flexible enough.However, immunization may be less effective if administrated again before the expiration of thirty days after the primary inoculation.If your child has missed one of repeated vaccinations do not need to start all over again.Just make vaccination, if no time has not been missed.Any vaccine may be administered simultaneously, but in different places, and thus does not increase the risk of vaccine reactions and some reduced efficiency.

Firstly, all pregnant women should be tested for hepatitis B. If the test result was positive, the child of the woman has to go right after the birth, or, in extreme cases, in the first twenty-four hours as a passive immunization against hepatitis B immunoglobulin,and active, the vaccine against hepatitis B. These children need to be made all the necessary vaccinations against hepatitis B in the age of one month, and then every six months, after which should be made child's blood test to determine whether he is a carrier of hepatitis B virus.

If the mother during pregnancy has negative hepatitis B, the first option - to immunize a child is usually recommended, at birth, a month and six months.The second option - to discuss with your doctor whether the child is at risk

or family of hepatitis B include before deciding whether to carry out the vaccination.If the risk to the child or family is not high, the vaccine can be administered at an older age, when the risk of infection will increase for a child.Do not forget that when the child grows, the importance of immunization are usually overlooked, so you need to remind yourself of vaccination.
