Janine’s Immunization

Today, Janine turns 15 month old and she's scheduled to have her immunization.

She was given 2 vaccines: DPT2 and OPV 2.
DPT combines vaccines against three types of diseases: pertussis, diphtheria, and tetanus.
OPV is for protection against polio. It may be taken orally or through injection.

For first time moms, don’t worry if your baby is experiencing low-grade fever because it’s normal for some babies to experience such reaction after the injection. You can give your baby a paracetamol (drops) to alleviate her/his mild/moderate fever.
