Vaccination at 3 months

When a baby reaches three months of age, doctors strongly recommend being vaccinated against certain infectious diseases that may pose a threat to the life of the child.

What vaccinations need to be done according to plan is described in the National Calendar.

Certain modifications and changes are periodically made to it, which are directly dependent on the epidemiological situation in the country and the availability of funds for the purchase of vaccines.

Mom is holding the baby while he is being given a shot.The optimal solution is to find out from the pediatrician what vaccinations are given to a child at the age of three months.

DPT is a fairly serious vaccination that a child will have to reach the age of three months.

Just make four times a vaccination with an interval of one month.

DTP is injected intramuscularly in the leg or thigh of a baby.

If the mother chooses a different method of introducing DTP into the baby’s body, then the reaction and intake in the body will be slower.

And this means that it will not protect the future baby from three rather serious diseases: whooping cough, tetanus, and diphtheria.

DPT vaccine is produced in different countries, from which the composition and action may differ. In addition, there are imported analogues of DTP, which are used in private clinics.

Infanrix is ​​a foreign analogue of British-made DPT. After this vaccination will have the same effects as after standard DTP, although most often the child tolerates the vaccine more restrained. What is the reason? With the composition.

If in standard DTP there are whole killed sticks of whooping cough, then in the import analog there are only three main antigens that are not stabilized by toxic constituents, as is done with the domestic one.

Another alternative is the Pentaxim vaccine. This drug will protect not only from the above three diseases, but also from such ills as polio and hemophilic infection.

As a rule, the reaction in children to such an inoculation is rather light and is transferred much more easily. But this injection can be done only in private clinics.

Polio vaccination

A doctor makes a shot in the legPoliomyelitis is an acute infectious disease, children's cerebrospinal paralysis.

Polio often occurs in a latent form, which complicates its detection.

The disease is rare today, especially in Eastern European countries.

Polio is quite common in South Asia and Nigeria.

After almost universal vaccination in the 50s of the last century, poliomyelitis was practically eradicated in Europe, however, isolated cases still occur.

The source of infection is a carrier of the virus or a sick person. The most dangerous carriers are hidden or abortive forms.

Polio is transmitted through dirty hands, food, toys, as well as airborne droplets.

Since poliomyelitis is considered a dangerous infection, vaccination is always relevant, although due to the fact that infection is rare in our time, vaccination is optional.

Reaction and complications: differences

It is very important to know the differences that characterize the body's response after vaccination, and the complications of vaccination.

If you properly prepare the child, then no complications after the procedure will be terrible for the baby.

And the best preparation - low load on the body of the baby.

One day before vaccination it is worthwhile to slightly reduce the amount of food, and also to exclude contact with other people and the possibility of hypothermia and overheating.

A contraindication to vaccination is considered acute respiratory viral infections, prematurity, meningitis, chickenpox, a condition after a blood transfusion.

In this case, the therapist will certainly transfer this medical procedure to another day.

However, even without contraindications, the reaction may be different: temperature, decreased appetite, some lethargy.

As for the complications after the procedure, they are of a different nature. This is a high temperature (above 40), rash, suppuration, convulsions. In such a situation, medical assistance will be mandatory.
