.. Is the IPV vaccine for pediatricians and midwives different? and is it okay to change to a midwife if the first IPV vaccine is administered by a specialist? thank you

1 Answer:

Hello Mrs. Ika,


Your child can do the IPV (inactivated polio vaccine) at any health facility, both private and government owned. Of course, the contents are the same, as long as the health facility is registered and trusted. Tell your midwife a history of previous immunizations so that the midwife can determine the vaccine, and ask if an IPV vaccine is available. Better yet, if you have a special record of your child's immunization history.


IPV is given at ages 2, 4, 6 and 18 months. Apart from IPV, another type of polio vaccine is OPV, which is the oral polio vaccine. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but are equally well done. IPV side effects include swelling and the injection which may be accompanied by a mild fever.


Keep immunization on schedule and weigh your child every month at Posyandu to monitor their growth and development.
