Vaccination Myths and Facts

You may have completed your vaccinations when you were a child, but do you know that vaccines are not only for kids but for adults, too? Vaccines are among the most cost-effective health interventions available. They help ensure optimum health.

 

“Vaccines provide heightened protection against diseases, disabilities and even death. They prepare the body to fight diseases without exposing the person to the symptoms. Many believe immunizations are for children only. But you are never too old to get vaccinated. Newer vaccines are being developed and booster shots may be necessary to maintain the efficacy of certain vaccines. Vaccination is important especially if you have a chronic disease, are pregnant, sexually active, or if your work requires you to travel to places where you can be exposed to different diseases,” says MediCard president and CEO Dr. Nicky Montoya.

 

MediCard, a leading HMO provider in the country, debunks some myths on vaccinations:

On Gaming and Trash Talks

I am a gamer since 2006. I’ve become addicted to FreeStyle Online Street Basketball Philippines and have been attending FSPH events and tournaments within Metro Manila (Philippines).  The funny part is, I am not fond of or really into watching basketball games (whether local or international) AT ALL. I just found that game sooo addicting. I spent a lot of (almost) sleepless nights at computer shops (‘coz I was just renting a house at Narnia). 🙂 I have strayed away from my life goals and it seems like there’s nothing I can do to possibly come back and make that time up. I’ve been addicted 101% on that game. I’m not a “pro” in this field, I am just hooked into the game.

 

 

I stopped playing that online game when I had kids. Priorities. Then I’ve found out that they removed FSPH and moved to an international server as FreeStyle 2. I don’t have the full (correct) details though.

 

Then, recently, my favorite game is back but now on smartphones! I was so excited! I thought to myself, I can play the game again wherever I am and even before I sleep, and still can do my daily routines and obligations. It’s named Freestyle 2 Basketball Hero.

It’s almost similar to the old FSPH, though there are still a lot of rooms for improvement. It’s been 3 seasons since I started playing this addictive game. I’ve been playing alone (without any guilds) until I’ve reached level 38. They said that max level is 50, though I am not sure of it yet. Then, about two weeks ago, I finally found a club to join!
