What are the vaccines that could be given to children who have missed their immunization as scheduled? Some children come at 1 year, 2 years and even at 3 years of age without receiving any vaccine or only a few of them. I would like to know what vaccines could be given at various ages for children who have missed required injections of vaccines.

Catch up vaccination schedule under Universal immunisation program in India recommends maximum age limit for beginning a schedule for BCG, Pentavalent, PCV*, Rota virus* as 12 months with subsequent doses with minimum gap as prescribed.

Catch up vaccination with MR and DPT can be done till 5 years and 7 years respectively. So,a child at 11 months completely unimmunized till date is eligible for BCG, Penta 1, IPV 1, OPV1, MR1, PCV1*, Rota 1*, JE1*.

A child completely unimmunised till after 12 months would be eligible for starting the schedule with  MR 1, DPT1, OPV1, JE 1*.
