Immunization Has Not Been Completed In Children Aged 16 Months?
my child is 16 months old and has 12 kg of milk, was immunized only until the age of 3 months I forgot what immunization, if I want to complete the immunization series again is it not too late? If not, what treatment is right for me to do?
Hello, good morning. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Delay in immunization often occurs especially if the child has had a long illness, immunization can be done especially up to the age of 1 year for basic dose immunization and up to 4 years for further doses or tests and can even be done again until adolescents. This is because it is related to the purpose of immunization itself which is to stimulate active immune cells so that it can help the body fight infection when it occurs so that it does not occur until illness. Some immunizations that can be done are
Hepatitis B is usually recommended for children to be given at any time by checking blood which is in the form of anti-HBs
DPT is given at a distance of 1 year after the third DPT and can be repeated again before entering elementary school or around the age of 5 years
Polio is sufficiently continued according to the child's schedule and age
Measles can be given in the form of MMR if it is more than 1 year of age
To find out the exact schedule of delivery and adapted to the conditions and needs of children can consult with a doctor, especially a pediatrician.
So far, you should do the following, that is
Inadequate nutrition and fluid needs so that the immune system is good
Avoid prolonged and prolonged exposure to people who are sick
Maintain the hygiene of the child's body well but do not inhibit the growth and development phases such as the oral phase where the child enters the items let the child experience it but is assisted by maintaining the cleanliness of the items put in the mouth.
Thus the information we can convey. Thank you
