Distance Of Polio Immunization In Infants?
At noon, yesterday I finished immunizing my 4 month old baby and the doctor said next month (at 5 months) it’s time for polio immunization 4 u0026amp; ipv. What I asked was whether the immunization was allowed to be carried out at the same time because when I saw the KIA opening, it was stated that the distance to give was at least 4 weeks. thanks.

Based on the recommendations issued by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association in 2017 regarding the immunization schedule for children aged 0-18 years, polio vaccine (polio 0) is administered when a newborn is born at home or when a newborn is discharged from the hospital, if born in the hospital. Furthermore, the oral polio vaccine (OPV) or inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) is given by injection at the ages of 2, 3, and 4 months (polio 1, 2, and 3). One further dose is given at 18 months of age (polio 4).
In certain circumstances, the oral polio vaccine (OPV) and IPV can be given together. In addition, if there is a delay in giving the polio vaccine, then the administration is continued until the complete dose is reached. It takes at least 1 time the OPV vaccine and 1 time the IPV administration.
We recommend that you return to consult with the doctor who immunized your child, to confirm and confirm your child's immunization history. Or you can seek a second opinion from a pediatrician.
