Good afternoon doc, my child’s age is 3 months. I should have been immunized today but my child has had 3 cold cough days, so I undo it for immunization … my question is when can I be immunized again? What should wait for a cold cough or how to recover?
Hello Tin, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Respond to questions you give, regarding the delay in giving immunizations to children. Delays can be done on immunization, when the child is sick. Delay means there will be a delay in giving immunizations. Since I don't know your child's immunization history from 0 days, I can only give a general description. Basically, if there is a delay in giving immunization, then it can be given without having to repeat, or determined the repeat time. When a child is immunized, it can be given immediately. Except for BCG immuniasai, at the age of 3 months a tuberculin test must be done first. In hepatits B immunization, if the mother has a history of hepatitis before being immunized, the child must be checked for HBsAg, and anriHBs first. So the answer to your question is, in fact the child may still be immunized when a mild illness. Such as coughing, runny nose, or fever <38'C and if the cough is severe colds, or fever> 38'C and the child is very fussy you should immunize delayed. However, if you are worried you are still allowed to postpone the immunization, and immediately give it when the child has begun to improve his complaints.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
