Good afternoon,

Hi Selika,

Immunization is an effort made to provide immunity against a disease. In order to provide optimal immunity, several vaccines need to be repeated and the repetition schedule is generally adjusted to the age or time span of the last immunization. The following is the schedule for diphtheria immunization in infants:

DTP 1: Age 2 months DTP 2: Age 3 months DTP 3: Age 4 months DTP 4: Age 18 months (1.5 years) DTP 5: Age 5 years The immunization above can be adjusted to the child's health condition and the risk of disease transmission and Therefore, it is sufficient for your child to receive diphtheria immunization according to the schedule unless advised otherwise by your doctor.

If you feel doubtful or unclear about this, then you should see your doctor for a direct consultation so that you get information that is appropriate to your child's condition.

Hope it is useful,

dr. Budiono
