Your Babys Immunisation

(0 reviews)

Your baby is protected from certain diseases because of the antibodies that are passed on before birth and during breastfeeding. However, this protection is temporary.

Friday, March 10th, 2017

It is extremely important that you discuss your baby’s immunisation schedule with your paediatrician and strictly follow it.

Here are some important points to remember:

Immunisation is the best way of protecting your baby against a number of diseases.

Your paediatrician will follow the recommended vaccines schedule for your baby.

A number of vaccines are now available in combination to reduce the number of shots your baby receives. Ask your paediatrician about these options.


Some vaccines may cause mild reactions or fever. However, there is nothing to worry about as serious side effects are rare. Report any reaction that you notice immediately to your doctor.


Before you leave the hospital, be sure to ask your doctor about the vaccines that are to be given at birth.

Talk to your paediatrician if you have any concerns about your baby’s health.

Keep your baby’s immunisation chart in a safe, convenient place so that you can track it periodically and not miss any of the immunisations.

Comfort your child before, during and after the shots by soothing, cuddling or talking to him or her.

Your doctor will decide if any immunisation needs to be delayed because of your baby’s poor health.

Making sure that your baby receives all the required immunisations at the correct time is a very important step in protecting your baby’s health.
