my child had the Hexaxim1 vaccine at 2 months old, then the Hexaxim2 vaccine at 3 months old. But when I read it turns out that the Hexaxim vaccine has an interval of 2 months, whereas my child only has an interval of 1 month. Is that okay? Or will it have an effect later on my child? If it is good for Hexaxim3 at 1 month intervals back or 2 months? Thank you

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question
The hexaxim vaccine you are referring to contains 6 types of vaccine combinations consisting of DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus), hepatitis B, polio, and haemophilus influenza B. DPT is given from the age of 2 months and then given up to 3 times with a distance of 4-8 weeks. So that in this case allowed age 2 and 3 months for the first and second doses, or in other words the vaccine does not need to be repeated.
Hepatitis B vaccine is given in 3 doses, where the first dose is given at birth. The second dose is given a distance of 4 weeks from the first dose (age around 1 month), then the distance of the second dose with the third minimum of 8 weeks to get optimal protection.
If in this case between the second and third doses only given a distance of 4 weeks, it seems that the resulting protection is not optimal. The vaccine should be returned with a minimum distance of 8 weeks from the last vaccine. In other words for the third hexaxim vaccine should be done with a minimum distance of 8 weeks from the last vaccine.
If you are in doubt, you should consult with your pediatrician for further advice.
That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam
