Baby Vaccine Scheduler To Keep Track of Your Child's Immunization

Baby Vaccine Scheduler To Keep Track of Your Child's Immunization

Newborn and infants are among the immunocompromised population. This means that compared to others, they are more vulnerable to infections that might lead to death or long-term complications. The good news is, many diseases, such as hepatitis B, pneumonia, and measles, are vaccine-preventable. In general, the child receives majority of these vaccines within their first year of life. That’s why it’s crucial for parents to keep track of their child’s pediatric vaccination schedule.

If you’re worried about your child missing a shot, you can take advantage of our Baby Vaccine Scheduler. Here’s everything you need to know about this tool.

Reminders When Using the Scheduler

The Baby Vaccine Scheduler is meant to keep track of a child’s pediatric vaccination schedule. However, our panel of experts would like to remind parents that:

The immunization schedule may vary.

What we have in the tool are suggested schedules. Hence, your baby may receive a particular shot at a date different from what’s in the scheduler.

Basically, the schedule depends on your child’s health and vaccine availability.

The tool is based on the immunization schedule in the Philippines.

The schedule is based on the pediatric immunization schedule in the Philippines. Don’t be surprised if you see a different schedule online. Chances are, those are based on another country’s immunization program.

Don’t panic if your baby misses a dose.

If the tool sends a reminder that your child missed a dose, don’t panic.

Your child doesn’t need to “start over.” They simply need to catch up. Talk to their pediatrician about the new schedule.

Your child’s pediatrician may recommend additional vaccines.

The list of vaccines in the tool is not exhaustive. That means your child may receive other vaccines depending on the recommendations made by their pediatrician.

For instance, your child may receive vaccines for chickenpox, COVID-19, or Japanese encephalitis.

Vaccines are safe and effective.

Finally, experts would like to reiterate that vaccines are safe and effective in preventing some diseases and their complications. The side effects are often temporary and self-limiting. Worried about your child’s immunization? Don’t hesitate to talk to your child’s doctor.
