Thank you Mercy Lucy Engka for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, ORI or the abbreviation of Outbreak Response Immunization is an immunization activity organized in an effort to cut off the transmission of diphtheria disease, especially in children aged 1 to 19 years who live in areas where the condition occurs. diphtheria, regardless of previous immunization status. Where immunization in this ORI activity is given 3 times, with intervals of 0-1-6 months. Regarding the vaccine given, it actually contains the same diphtheria vaccine, only packaged in different forms and doses. Where at the age of 1 to 5 years the vaccine is given in the form of DPT-HB-Hib (the diphtheria vaccine combined with other vaccines, where the diphtheria toxoid content is 20Lf), at the age of 5-7 years DT is given (diphtheria and tetanus vaccines, containing diphtheria toxoid 20Lf), at the age of over 7 years the vaccine is given in the form of Td (diphtheria and tetanus vaccines too, the only difference lies in the dose of diphtheria toxoid of 2Lf). So for giving the vaccine to children under the age of 7 years, the dose of diphtheria vaccine is the same, which is 20Lf. Then for a distance of 1 month, it is a recommendation for people who receive the first immunization before being given a follow-up immunization, where the provision of this time is recommended because a distance of about 1 month is the time needed for the body to respond and form optimal immunity before being given the second vaccine. . Then regarding the side effects of this diphtheria vaccine, it can be:
- fever
- swelling at the injection site
- the child looks tired
- the child becomes fussy

While other conditions that can arise after being given this vaccine in the form of seizures, fainting, or allergic reactions can occur in children. In a situation where your child develops itchy rashes almost all over the body, it is best if this matter can be brought to the relevant doctor for a related examination to confirm the current condition before a related treatment can be given.
