Is It Safe If A New Baby Is DPT 3 Immunized At The Age Of 7 Months?
Siang I gina mother child 2 My second child is 7 months old and will only get immunization3. Is it okay if you just immunize now ?? My child is late because at the age of 5 months coughing and age 6 months would like a cold immunization also Thank you
Hello Gina, thanks for asking.
DPT immunization can be done singly or in combination with other vaccines. Indeed, the optimal age for DPT immunization 1 to 3 is at months 2, 3, and 4. However, if it is too late, the child can still receive DPT immunization during the catch-up period. This period starts from the age of 5 to 15 months. Therefore, please continue your baby's immunization.
Please note that in principle, a cold cough accompanied by a low-grade fever is not an obstacle to receiving immunizations. As long as the baby is not seriously ill, the doctor will allow immunizations. Thus, it prevents babies from getting late immunizations.
Thus short information from me. Hope this helps you. Regards.
