Infants Aged 1 Month Have Not Had The Hepatitis B Vaccine?

Afternoon doctor, my child is now 1 month more than 4 days. But you can’t get the vaccine at all due to sepsis, can you now get HB immunization?

1 Answer:

Good evening Siti Nurwandari, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Based on immunization recommendations that are based in Indonesia, at the age of 1 month as in your child, the child should have gotten the first hepatitis B (HB) and polio immunization, as well as BCG immunization. In general, all children are obliged to get immunizations, unless there are some circumstances where a child is indeed not allowed to get immunizations, namely when:

The child is suffering from a disease that has been long
The child suffers from a severe allergy
Was experiencing a high fever due to certain diseases
Are experiencing certain circumstances where the child has decreased endurance
There are other people in the same house who are sick

In addition to the general conditions as mentioned above, there are several other conditions that are not recommended not to be immunized, including one of the conditions of sepsis suffered by your child. If the treating doctor has stated that your child has recovered and is healthy, then your child is generally able to receive HB immunization and other basic immunizations as recommended. But if your child is still not cured, the doctor will generally postpone immunization until your child's condition is healthy. Therefore, you should ask about the condition of your child to the doctor who cared for him, whether your child has been able to get a basic immunization according to his age or not because the doctor knows the exact condition of your child, whether he is still sick or healthy.


I hope this helps.
