I just had a sore throat, so now I’m still advised to take amoxicillin until it’s finished. But maybe I want a diphtheria injection. Is that okay? Thanks

Hi Hesti. In general, diphtheria vaccination is a protection to prevent infection caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae bacteria. In vaccination, the body is given germs that are killed which aims to trigger the body's defense reaction to make antibodies against these germs so that in the future if germs enter, the body is ready to fight. In general, there are no absolute contraindications to vaccination except the presence of an allergy to the vaccinating substance. However, there are several things that can cause delays in vaccination, namely:

1. the presence of infection experienced which is characterized by the presence of fever. If the cough is mild, it can still follow the vaccination. However, you must first consult with your doctor.

2. Are taking certain antibiotics because the use of antibiotics can kill germs that are entered into the body before the body's defenses respond

Consult again with your doctor for more information. There is a history of allergy to eggs, vaccination should be under the supervision of a doctor. The following is about diphtheria vaccination. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
