Hello Mom and Dad,
If a hepatitis B infection is detected in the mother, the child will be given a passive type of immunization, namely the type of immunoglobulin for the Hepatitis B virus, if there is no data on infection, the baby will be given an active type of immunization. namely Hb0 after the baby is born. Generally for the immunization schedule for infants, HB 1 is next at the age of the baby at the 2nd month, Hb2 at the age of the baby at the 3rd month, and Hb3 at the age of the baby at the 4th month.
Vaccination of your baby with a distance of less than 4 weeks is generally rarely done because it is feared that the effectiveness of the second vaccine is not optimal. But not bad for the baby. The second injection of vaccine can be written as HB1 which is then set to the next schedule at least 4 weeks after vaccination.
What can be recommended is to record vaccination history and check body weight to monitor growth and there is immunization schedule data. When giving the vaccine, make sure the baby does not have a fever, is in good health. Communicate with the clinic and the doctor who handles it so that there is no misinformation about your baby's data. Give exclusive breastfeeding for babies so that their immune system and digestion are good.
