Vaccinations at three months

If you have decided to have your baby vaccinated, he or she should receive boosters during this month.

At about ten weeks, your baby should be immunised for a second time against:
  • Polio (OPV)
  • Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (DPT)
  • Hib
  • Hepatitis B (Hep B)

Your baby may have a raised temperature or feel unwell after immunisation. Sponging with lukewarm water or giving a paracetamol syrup for fever may help. A red, swollen patch may appear around an injection site. This should subside within a few weeks.
