Immunization For 3-month Babies?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Giving immunizations to children can help increase the child's immunity to avoid various types of infections. When immunized, all or part of the body of bacteria or viruses that have been weakened into the body, the aim is to stimulate the body to form antibodies. These antibodies will later be useful in preventing future pathogenic microorganism infections.
At the age of 3 months, the government requires infants to get Hepatitis B, polio, and DPT immunizations (which contain diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus vaccines). In addition, HiB immunization can also be given to protect children from Haemophylus influenza type B infections which often cause infections in the respiratory tract and several other organ systems. Of course, not only age, this immunization needs to be adjusted also with the child's previous immunization history and the baby's general health condition.
Therefore, it is more appropriate if you first check your nephew with a doctor or pediatrician to choose the right type of immunization to be given according to the conditions, right?
I hope this helps.
