Diphtheria And Influenza Vaccines For Children Aged 3 Years?
Our 3 year old child has just received the 3rd Diphtheria Vaccine.
Hi Elli .. Thanks for the question given.
Vaccination is a good thing and vaccines in children, especially basic vaccines, must be completed. Because the vaccine can help increase the child's immune system. When viewed from the type of vaccine, diphtheria vaccines are inactivated toxins, while influenza vaccines are classified as purified antigens, namely vaccines by inserting certain parts of the virus through DNA recombination. When viewed from these two types of vaccines, this vaccine can be administered at the same time or at the same time. What should be given at intervals of 4 weeks is when given live vaccines / live attenuated such as BCG vaccine, polio drops, measles vaccine, yellowfever vaccine. If you still have questions you can consult with the pediatrician.
