About the Vaccines

BCG

Is a vaccine against TB or Tuberculosis and is given intradermally on left shoulder.

IPV

Injectable Polio Vaccine.

OPV

Oral Polio Vaccine.IPV is the preferred mode of immunization, however a combination of IPV and OPV will give better protection.

HIB

Is a bacteria called Haemophilus Infuenzae B which causes blood infections (Septicemia), ear infections and brain infections (meningitis) in children under the age of 5 years.

ROTAVIRUS VACCINE

This vaccine is given in 2 or 3 doses before the age of 6 months and is given orally to prevent diarrhoea caused by rotavirus.

MEASLES

Measles alone or Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German Measles) MMR may be given when the baby is 9 months complete.

FLU VACCINE

Is given from the age of 7-9 months. Two doses in the first year – 4-6 weeks apart.

TYPHOID CONJUGATE VACCINE

Prevents typhoid fever. This may be repeated 1-2 years later. No subsequent doses are required.

DTAP/DTWP DIPHTHERIA,TETANUS PERTUSSIS (WHOOPING COUGH) – PERTUSSIS

Vaccine is available as aP – (acellular Pertussis) and wP (whole cell pertussis).
They are both very effective vaccines, the only difference between the two being that ‘aP’ –gives lesser reactions like fever and pain at site of injection than ‘wP’.
