1. The IAP endorses the continued use of whole cell pertussis vaccine because of its proven efficacy and safety.Acellular pertussis vaccines may undoubtedly have fewer side-effects (like fever, local reactions at injection site and irritability), but this minor advantage does not justify the inordinate cost involved in the routine use of this vaccine..
2. If the mother is known to be HBsAg negative, HB vaccine can be given along with DTP at 6, 10, 14 weeks/ 6 months. If the mother's HBsAg status is not known, it is advisable to start vaccination soon after birth to prevent perinatal transmission of the disease. If the mother is HBsAg positive (and especially HBeAg positive) , the baby should be given Hepatitis B Immune Globulin (HBIG) within 24 hours of birth, along with HB vaccine.
3.Varicella, Hepatitis A and Pneumococcal Conjugate vaccines should be offered only after one to one discussion with parents.Also refer to the individual vaccines notes for ecommendations.
From the very begining of the pregnancy, I noticed a difference in the way everything is handled in Aman Hospital. Meeting Dr Saurabh can only be described as meeting a successful and yet down to earth person.
Was in delimna, where to have my baby. Frankly shopped a lot. My wife was a nervous wreck, specially with the experience of the first baby. What convinced us was the team of gynecologists and pediatricians under one roof.
Thankfully landed by luck one night in emergency at Aman hospital when her gynac was out of station. Best part was Dr Saurabh stay next door. I delivered my baby in half an hour!! Baby went to the NICU because of respiratory problems.
