Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

1. By one year of age, a child should have received birth vaccines like BCG (bacilli Calmette-Guerin), polio drops. Then three monthly shots of DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus), Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b), polio injection and hepatitis B.

2. By nine months measles vaccine should be given.

3. Optional vaccines include rotavirus, pnemococcal and influenza vaccines.

You have not mentioned which vaccines are pending. Some places have specific recommendations. 1 to 5 years MMR (mumps, measles, and rubella), chickenpox and hepatitis A vaccines along with booster doses of DPT, Hib, polio would be there. It is recommended that you at least complete the vaccines required up to one year of age, if not given already.
