Immunization For Children Aged 15 Months?
Morning, want to ask my 15-month-old child still has to immunize especially huh? Afraid to miss the immunization schedule
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Immunization is a preventative effort or an attempt to make someone immune from an illness. This immunization is given in the form of a vaccine that contains bacteria, a weakened vein, or contains a protein that is able to stimulate the immune system against certain diseases. This immunization can be given according to the immunization schedule that has been set either by the government or by a pediatrician organization authorized for the health of Indonesian children. If this immunization schedule is missed for some reason, then the immunization schedule that has not been given can still be scheduled to catch up with the previous immunization. Some things can be a reason or cause of late or missed immunization schedules, such as because the child is sick, traveling, there are family activities that cannot be abandoned, or because the planned vaccine is not yet available, but all of this can still be rescheduled according to existing conditions and immunization plans applicable provision. Immunization can be done at the puskesman, posyandu, the nearest health care center, or at a hospital and independent practice doctor.
If your child is currently 15 months old, and until now has completed the immunization schedule which is a government program, then your child can continue DPT-HB-Hib and MR2 immunization. For children aged 15 months, generally have a complete DPT-HB-Hib 1 to 3 immunization schedule around 5 months of age, so that advanced dDPT-HB-Hib can be given 12 months after the third DPT-HB-Hib in the age range of 16- 36 months. Whereas MR2 immunization can be given after 6 months of MR1 and can be given in the age range of children 24-36 months.
There are also additional immunizations that do not have to be given and are not included in the national immunization program for children over the age of 12 months, so you can plan for these immunizations at the hospital or pediatrician practice, or at the vaccine home in your city. Some additional immunizations that can be considered are (can be seen in the table):
1. Influenza that can be given after a child is one year old and is repeated every year
2. Typhoid vaccine, for typhus, is given every 3 years since the child is 24 months old
3. Hepatitis A vaccine, can be given from the age of 24 months
4. The varicella vaccine, to prevent chickenpox, is given once after the child is 12 months old
5. HPV vaccine, to prevent viral infections Human papilloma virus which is at risk of causing cervical cancer in women, can be given to children from the age of 10 years after 2 times
If your child has received the vaccine in the previous time, then the child's vaccine record will be written in full about the vaskin that has been obtained. So if there is an additional vaccine column, then further immunizations can be written and adjusted to their age or a predetermined schedule.
For better information, you can consult your pediatrician about the immunization schedule that needs to be given or visit a vaccine home in your city, so you can plan other vaccine schedules.
Henceforth, if your child has an additional vaccine schedule, preferably, one week before the vaccine schedule, you start evaluating your child's general health condition, so that your child's health and stamina are in good condition both during the vaccine approach and during the vaccine day, this is to help reduce the side effects of vaccination that may occur.
Thus the info we can convey.
