We updated the HIB (Haemophilus influenzae type b) Rules. After reading the rules copied below the following facts are true.

A child above 15 months has three ways of being compliant. Or he got 2 shots before 12 months and 1 shot after twelve months. Or he got two shot after twelve months. or he got one shot after 15 months. This shot is only required until the age of five.

So we created the following rules (Pictured Below).

In the first year after 6 weeks only the first and second shots are valid.

Between 12 and 14 months the first shot is valid as 2 [in the first year]. After 15 months any shot completes the required 3 shots.

 

 

 

In the top part that you need to setup you need to set it up like in the following picture.

 

 

 

9. Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccine. (Minimum age: 6 weeks)

a. Children starting the series on time should receive Hib vaccine at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months and at 12 through 15 months. Children older than 15 months must get caught up according to the ACIP catch-upschedule. The final dose must be received on or after 12 months.

b. If 2 doses of vaccine were received before age 12 months, only 3 doses are required with dose 3 at 12 through 15 months and at least 8 weeks after dose 2.

c. If dose 1 was received at age 12 through 14 months, only 2 doses are required with dose 2 at least 8 weeks after dose 1.

d. If dose 1 was received at 15 months or older, only 1 dose is required.

e. Hib vaccine is not required for children 5 years or older.
