Yes, you may replace hexaxim with easysix vaccine for the next 2 doses of primary vaccination. Easy six or any other regular dtwp containing vaccines are proffered over highly publicized painless vaccines for providing better immunity to the baby.
Baby might experience some pain and it is perfectly normal for her to cry for hours following the vaccination. You may give over the counter paracetamol like crocin (kids) for pain relief. Please ask the dosage of paracetamol from doctor as this is given according to weight of baby.
No, there is no problem in giving Rotavirus and pneumococcal vaccine on a later date if missed the due date. Please follow the Latest and revised Vaccination Schedule 2019 in future and don’t miss the vaccination dates. You may also refer to catch up guidelines given below the chart.
