          Toddler is a general term for children aged 1-3 years (toddler) and preschool children (3-5 years). When the child is toddlers, begin to be given further immunization or booster immunization. Advanced immunization is a repeat of basic immunization to maintain the level of immunity and to extend the optimal protection period from further immunization and this is only obtained if the child has received complete basic immunization. About 1.5 million children in the world die each year because of diseases that can be prevented by immunization.
