Newborn Care Part 4: Newborn Vaccinations - Kids Clinic

Newborn Care Part 4: Newborn Vaccinations

When you have a baby, there are so many things you need to take care of, especially ensuring that your newborn has all the correct vaccinations. In this article, our paediatrician Dr Wendy, will be sharing with you all the different types of newborn vaccinations and how they protect your baby.

Compulsory Vaccinations

The National Immunisation Schedule in Singapore included all the compulsory vaccinations all children must have from birth to 18 months.


The next batch of compulsory vaccinations is usually given when the child is 11 years old.

 

Recommended Vaccinations

In addition to the compulsory vaccinations, these are the highly recommended vaccinations:

 

1. Rotavirus Vaccination

This is an oral vaccination and is typically administered in 2-3 doses. The vaccine is given before your child turns 6 months old. This vaccine protects against gastroenteritis which is one of the most common causes of diarrhea and vomiting in babies.

 

 

2. Chickenpox Vaccination

The chickenpox vaccination or varicella vaccination is administered after your child turns 1 yeard old. For maximum protection, Dr Wendy recommends getting 2 doses of the vaccine, 3 months apart.

 

 

3. Influenza Vaccination

Influenza infections are quite rampant in children these days. Therefore, the influenza vaccination is highly recommended.

Be sure to make an appointment with our doctors today to have your child well protected. To find out more about the vaccinations we offer, visit Immunisations and Vaccinations. Stay tuned for our next video where our PD will be sharing about post-vaccination reactions.
