D.T. Polio - Definition


Definition


D.T. Polio is a triple vaccine which protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and poliomyelitis. These are three very dangerous illnesses, even fatal in their virulent form, and thus this triple vaccine is obligatory for all children in France. Diphtheria and tetanus are bacterial in origin, while poliomyelitis is caused by a virus. The French vaccinal program begins with three injections, during the second, third and fourth months after birth, then a booster is done between 16 and 18 months. For these four injections, there are types of vaccines in which immunization is also given for whooping cough, haemophilus influenzae, and Hepatitis B. Later, boosters for D.T. Polio are administered around the age of six, between 11 and 13 years of age, between 16 and 18 years, then every following 10 years throughout adult life. The establishment of this obligatory vaccine has permitted an almost complete eradication of these diseases.
