3 Months Checkup and Vaccinations

Today our LO is scheduled for an appointment at the polyclinic for her 3 month screening and vaccinations. After the physical check by the doctor, he approved of her development. Good job!

    Injection on the thigh. Medisave $150.
    The infection causes lung infection, inflammation of the membrane or lining that protects the brain, and ear infection. Read more on HPB website.
  • 5-in-1 Vaccine (Dose 1)
    Injection on the thigh. FREE.
    The 5-in-1 injection combines vaccines against Diphtheria/Pertussis/Tetanus (DPT), Polio and Haemophilus Influenzae type B (Hib) in 1 injection. Read more on HPB website.

Our little angel cried during the injections. But brave little her stopped and calmed down within a minute after each injection. We were proud of her. Well done darling.

We have to look out for any case of fever from the injection. Hopefully she's strong enough to combat the side effect. A syrup paracetamol and syringe is given to us in case of fever.

Her next appointment is a month later. One injection and one oral vaccination.
