Vaccination

Hello!

We are wondering about our vaccination scheme for our preterm babies.

That preterm babies have a higher risk to suffer from a invasive infection is a well known problem. To protect this children for example the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Department of Health in GB and the STIKO in Germany recommend to start the vaccination schedule early (for example 8 weeks of live). The vaccinations schemes includes diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b, hepatitis B, poliovirus, and pneumococcal conjugate vaccines.

I would be thankful to hear/read, how your vaccination schedule looks like and what kind of vaccine you are using.

What kind of patient do you observe for the risk for apneas ?

Greetings

Dirk
