… my child is 21 months old. When the baby in the hospital was given the HB0 vaccine, hepatitis and bcg. After that, because the child is always sick when the time for further vaccines finally does not join the vaccine until he is treated. After quite a lot of stages were missed. My husband decided that the child should not get the vaccine with some consideration. But now I will worry about the consequences later … What should I do? Has the vaccine been 21 days old?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Basic immunization is important for children to prevent dangerous and life-threatening infectious diseases in the future. Through the immunization program, the child's body will be introduced to certain bacteria or viruses that have been weakened or killed, so that it will stimulate the immune system to form specific antibodies. The antibodies formed will protect the child's body from severe infectious diseases later in life.
Basic immunization which is a government program and must be obtained by every child consists of hepatitis B, BCG, polio, DPT, and measles immunization. Other types of immunizations can be given in addition. If the child is immunized late then it is advisable to consult with a pediatrician to pursue the immunization. The principle is that if a late immunization is given, do not repeat the gift from the beginning, but continue and complete it according to schedule, whatever the delay interval from the previous administration.
That's all, hope you can help.
