All you need to know about your baby’s Immunization- this will help you...
6th month vaccine is Hep-b and OPV and these are not optional..
swine flu vaccine is indicated in
Babies above 6 months to 5 years.. Children may need an additional dose after 4 weeks after the First Dose.
Please note – The vaccine should be of the current year, you can see the year 2016-2017 printed on the carton, as every year scientists create new vaccines according to the strains prevalent in the current year.
