Mom of a 1 yr 8 m old girl

Q. My baby is 5 month old now...she has not vaccinated with 14th week vaccines. Can we give it now??

ExpertDr. Pandurang sawantPaediatrician
A. Yes sure Give it as soon as possible At 14,wks ur baby will have DTP, HiB, Hep. B, and IPV Plus Pneumoccocal vaccine Plus Rotavirus vaccine. In DTP component if u go for whole cell ie DTwP It may cause pain fever and sometime swelling at vaccination site (painful vaccination). In DTP component if u go for accelular ie DTaP It doesn't cause pain fever and swelling at vaccination site(painless vaccination). Both Vaccine ie whole cell or accelular are equally good and effective

A. Yes, you should give the vaccine on time. Immunization protects the child from serious diseases as when a particular vaccine is given to a child, the body produces antibodies in response to the vaccine and the child develops protection against that siecifuc disease. Thatswhy, the timely immunization is very important for the child. Cibsukt your paediatrician to give you a vaccination calendar where all the vaccines are mentioned to be given and at what particular age, they should be given.

A. Hello...Yes.... But don't postpone d scheduled vaccines unnecessarily unless there is a reason like baby is ill or any other allergy reason. kindly Consult your paedritician However, it is strongly recommended to follow the proper time schedule suggested by the doctors.
