Immunization On Left And Right Thighs?
Hello … I want to ask. My son was injected with his left thigh last month but this month he was injected again with his right and left thigh. Now that my child is 7 months old, is that okay or there will be side effects later? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
If your baby is currently 7 months old, referring to the IDAI immunization guidelines (Indonesian Pediatrician Association), he should have obtained the following types of vaccines:
Hepatitis B 1, 2, 3, 4
Polio 0, 1, 2, 3
DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) 1, 2, 3
Hib (hemophilus influenza type B) 1, 2, 3
Others, for example PCV (pneumococcal) and Rotavirus
The various types of immunizations above, can be given in the thigh area, or may not. Some immunizations that are often given on the thighs, for example DPT and Hepatitis B, require an intramuscular injection route (injected into the muscle). Is this immunization meant? So, exactly when does your baby get these immunizations? Is it on schedule? Is the immunization done directly by a doctor or carried out under the direct supervision of a doctor?
Without knowing what type of immunization is intended, it is certainly not appropriate if we determine whether the actions taken against your child are correct or not. But in general, these immunizations are carried out directly by the doctor or carried out under the direct supervision of a doctor, you do not need to worry too much. With his experience and competence, doctors certainly understand better what is best for your child. A good doctor will only take a medical action on his patients if the perceived benefits far exceed the potential risks. However, if in doubt, do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion to the doctor or other pediatrician, huh?
I hope this helps.
