With normalcy in the healthcare services around the country, doctors are recommending parents to re-start their children’s vaccination schedules in order to keep them safe from diseases. It becomes imperative to control and prevent children from other diseases as coronavirus continues to spread.
The catch-up vaccination provides optimal protection against disease as quickly as possible by completing a person’s vaccination schedule in the shortest and most effective manner. Most vaccines prevent one from diseases for the entire life, so if you miss some vaccine, it can still be given.
There is no time for catch-up vaccination, you can restart anytime you want. Right now 30 per cent of catch-up vaccination cases have been seen in OPD.
So, if your child missed a vaccination dose due to the pandemic, now is the time.
