Hello Wieta Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Diphtheria immunization is an immunization that is given as an effort to prevent disease caused by infection with Corynebacterium diphteriae. Where this diphtheria case had become an outbreak (extraordinary event) in Indonesia. So that the government launched the ORI (Outbreak Response Immunization) activity, namely the activity of providing additional immunization for milk in areas experiencing outbreaks which was carried out in 3 rounds. Diphtheria immunization in the ORI program is given as many as 3 rounds, meaning that it is given with a distance of 0 - 1 - 6 months. Namely, the distance from the first immunization to the second immunization is 1 month, and the distance between the second and third immunizations is 6 months.
Pe, giving the vaccine 3 times is to build immunity against the bacteria that causes diphtheria. If your child has not received the second immunization on ORI, you should report it to an ORI health worker to get a second ORI diphtheria immunization. and Next, to complete the immunization status, invite your two children back for the third dohtheria immunization, which is a distance of 6 months after the second ORI dohtheria.
