1.       Diphtheria and Tetanus - four or more properly spaced doses (may be given as DPT), with the last dose administered on or after fourth birthday.

 

2.       Polio - three or more properly spaced doses of Polio vaccine.

 

3.       Measles - two properly spaced doses (preferably MMR) with the first dose administered at 12 month of age or older.
