Dengue Vaccines For Holders Of Health Insurance In Thailand

Dengue Fever has taken away a lots of innocent lives in the past since it was first discovered. To be more specific, this horrifying disease has infected 390 million human beings on a yearly basis- that is according to the data provided by the World Health Organization. From that terrible number, around 2.5% of the total number of infected patients die every year.For starters, the Dengue Fever is caused by the Dengue Virus, which can be acquired by being bitten by a mosquito that is carrying any of the 4 known strains of the said virus. In the past, many health experts were working extremely hard in synthesizing a vaccine that would make someone vaccinated with immune to the said disease.  In addition, fortunately, they have successfully synthesized a vaccine that has already been proven effective by years’ worth of research and samplings. The good news for Thai nationals especially those who have an existing health insurance in Thailand, you can already have yourself vaccinated with the Dengue vaccine at the Samitivej Hospital- the first health facility in Thailand to offer that specific vaccine.

Health officials in Thailand acknowledge the fact that Dengue has brought both social and economic loss to the kingdom and its citizens. Students miss classes and workers do not come to work when infected. Since the Dengue vaccine was approved and recommended to be used for public consumption by the World Health Organization in 2016 in Thailand, the vaccine itself has been classified as safe based on the analysis of the data that was collected from 18 different clinical tests. When vaccinated by the vaccine in Thailand especially if you have a health insurance in Thailand, your body will be able to produce antibodies that will fight the virus. However, the immunity will be complete upon having vaccinated at least, two times at two different periods. The main objective of the vaccine is to reduce the alarming mortality rate by at the very least, 50%, and the number of people being hospitalized to this deadly disease by at the very least, 25%- by the year 2020.
