Is The Danger Of A 1 Month Old Child Being Injected With The Infanrix Hexa Vaccine?
I want to ask the doctor, if the injection of infanrix hexa done at 1 month is safe or not … I mistakenly wrote the month of birth of the baby doctor.

Infanrix Hexa vaccine is one of the injection preparations which contains toxoid diptheria, tetanus toxoid, pertussis toxoid, Haemagglutinin filament, Pertactin, Antigen (substances that stimulate the immune response that produces antibodies). This vaccine is used for vaccination of DPT, hepatitis B, polyomy research in infants. Vaccination or immunization is an attempt to stimulate the formation of the immune system against certain infectious diseases by giving vaccines that contain viruses or bacteria that are dead or weakened so that they do not cause pain to the vaccine recipients.
The fastest DPT vaccination can be given at 6 weeks of age. Hepatitis B vaccine is given at the age of 1 month, the second hepatitis B vaccine. And polio vaccine is safe given at 1 month of age (even the first polio vaccine is given at birth, ie before the baby is discharged), even so it should be given at 2 months of age.
DPT vaccine and polio vaccine given prematurely, can increase the risk of side effects. Therefore, mothers need to pay attention to what happens to the child, especially within 24 hours after the vaccine injection. Immediately go to the nearest health service center if there is something strange with the child.
Thus hopefully useful.
