Pediatrics/Advice for my Baby Vaccine Schedule


Dear Sir,

My baby birth date is 14-02-2013.

Our Schedule
BCG on 06-03-2013 & 0 - Polio.
Pentavac PFS & Rotarix & OPV - 1 on 28-03-2013.
IPV - 1 on 13-04-2013.

Now doctor has given Pentaxin & Rotarix on 26-04-2013.

Now my question is that, according to me Pentaxin doesnt have Hep-B, so what should we do for Hep-B.
Should we go for for IPV - 2.

I think schedule has disturb little bit.

Please help us & give the proper schedule for my baby.

Now Hi
You can download latest schedule from you will find a link in downloads section.
The bcg in your case should have been given with hep B… and if it is not given your pentavac had hep B 1… pentaxim covered IPV 2 but hepB2 needs to be taken care off… it is must to have at least 3 weeks and preferably 4 weeks gap between two vaccination days… in your case it appears to be 15 days… this could have been avoided if the child gets vaccinations as mentioned in plan A of immunisation schedule at my site. Now you may need to take pentaxim and hepB in next visit…
Its better to get many vaccinations on same day than making them spaced… almost all vaccines are safe.
Also see US vaccination program at my site.
