Now, my toddler’s age 17 months. I wish to vaccinate [A.] (DTP B1+ IPV B1+ Hib B1) & JE-2 in one visit at 17 months AND [B.] OPV Booster at 21/ 23 months (3 Primary doses of OPV given at 6, 10 and 14 weeks of age). I got puzzled with (DTP B1+ IPV B1+ Hib B1), JE-2 & OPV Booster. 1.Please suggest/modify the schedule in a single visit/two visits, if required.
2. Is it mendatory to give IPV Booster and OPV Booster in one visit?
3. Any wrong, If there is any gap of 4/6 months between IPV Booster and OPV Booster?
4. Can JE-2 vaccine be given at 21/23 months (JE-1 was given at 9 months)?
JE vaccine can be given with routine vaccination. So, 17 month visit can have DTP B1+ IPV B1+ Hib B1 & JE-2.
It is not mandatory to give IPV and OPV in one visit. Nothing is wrong in having more gap. Minimum gap should be 4 weeks between 2 doses of polio vaccine.
As per recommended polio vaccination schedule containing both IPV and OPV, Total of 4 doses should be there. If your baby is already given 3 primary doses of OPV, now only 1 dose of IPV can be given. When your baby turns 4 years, then give one more dose of OPV.
