is a DANCE if you take the STEPS. This is my DANCE. The story of my LIFE.

Dancing is moving to the music without stepping on anyone's toes, pretty much the same as life.

Some immuzations may have a few side effects. But the benefits of immunizations far outweigh the risks.

The vast majority of children do not have side effects. For those that do, they ussually aren’t serious.

Some side effects are:
– low fever
-rashes or soreness at the injection site.

Make sure to ask your pediatrician If what will be the result after the shot and what should be done. Some pediatrician will advise you to apply cold compress at the injection site.

NOTE:

There are a few vaccines that was not given to my son. It is actually our choice. But you have to consult with your child’s pediatrician first to make sure that your baby is healthy and that it is ok for him not to receive those shots.

I guess we were lucky enough because we have a clean and reliable Health Center in our area (Alapan Cavite). Most of Aidan’s vaccines were administered there. Rates are 50%-70% cheaper compared to his Pediatrician.

And just recently, I found this immunization center called Jacob’s Ladder.

Jacob’s Ladder Immunization Center is owned by Mr. Jaime Villafuerte.They provide CHEAPER vaccines to the public. The vaccines are purchased in bulk from Zuellig, the largest distributor of pharmaceutical products in the country. This explains why the center can afford to offer vaccines that are priced at least 30% cheaper than regular rates from pediatricians.

Branches of Jacob’s Ladder Immunization Center may be found in the following:

D’GRAND BUILDING
Second Floor
It is an orange building near Citimotors (Times) and SM Super Center
Temporary contact number: 0932-3745187
