Can I Give 2 Types Of Vaccine Together?
, for PCV vaccine, can it be done in conjunction with influenza vaccine? If you see the urgency, which priority is better if it cannot be given at the same time? Thanks.
Hello Ningsih21, Thank you for the question.
Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) is a vaccine used to prevent pneumococcal bacterial infections that can cause ear infections, pneumonia, and meningitis. This vaccine is one of the recommended vaccines for children, although this vaccine is not yet included in the government's mandatory immunization program. The amount of vaccine given to children depends on the age of the child. Influenza vaccine is a vaccine intended to prevent flu. The dose given depends on the age of the child when receiving this vaccine. In general, giving two vaccines at the same time can be done and is fairly safe. Research shows that giving two vaccines at the same time has adverse reactions and immune effects that are similar to if the two vaccines were given at different times.
Please consult with your pediatrician about the schedule and dosage of the vaccine. Make sure the child is in good health when receiving the vaccine.
