Babies receive their first immunization shortly after they are born and then need to be taken to the clinic for additional injections later – luckily this is all written in the Road to Health Booklet and new parents just need to refer to it in order to keep track of the schedule. 

 

For example: 

At birth                BCG and polio

6 weeks               DPT Polio, Hib and Hepatitis B

10 weeks             DPT Polio, Hib and Hepatitis B

14 weeks             DPT Polio, Hib and Hepatitis B

9 months             Measles

18 months           DPT, polio and measles

5 years                 DPT, polio
