Rules For Providing Immunization May Be?
Last month my child got an immunization that didn’t have a fever, he could schedule it 2 months later and get it to 2, is that really okay? Shouldn’t it be once a month?
Hello Nia, thank you for the bet on HealthReplies.com.
Based on immunization recommendations issued by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association, the recommended DTP immunizations are 7 times, with each gift as follows:
The first immunization is given at the age of 2 months
The second immunization is given at the age of 3 months
3rd immunization is given at 4 months of age
4th immunization given at 18 months of age (booster)
The 5th immunization is given at the age of 5 years (booster)
The 6th immunization is given at the age of 10-12 years (booster)
The 7th immunization is given at the age of 18 years (booster)
If indeed your child should get a second immunization, then it is true based on the recommendation, the second immunization is only 1 month from the first immunization. However, if your pediatrician recommends giving it within 2 months, continue to follow these recommendations because your pediatrician recommends it must be above certain considerations regarding your child's condition.
I hope this helps.
