Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Immunization is an active effort made by humans to improve the human immune system against diseases, especially infectious diseases in accordance with the immunizations. To conduct immunizations, the Indonesian Department of Health and the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI) have issued immunization schedules that can be a reference for medical staff and also parents, so they can carry out immunizations according to agreed provisions. This is done to adjust the scientific bouts of immunization, facilitate implementation, and make it easier to find out immunizations that have been carried out.
However, in certain conditions, a predetermined immunization schedule cannot be carried out according to that schedule, so this is a concern for parents regarding missed immunizations and related to the risk of exposure to the immunization-related infection. Certain factors trigger the missed implementation of immunizations according to the immunization schedule, such as:
1. the child is ill when the immunization schedule
3. busy parents
4. Vaccine stock is empty
Therefore, the missed immunization schedule so that children do not get complete basic immunization, this can still be done by catching up with the child's immunization. This is a concern for IDAI and the health department, so it is still recommended for infants or children who have not yet completed their immunizations to continue to complete the incomplete immunization schedule. This can be done at the nearest health service center, whether in a hospital, health center, pediatrician practice, or in a vaccine home in your city.
The schedule to catch up on immunization or catch up immunization is a step in the work done by parents and medical staff in completing the immunization schedule (especially basic immunization) that has not been done. This effort can be done as soon as possible so that the immunization can be completed as soon as possible.
Therefore, you should discuss with your child's specialist doctor, so that doctors can conduct interviews and evaluate immunization programs that have been carried out and missed schedules. With this, doctors can plan further immunizations that have not yet been conducted.
For now, you can continue working on basic immunization for your child and will be an important step to increase protection against the risk of infection or disease.
