The Time Lag In Giving Immunizations To Children?
Why is there a need for time lag in giving immunizations to children?
The time lag between immunizations in children is intended to give the body time to form antibodies or immunity to each immunization given.
Immunization itself is divided into 2 types, namely:
-Active immunization: immune system that is formed through vaccination or having experienced certain diseases
-Passive immunization: the body's acquired immunity by injection is either serum or immunoglobulin.
In active immunization given to children, experts have formulated the time interval between vaccines so that the immune system is optimal and the child can avoid diseases that have been vaccinated.
In addition, giving vaccines means introducing germs / viruses either in the form of weakened germs or certain parts of the germ's body that have gone through a chemical process. Thus it is not possible to give various types of germs in large doses at once through immunization because it can make children susceptible to illness.
