Administration Of Vaccines At Intervals Of Less Than 4 Weeks?
I want to ask about immunization in babies. My child was born on June 30, 2018. Then on July 1, he was immunized with HB0. But the next immunization schedule is on July 24 at the clinic where I give birth. Is the immunization on the 24th good for my child? Whereas in the book, the time lag for immunization is at least 4 weeks. Meanwhile, on the 24th of July it wasn’t even 4 weeks
From the information you have conveyed, the vaccine administration has a minimum interval of about 4 weeks, especially for vaccines of the same type. However, for different vaccines this may not be a risk.
In the same type of vaccine, giving the second dose of vaccine with an interval of under 4 weeks, has a risk that the effectiveness of immune formation will not occur optimally, so if the administration of the same type of vaccine is given before 5 days or more than the second dose schedule, it is recommended to re-administer the vaccine, but this does not include certain types of vaccines, such as the rabies vaccine.
Therefore, if the scheduled type of immunization is not yet 4 weeks, it is necessary to discuss it directly with your pediatrician. So that you get more precise information regarding your baby's immunization range. This is necessary, as your pediatrician has a better understanding of your baby's clinical condition and your baby's immunization plan.
That is the information we can convey, also read immunization.
