An 18 month old child comes to you with history of immunization taken only for a single dose of OPV and DPT. What will you give now? (AIIMS May 09)
|A||Re-start the immunization according to age|
|B||Give BCG, Measles, and second doses of OPV and DPT|
|C||Give BCG, Measles and booster of OPV and DPT|
|D||Give Measles and booster doses of OPV and DPT|
Remember as a rule of thumb, whenever a partially immunized child comes to you never restart the regimen. Give all the vaccines that is due for that age. Hence this child should receive BCG, second dose of DPT & OPV and Measles or MMR.
BCG given upto age , but best option B
