Immunization can be done in various health services. One of them is the hospital's children's poly. The government obliges Indonesian citizens to immunize. This is based on diseases that infect many Indonesian citizens. Some of the priority immunizations include hepatitis B (can protect the body from liver damage), polio (polio prevention can prevent paralysis), BCG (can prevent tuberculosis, which is a disease that usually infects the lungs), DPT (can prevent Diphtheria from infecting the respiratory tract). through bacteria, Tetanus and Pertussis is whooping cough that can last a long time, Influenza type B HiB (can protect the body from meningitis, pneumonia and epiglottitis) and measles.
