My baby is 6 months old, I should have been more than 3 months old, exactly 25 November last year, it was the 4th immunization but since I just returned to the field for almost 3 months, I forgot to immunize my child until now. Moreover, the KIA book is also left at home. So I am confused if I want to follow up now, can I? Do you have to check laborat first? Like what most people say. Please advise. Thank you

Hello, Mrs. Levana. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.

Referring to the 2017 Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI) immunization calendar, children aged 6 months are recommended to have been given the following immunizations:

Hepatitis B; 4 times; at ages 0, 2, 3, and 4 months (if the 2nd to 4th vaccine is a combination vaccine with DTPw) Polio; 4 times; shortly after birth or when the baby is discharged from the birthplace health facility (in the form of an oral vaccine), and at the age of 2, 3, 4 months (respectively for injections of polio-1, polio-2, and polio-3). BCG; 1 time, recommended before 3 months of age, most optimal at 2 months of age Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (DTP); 3 times; at ages 2, 3 and 4 months (if it is a DTPw vaccine or a combination with another vaccine) Haeomophylus influenza type B (HiB); 3 times; at ages 2, 3, and 4 months Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV); 3 times; at ages 2, 4 and 6 months The recommended age for vaccination shows the best time to obtain the optimal benefits of vaccination. If the child's age has passed the recommended age, catch-up immunization can still be done immediately. We advise mothers to check the child to the doctor or pediatrician. Lab examination is not a routine requirement that must always be done, unless there are indications according to the judgment of the examining doctor. If the child's health is excellent and there are no contraindications, catch-up immunization can be given.

Such is our explanation. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
