Hello Mrs. Novita! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Mild illness, such as a common cold cough, should not make you delay giving immunizations to children. However, if your child seems to be having a serious illness, you can take him to the pediatrician. The mother can consult about the child's condition and whether the child is strong enough to be immunized. Vaccines are usually postponed or not given to children with low immune systems due to certain diseases (such as HIV and cancer) or undergoing certain medications (such as chemotherapy), have blood clotting disorders or have recently received blood transfusions, have tuberculosis (TB), or have had a severe allergic reaction after receiving a similar vaccine. If your child does not experience these disorders, your child can still receive immunizations even if they have a cold cough. Immunization will provide immunity for your child, so that they do not experience serious and deadly illnesses in the future. If immunization must be postponed, don't forget to schedule a follow-up immunization for your child with your doctor.

This is information from me. I hope this helps.

Regards,

dr. Selvi
