, my child should have been at the age of 18 months Advanced DPT vaccine, but I postponed to go to the hospital because there was a corona virus outbreak. Is it okay if I postpone the vaccine first? And the maximum is to get the DPT vaccine until after age, right? Thank you

Hello Sarah, thank you for asking Aldokter.


Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.


DPT immunization aims to prevent diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus infections. These three diseases are quite serious diseases, and can cause death if infected. The immunization is given five times, from children aged 2 months to 6 years. The first three gifts at 2 months, 3 months and 4 months. The 4th gift is at the age of 18 months, and the last gift at the age of 5 years.


Responding to your question about delaying vaccines at the age of 18 months due to the outbreak of co-19 so that suggestions arise to reduce hospital visits. You can take your child to the Pratama Clinic that provides child immunization, or visit the Community Health Center to carry out these immunizations while continuing to carry out physical distancing. . However, if you still feel anxious, you can delay giving these immunizations.


DPT immunization that is late, does not become a matter of immunization can be given next directly on schedule, without having to repeat from the beginning how long the delay is. For example your child will be given immunizations at the age of 20 months, then for further immunization / final administration can be done at the age of 5 years.


That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
