Knowing your child’s vaccination schedule 2018

As a parent, we know that vaccination, also known as immunization, is the first step to protect your child from vaccine-preventable diseases in the future. Vaccination can protect children from serious illness and complications of vaccine-preventable diseases which can include removal of limbs, paralysis, liver diseases, brain damage, deafness, and death. The vaccine schedule below is recommended by the CDC, the IAP, and most physicians. A group of healthcare providers and public health officers reviews it every year to include the latest safety and research guidelines.

Things to Remember During Vaccination
 

  • Ensure to remember and administer the vaccine to your child as per the schedule. Discuss with your pediatrician if you miss giving a vaccine. He will recommend a suitable later date to administer the same.
  • A child should not be given the vaccine if he has an ongoing fever. Discuss this with your pediatrician and he will help reschedule the administration of the vaccine at a later date.
  • Sometimes pediatricians might offer you the option to choose from a painless and a painful vaccine for your child. Ensure to discuss them with your pediatrician to make an informed decision as the immunity of the child decreases faster with painless vaccine over a painful vaccine
  • A vaccination is usually followed by a fever for 1-2 days in your child. You can use sponge bath to reduce your child’s temperature. However, if the fever doesn’t go away in 1-2 days, reach out to your pediatrician for advice.
  • Taking some family member or spouse to assist you in vaccinating your child can be helpful. They will help in distracting and comforting your child before, during, and after the shot. Carrying your baby’s favorite toy also helps.
