I missed the DTP (DTwP / DTaP) Vaccine and my child is above 5 year .. as per the guidelines provided on VaccineBox it stated this should not be given if the child is 7 or above years old.
Can you please guide me
Consult your child’s doctor if you have missed the DTP vaccine altogether. Your child can be given the vaccine now also as the age is less than 7 years. In case of incomplete vaccination, follow the catch up or missed doses guideline, primary doses of vaccine can be given till 1 year of age. Ist Booster dose can be given up to 4 years and 2nd Booster dose can be given before 7 years of age only.
