Can A 9 Month Old Baby Not Get Measles Injection?
No measles injection is fine for a 9 month old baby
Thank you for the question.
Measles often has mild symptoms if it occurs in people with good endurance, which is only in the form of fever, skin rashes, watery eyes, coughing, colds, sore throat, weakness, and so on. With proper treatment, measles can often be cured in 1-2 weeks. However, this is not the case in infants, young children, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems (for example, people with HIV, cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, diabetes, and people taking long-term steroid treatment). Measles sufferers from this group are very at risk of experiencing dangerous complications, even deadly. If measles is transmitted to pregnant women, the fetus in the womb can also fall, have fetal defects, die in utero, and experience various other complications.
To prevent the above risks, measles immunization is very important. Obligatory, measles immunization is given when the child enters the age of 9 months. Furthermore, additional immunization doses can be given when the child is aged 18 months, 6-7 years, and so on.
Need to be clarified, what is the reason your child does not get measles immunization even though he has reached 9 months?
If your child does not have a history of severe allergic reactions to the measles vaccine component, if your child does not also have a history of severe immune disorders, and if there is no abstinence from the doctor for your child to undergo measles immunization, you should continue to include it in order to get measles immunization. However, if there are obstacles, or there are still doubts in your mind regarding this immunization, you should consult further with your doctor or pediatrician at the nearest health facility.
I hope this helps.
