Can Hepatitis A Immunization After DPT Be Done To A 1 Month Old Baby?
Afternoon, I want to ask my child 1 month ago and then immune. Can I get hepatitis A immune today? Thanks
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hepatitis A vaccine is a vaccine that is actively given for the prevention of hepatitis A virus infection in humans. This vaccine can be given to babies for the first dose between the ages of 12-23 months. For the second vaccine can be given a difference of 6 months after the first vaccine.
Possible side effects after the vaccine are:
1. pain in the arm area
2. looking tired or maybe sleepy
5. decreased appetite
To find out the child's health condition, vaccination and routine health checks are carried out by the pediatrician, so that doctors and parents can support the child's health, and support the child's growth and development and avoid the risk of unexpected health problems, such as hepatitis A infection. Therefore discuss with a pediatrician will help support the child's growth process.
In connection with your question, the administration of hepatitis A vaccine injected in the muscle can be given on the same day as other immunizations, but other immunizations must be given at different injection sites or at 2.5-3 cm difference from the other vaccine points. Aside from that, other immunizations can also be given together by entering different vaccines, such as vaccines entering the mouth can be given together with the hepatitis A vaccine.
Therefore, if your child has received DPT immunization in the previous month, you can continue the hepatitis A vaccine at this time.
If you need information relating to immunization, you can discuss in more detail with your pediatrician or with doctors from hospitals that provide vaccine services.
Thus the info we can convey.
