What Immunizations Should Be Given To Babies Aged 12 Days And How Is The Schedule?
night … I want to ask my baby is only 12 days old … when he was born he already injected the polio vaccine with hepatitis BO … 4 days later I was in control again my baby in the health center was constantly asked whether he wanted an injection of immunization or not … I do not understand it so I say “later” I am afraid that if anything happens to my baby … what immunizations should be given ?? also how many times does the baby have to be immunized and how old is the right time for immunization …
In newborn children there are several vaccinations that can be given such as:
BCG vaccine to protect children from tuberculosis infections which can be given 1 time at birth until 2 months of age. Polio vaccine to protect children from polio virus infection, given 4 times at 0 months, 2 months, 3 months, 4 months and booster at the age of 18 months Hepatitis B vaccine given 4 times at birth, 2 months, 3 months and 4 months DPT vaccine given 3 times at 2 months, 3 months, 4 months and booster at 18 months, 5 years, age 10-12 years and at the age of 18 Hib vaccines are given at the age of 2 months, 3 months and 4 months and a booster is given at the age of 18 months. (In Puskesmas Hib-DPT-Hepatitis B vaccine given through 1 vaccine called pentavalent) Measles vaccine is given at 9 months and a booster at 18 months and at school age / 6-7 years old So if you look at the child's current age of the vaccine that may be given is BCG immunization which is ideally given before the child is 2 months old. Immediately immunize your baby to get protection from the risk of health problems that can threaten. You can also have your child checked by a doctor or pediatrician before immunization or consult other additional immunizations needed by the child as recommended by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association.
