Immunization is a prevention that is used to prevent the occurrence of a disease, especially an infection that often occurs mainly in children, and has a severe complication. One of the gifts is polio, a good gift is in accordance with the schedule that is at birth, age 2, 4, 6, 18 months if given according to the schedule the effectiveness will be more optimal
However, if a condition occurs that can cause being late, such as fever, forgetting the schedule, then the gift is not repeated but continues according to the schedule.
We recommend that you give a complete immunization
