Is It Necessary To Repeat Immunizations During Elementary School That Is Not Continued In Infancy?
Congratulations pg doctor, My child is still a baby when I was immunized against the hepatitis B vaccine. Complete. But the repetition was not continued after sitting in elementary school. Now age 21 The results of yesterday’s medical check-up stated that: there was no reaction. Should my child re-vaccinate 3x ?? Is it necessary to 3type ABC vaccine? Thank you for the answers given.

Hepatitis B vaccine serves to prevent the transmission of hepatitis B. This vaccine is given mandatory since newborns, and at the age of 2, 3 and 4 months. Based on the immunization schedule from IDAI (the association of Indonesian pediatricians) in 2017, the Hepatitis B vaccine does not repeat when the child enters school age. Re-vaccines (booster vaccines) at school age (elementary or junior high) include Td / DPT, measles and MMR vaccines.
Ideally, an antibody titer should be examined to find out whether antibodies to the Hepatitis B virus in the body are sufficient. If it is still sufficient, re-vaccination can be deferred. "Unreactive" results on the MCU test indicate that there is no hepatitis B virus. This indicates that immunity to the virus is still working.
Although you have been given full Hepatitis B immunization when you are a baby, it doesn't hurt if your child repeats Hepatitis B vaccination when he is an adult, because the vaccine's resistance is around 20 years. Giving vaccines is done 3 times with a distance of 1 month to 6 months.
Transmission of the virus is very easy. Hepatitis A, B and C viruses are viruses that attack the liver and can cause chronic liver disease. Hepatitis A vaccine is currently available, but its administration is not required. This vaccine can be done 2 times within a period of 6 months and its durability ranges from 20 years. Although Hepatitis C is a disease that is more chronic than other types of Hepatitis, unfortunately until now there has not been found a effective vaccine to prevent this disease.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully helps
