Ideally, the first dose of what vaccine is given at birth?

  1. IPV
  2. Hib
  3. DTaP
  4. hepatitis B
Number 4 is correct.
Rationale: Hepatitis B is the only vaccine the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CBC) typically recommends be administered at birth. The second dose is usually administered 1 – 2 months after the first dose. IPV, Hib, and DTaP series start at 2 months of age.
