Sure Shots: Most Important Vaccination for Infants

Print Friendly

By Megha

Infants are born with passive immunity inherited from their moms, but have a weak immune system that makes them vulnerable to infections. Vaccines give babies the protection they need from potentially fatal conditions. In India mandatory vaccines for children include:

  • BCG
  • Oral polio vaccine
  • DPT
  • Hepatitis B
  • Measles
  • MMR

Some voluntary vaccines include the

  • Rotavirus to prevent diarrhoea.
  • Pneumococcal to prevent against pneumonia and meningitis.

Consult your paediatrician to decide if your child needs these additional vaccines.

    Vaccines are very important for children and parents must keep track of the schedule as it protects your child against a range of serious and potentially fatal diseases. With busy schedules and multiple tasks at hand, it becomes extremely difficult to monitor immunizations & their dates.

    To overcome this problem, I came across a simple vaccination app, VacciTrack, that helps to keep track of your child’s immunization schedule till the age of 10. It gives reminder before the day of vaccination and a full chart along with missed & upcoming vaccines. Moreover, one can also make changes to the schedule as per doctor’s recommendations.

    Have a look –
