    Suggest vaccinations for a child

default
Posted on Fri, 11 Aug 2017 in Child Health
Question: Hi Doctor,

I need to give vaccinations to my daughter:

1 DTWP/ DTAP BOOSTER
2 OPV/OPV (4th) + IPVBOOSTER
3 HiB booster
4 Typhoid

Can you suggest which of the above injections are important which we always need to provide to child. The idea is i do not want to give excessive vaccination to my daughter which is generally not required and i am trying to filter out those injections out of the exhaustive list provided by the hospital.

Please advise.

Brief Answer:
The typhoid vaccine is an optional one

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The following are essential vaccines:
1 DTWP/ DTAP BOOSTER
2 OPV/OPV (4th) + IPVBOOSTER
3 HiB booster

whereas Typhoid vaccine is an optional one.
The first three need to be given whereas it is upon your choice whether you want to give the typhoid vaccine to your child.

Let me know if I could help further.
