Maximum Age Limit For DPT 2 And Polio 3 Immunization?
Good afternoon … I want to ask, what is the maximum limit for immunization for 2 and polio 3 when? thank you
Thank you for the question.
DPT immunization (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus) is given as protection so that children are more immune to the three diseases. In order to get more optimal protection, this immunization needs to be given 5 times since the child is 2 months old to 6 years old. The recommended immunization schedule is:
DPT 1 when children are 2 months DPT 2 when children are 3 months DPT 3 when children are 4 months DPT 4 when children are 18 months DPT 5 when children are 5 years Booster immunization, which is once every 10 years Whereas, polio immunization is recommended to be given so that children are immune to polio. These immunizations are available in 2 types, namely immunizations that are dripped directly into the mouth (OPV) and immunizations that are injected into the body (IPV). For more optimal protection, polio immunization should be given on the following schedule:
Polio 0 when the child is born Polio 1 when the child is 2 months Polio 2 when the child is 3 months Polio 3 when the child is 4 months Polio booster, that is, when the child is 18 months The recommendations above are the optimal time for immunization. But if it's too late, then as soon as possible, you can take your child to the doctor or pediatrician to be given chase immunization. As long as the child is not yet 6 years old, the DPT immunization can still be pursued. And as long as the child is not 18 months old, he can still get the pursuit of polio immunization.
Hope this helps ...
