I have a 3 year old son. This month is the schedule for the diphtheria immunization, but my child has the flu/cold, how do you do it? Can I still take Diphtheria Immunization when I have the flu? Thank you in advance.

Hello, good morning Mrs. Mariyanti.


Immunization is a prevention program against infectious diseases by giving vaccines so that a person is expected to become more immune to the disease. Diphtheria is a disease that was rarely found, but recently it has become epidemic again, one of the triggers is because many people do not get the diphtheria vaccine, so that transmission occurs to other people. Diphtheria is a disease that attacks the respiratory tract and can lead to death if it does not get adequate treatment.


According to IDAI (Indonesian Pediatrician Association), immunization of children can be done when the child has a cold that is not accompanied by fever, as long as the child is not fussy. However, if the child has a fever or is very fussy, immunization should be postponed until 1-2 weeks later.


That's all, hope it helps, ma'am.


Regards, dr. Denisa Libela
