Dear TechNet members,
We would like to know the appropriate age for Td vaccine and whether what we are practising is right. As per the manufacturer’s leaflet (Serum Institute of India), Td vaccine is for primary vaccination and revaccination of children older than 7 years. However, in Bhutan, we are giving at 6 years also.
Our immunization schedule for DTP containing and Td vaccine is as follows:
- DTP-HepB-Hib (Pentavalent) at 6, 10 and 14 weeks.
- DTP at 24 months
- Td at 6 and 12 years
- Td at pregnancy
