Can Bcg And Polio Injections Be Given Together When The Baby Is 2 Months Old?
I want to ask, can a 2 month old baby be injected bcg and polio together?
Hello Winni Borreg, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Basic immunization is immunization given before the age of 1 year, including BCG, 1 time, polio 3 times, DPT-HB-HiB (Pentabio) 3 times, and measles once. You can see the schedule in the following link.
Some immunizations are done at one time (one of them is BCG and polio), and indeed in accordance with immunization service standards. Therefore, you do not need to worry as long as the immunization is given according to schedule (or if your child is sick, vaccination can be followed / catch up).
For BCG immunization itself is declared successful if a circle appears like a boil at the injection site. It is recommended not to compress or scratch the circle. If after immunization the child becomes feverish, paracetamol drop can be given according to the rules of use and compress the child with warm water. If complaints persist 1-2 days, can be consulted with a doctor.
To add insight, read the link of this article about the importance of keeping the immunization schedule.
That's all our answer, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
