BUSTRIKS WHAT IS AND WHAT IT IS USED

Bustriks is a vaccine used as a booster (booster) dose in children aged 4 years, adolescents and adults to protect against three diseases: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough). The vaccine works by causing the body to produce its own protection (antibodies) against these diseases.
 

 Diphtheria:

 
Mainly affects the airways and sometimes the skin. Generally the airways become inflamed (swollen) causing severe breathing difficulties and sometimes suffocation. The bacteria release a toxin (poison) that can cause nerve damage, heart problems and even death.
 

 Tetanus:

 
Tetanus bacterium enters the body through cuts, scratches or wounds in the skin. Wounds that are especially prone to infection are burns, fractures, deep wounds or wounds contaminated with soil, dust, horse manure or wood. Bacteria release a toxin (poison) that can cause muscle stiffness, painful muscle spasms, convulsions and even death. Muscle spasms can be strong enough to cause bone fractures of the spine.
 

 Pertussis (whooping cough):

 
Pertussis is a highly contagious disease. The disease affects the airways causing severe spells of coughing that can interfere with normal breathing. Coughing is called "whooping cough". Can last 1-2 months or longer. Pertussis infection can also lead to inflammation of the ear, bronchitis can last long, pneumonia, seizures, brain damage and even death.
 
The vaccine does not contain ingredients that can cause diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis.
