Rules For Continued Immunization Are 18 Months?
Halo..dok want to ask what date is most appropriate for further immunization (18 months) … if the immunization goes to midwife.
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. At the age of 18 months, the main immunizations that can be done are BCG, DTP, Hib and measles. Other immunizations can be done if it has not been done on the original schedule.
Regarding your question, there is no specific date for immunization. You can do it anytime because every baby has a different date of birth. This also will not affect the integrity of the immune system which will be formed later. Even if there are special times, the connection is more to the time that is made by the health service provider.
For example, in certain puskesmas, to avoid the accumulation of patients and on the basis of effectiveness, MCH clinics or Maternal and Child Health in which there are also immunizations, are only opened every Wednesday, or every Tuesday and Thursday, or the like. This can vary from place to place of health care, and you can ask yourself where you want to immunize your child. But usually if it is outside the schedule, it doesn't matter, because once again, if there is only a different date, there is no specific date for immunizing children, regardless of whether given by the midwife, general practitioner or pediatrician. So, hopefully answering your question.
