Good afternoon, I want to ask what is the impact of giving DPT booster to babies aged 9 months? the DPT booster should be given at the age of 18 months. So the health side is wrong when giving the vaccine, it should be measles but given the DPT booster. Then does the age of 18 months do not need a DPT booster vaccine again? Thanks.

1 Answer:

Good afternoon Mega Ayu Pratama, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


DPT immunization according to the schedule that has been recommended and applies in Indonesia is as follows:

First injection at 2 months of age
Second injection at 3 months of age
Third injection at 4 months of age
The fourth injection at the age of 18 months
The fifth injection at the age of 5 years
The sixth injection at the age of 10-12 years
The seventh injection at the age of 18 years
For the next booster injection is given once every 10 years

The injection should not be given faster than the schedule because based on research, giving a faster vaccine will not increase the body's immune system optimally, because this causes a decrease in the body's response in forming endurance during the next injection.


Henceforth, you should still follow the applicable immunization schedule in Indonesia, until stated by the doctor, so it is better before you bring your child for immunization at the age of 18 months, first consult his condition with the doctor.


I hope this helps.
