  • Pregnant women: as early as possible in the current pregnancy
  • Postpartum women: once during the postpartum period, ideally within 6 weeks after delivery
  • Infants: between 9 and 13 months
  • Children: between 15 and 18 months and, thereafter, every 12 months if blood values are normal, every 6 months if values are low
