Afternoon doctor, my child 2 weeks ago at the age of 4 months just got a second ipd vaccine, and today got another third ipd vaccine because the doctor forgot that the second ipd was given. So the distance between the second and third ipd is too close Are there any side effects? And do you have to repeat the third ipd vaccine again at the age of 6 months? R nThank you for your attention

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. IPD vaccine or Invasive Pneumococcal Disease is a vaccine given to protect one's body from bacterial infections of the type Pneumococcus and Streptococcus pneumonia. Basically, these two bacteria are bacteria that normally exist in the human respiratory tract and do not cause any symptoms, but in young children, the immune system is still not perfect, this bacterium can multiply into a disease:

Pneumonia or pneumonia Meningitis or inflammation of the lining of the brain Bacterial infection of the blood Ear infection Sinus cavity infection or sinusitis

Regarding your question, this vaccine actually depends on the age of the child. For those aged <6 months, given 3x with the distance between giving 2 months (ages 2, 4 and 6 months), then given an amplifier at the age of 14-15 months. Giving a distance of 2 months that serves to give time for the immune system to make the immune system optimally. If the distance is too close, then the benefits provided to your child's immune system may not be optimal. But it should, if the distance is 1 month, there is no need to do the initial injection and just continue on the next injection with a distance of 2 months.

Even so, our advice is that you should still reconfirm the information you get from us with your pediatrician, because with direct talks in both directions, the possibility of misunderstanding can be reduced. So before your child's next injection schedule, you should have reconfirmed with your pediatrician whether there is a change in the injection schedule for your child. Apart from all this, IPD injection itself is not included as mandatory injection, so it does not really matter if someone does not get this immunization in his childhood. So, hopefully answering your question.
