What does it mean is diphtheria ORI? Diphtheria ORI immunization is a government program providing diphtheria immunization that is carried out to overcome diphtheria outbreaks. Diphtheria ORI is given in 3 cycles with a cycle of 0-1-6.
Diphtheria vaccine itself is found in several preparations in combination with tetanus toxoid or pertussis, namely:
DTaP or DPT and DT for ages 2 months to 7 years
Tdap and Td for ages above 7 years
Thus, children aged 2 years can be given a DPT vaccine. If afterward events occur after immunization such as fever, you can use fever-lowering, for example paracetamol according to the child's weight and age. Also try to make the child drink more and make the room temperature comfortable for children. Avoid giving thick blankets to children. Let the child rest enough. Wash the child with warm water and cold compresses around the injection site if it is swollen or painful.
If the fever does not go down within 3 days of immunization, you should take your child for control to the doctor or health center where you get the vaccine so that further evaluation can be done to determine whether the fever is a follow-up event after immunization or is caused by other conditions. Your doctor will provide further optimal treatment for your child.
Hope it helps you,
