Q.

Comprehensive immunisation schedule

Hi Doc

Please will you advise where I can obtain a comprehensive immunisation schedule for my baby. I am told that immunisation previously started at 6 weeks, but this has changed and it now starts at 8 weeks?

I also want details of the optional and recommended vaccines that are availble in the private sector. I have done internet searches, but can' t find much information. I' m surprised that the manufacturers of the vaccines have not developed an easy to follow chart?

Many thanks for your help.

I agree with you, it is really difficult to find simple information on an immunisation schedule for infants in SA. Try www.sanofipasteur.co.za
