Optional vaccines: a critical appraisal
The national immunisation schedule includes BCG, DPT, oral polio and measles vaccines, besides DT and TT. Many more vaccines are now freely available in the country. The immunisation committee of the Indian Academy of Paediatrics has considered most of these vaccines ‘optional’ and not included them in the national immunisation schedule. However, there is no clarity about who should exercise this option: the physician or the parents.
There are currently no refbacks.
