I would first want to know the age of the child. If the child is 6 months old and due for the first Flu vaccine, it is recommended that Flu and Conjugate Typhoid Vaccine can be co-administered. If the child is older, consult your paediatrician for age-specific recommendation.
Immunization guidelines in India now recommend vaccination against typhoid as early as 6 months. In fact. the safety profile of the vaccine given early has been found to be extremely beneficial in preventing typhoid in children. The new Typhoid Conjugate Vaccine is now being offered for children by most pediatricians. If the child is less than 2 years, he/she will need 2 doses of the vaccine. If the child is more than 2 years old, then 1 dose is sufficient for protection from typhoid.
Hi have you given it as per the mentioned date in vaccination card?
Yes, both the vaccinations are required as per the new Immunization Guidelines. If the child is less than 2 years, he/she will need 2 doses of the vaccine. If the child is more than 2 years old, then 1 dose is sufficient for protection from typhoid.
Yes, it is advisable to get vaccination is done after the child recovers completely from the current infection for which it is being given antibiotics. Once the child is hale and hearty, you can schedule the typhoid conjugate vaccine by consulting your pediatrician.
I would urge you to consult your pediatrician. The previous vaccine could have been a polysaccharide vaccine which has a limited period of protection. I am quite sure the pediatrician will update you on the new Conjugate Vaccine which has better and longer protection.
Yes, two-three vaccines can be given together. In fact, most paediatricians advocate multiple vaccines on a single visit.
Immediately get the new conjugate vaccine done by consulting your doctor. If the child is less than 2 years, he/she will need 2 doses of the vaccine. If the child is more than 2 years old, then 1 dose is sufficient for protection from typhoid.
It is recommended that Conjugate Typhoid Vaccination in children can be done as early as 6 months.
Hygiene, healthy lifestyle, ensuring clean potable water and proper sanitation are key to avoiding typhoid infection. But with the exposure that we encounter in our day to day lives, maintaining most of these factors seem difficult. Hence all preventive measures are important and that's how a single vaccine would go a long way in protecting you and your family members.
