Hello Erlicha,


Measles immunization is useful for preventing measles and even if you get measles, the symptoms will be much lighter than those who are not immunized. According to the schedule, measles immunization is given at the age of 9 months. If the measles immunization is given too late, then a catch-up immunization can be done.


If your child is 9-12 months old, measles immunization can be given at any time during a visit to the doctor or health center. Meanwhile, if the child is more than 1 year old, the child will be given MMR immunization (immunization to prevent measles, rubella, and mumps).


You should still take your child to be immunized after they don't have a fever. If the child has a fever for more than 3 days, you should check with the doctor first so they can get treatment and plan for the next immunization schedule. You don't have to worry. Immunization that is given late is still better than not getting immunized.
