Is It Permissible To Move To Another Place For Immunization
Hello doc, my baby is immunized bcg and can get 1 at the posyandu or village midwife referring to basic immunization from the government, because the covid-19 epidemic immunization 2 can be postponed, if I get 2 immunizations at the doctor or not? Is the immunization content different? Or is there another impact if you switch immunizations from the midwife to the doctor?

Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Immunization is an attempt to provide antigens so that the body gets the body's stress against certain viral or bacterial infections. Which is where the government recommends providing mandatory immunization for babies, which includes: BCG, HB0, HB1, HB2, HB3, Polio0, polio1, polio2, polio3, DPT1, DPT2, DPT3, and measles.
This type of immunization is given according to the schedule of each immunization and the baby's age, therefore giving immunization must be mandatory and timely. But there are some conditions the baby can not do immunization, including: fever, cough, runny nose, or other illnesses. If the baby experiences this, the immunization will be delayed first, and wait for the baby's condition to improve.
Provision of immunization can be done at posyandu, health centers, midwives and immunization clinic sites available. All types of immunizations are the same, nothing is different, only different trademarks. All vaccine contents are weakened viruses or antigens from bacteria or viruses introduced into the body. So giving immunization anywhere does not affect the contents of the vaccine. Just don't forget to take notes if the immunization has been carried out.
