Give diphtheria toxoid booster

Nothing is required to be done
Ans. D. Nothing is required to be done
As per the national immunization protocol, each child receives DPT booster at 16-24
months, and then at 5 years. now as the child in the MCQ is 3 years old and is immunized to date, the child must have received the DPT booster injection just within the last 2 years. hence the child is protected and probably no added immune-prevention or vaccination is recommended.
