Cold Babies Don’t Dare To Immunize Up To 2 Months Is It Dangerous??
Good afternoon, my son* was born on 15-02-2018. nMy baby has a cold from the age of less than 1 month and until the age of 2 months he still has a coldnI want to ask, this is my child who has just been immunized for hepatitis B (0 weeks) while in the hospital. After that until the age of 2 months he has not been immunized anymore. Is it too late for BCG, POLIO (0 MONTHS), POLIO (2 MONTHS), DPT, HIB immunizations? And is it possible to have that many immunizations at the same time? thank you
Hello Nur Aisyah, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Mild illness, including a mild cough, especially one that is not accompanied by fever, is actually not a barrier to immunization, so you can actually immunize your baby according to the existing immunization schedule.
Currently, the only immunization that has passed the schedule is only Polio immunization (0 months), while other immunizations can still be given according to schedule (BCG can be given to babies aged 2 months, DPT-Hepatitis B-Hib in the form of pentavalent vaccine is indeed given at 2 months of age. ). For Polio immunization, your child will not be given 2 doses of Polio at once, but the administration will be delayed from the existing schedule (currently given Polio 0, next month Polio 1, next month Polio 2, and next month Polio 3). DPT-Hepatitis B-HIB pentavalent immunization is given in 1 injection only.
If there is a cold in a baby who has not recovered for 1 month, you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further examination. Colds in babies can occur due to infection or other things such as the air in your house is too dry, too cold, or there are certain substances that irritate the baby's respiratory tract (eg cigarette smoke, dust, etc.). But whatever the cause, the prolonged cold condition should be checked by a pediatrician.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
