Good evening doctor. I have a 1 year and 8 month old child, my child has never been vaccinated except for the hepatitis vaccine at birth. Can my child get the complete vaccine back? Thank you.
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Immunization in children is one of the measures aimed at stimulating and strengthening the child's immune system against several infectious diseases, including Polio, BCG, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Hepatitis B, and several other diseases. The schedule for immunization in children from birth has been issued by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI), you can access this schedule at this link.
However, in some cases, immunizations cannot be given on time so that they are behind schedule or have an incomplete history of immunization. If this happens, batch immunization can be done to ensure the child continues to get immunized against some diseases that are missed. It is recommended to consult a pediatrician regarding further examination and management related to immunization that can be given to your child. For more information about immunization, you can access the related article at this link.
Hopefully this information can help you,
