can we delay administration of 6 weeks vaccination course of Easysix, OPV & PCV-1 by a week? Secondly, need we give OPV at 6 week? Govt. centers prescribe giving this. But pvt. hospitals dont put in their chart to administer OPV at 6weeks. Please advise.
It is OK to delay the vaccination by 1 week in case of unavailability of vaccines or other personal reasons. OPV is not at all recommended now for primary vaccination according to latest and revised vaccination schedule 2019.
See footnotes of schedule.
Injectable Polio vaccine has to be given now for all primary doses.
