Baby Care & Vaccinations Overview

The joy of cuddling your newborn baby girl or boy for the very first time and looking down with a heart bursting with love, you vow to protect this little bundle of joy.

Protection comes in many forms - one of which is HEALTH PROTECTION and VACCINATION is the best way forward to protect your newborn against various diseases.

Vaccination stimulates our immune system to produce the right antibodies to fight against life threatening diseases like polio, tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough etc. Thanks to vaccination programmes, we have managed to completely eradicate smallpox and recently even polio. Other dreaded diseases like Rota virus/diarrhea, Meningitis and Typhoid have drastically reduced in our community due to regular vaccinations.

Holy Family Hospital is synonymous with Community. Our Mission Statement is “dedicated to providing excellence in patient care and treatment and to serve the needs of the community, irrespective of caste, creed or economic status”. HFH is and always has been community oriented and keeping “our community” in mind we are happy to announce our STAR BABY campaign.

STAR BABY is a vaccination programme from birth to year 1 that gives your baby a head start in health protection. It has been designed to give complete immunization and includes consultations with our HFH doctors for close monitoring of your baby’s growth and development. The package offers a priority service (no more queues). You not only will be saving on highly priced vaccines, but will have the special service of it being administered by skilled and experienced paediatricians.

Immunization Clinic

The immunization clinic runs on the 3rd floor in the postnatal ward of Holy Family Hospital.

All babies delivered in the hospital are immunized with the vaccines recommended to be given at birth, i.e., BCG, OPV, and Hepatitis B These vaccines protects them from getting vaccine preventable diseases.

Later on, as per the Immunization schedule, the recommended vaccines are available in the HFH pharmacy and trained staff is available in the Immunization clinic to give the vaccination.

All babies are given an updated Immunization card which contains information about the schedule of vaccination and the due date of same is written on the card by the duty doctors.

On the given date of the vaccination, babies are brought to the hospital on 2nd floor OPD where vaccine which is due is prescribed by the OPD consultant. Then the vaccine is purchased from the pharmacy and babies are referred to 3rd floor Immunization clinic for vaccination. Post vaccination care is advised by the OPD consultants.
