Infants Have Not Been Immunized For DPT At The Age Of 5 Months.?
Mlm … I want to ask that my child has just been immunized at the age of 3 months, and now he is 5 months 17 days, but until now I have never had a 1.2, and 3, DPT immunization, how can that be?
Hello Muhammad Ovie! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Immunization is one of the most important efforts in protecting the baby from various dangerous infectious diseases. In giving immunizations, it's never too late. Complete your child's immunization according to his age. BCG immunization is immunization to protect against tuberculosis. DPT immunization is immunization to protect against diphtheria, whooping cough (pertussis), and tetanus. Based on the government's basic immunization schedule, DPT immunization is given first when babies are 2 months old, along with hepatitis B (HB), HiB, and polio immunizations. If your child is currently 5 months old but has not yet received the immunization, you should immediately take your child to the nearest health facility to get his first DPT-HB-HiB and polio immunization. A month after the immunization, your child can receive both immunizations. Don't forget to bring your child's immunization record. You can see the immunization record in the pink book your wife used when she was pregnant. You can view the immunization schedule in the book or on the following Indonesian Pediatrician Association page. The doctor who helps immunize can give you a more detailed explanation.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
