, I want to ask my daughter, 4 years and 21 days old, the first MR immunization in 2017 (during the government program), is MR immunization allowed now?

1 Answer:

Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the discomfort you feel.


MR immunization is a combination of measles vaccine (measles [M]) and rubella that is useful for protection against rubella measles. Both diseases need to be prevented because of the risk of causing life-threatening complications / complications. For example, measles can cause complications of pneumonia (inflammation of the lungs), diarrhea, inflammation of the brain (encephalitis), to death. Meanwhile, rubella although generally only causes mild illness in children, but can infect pregnant women who are at risk of causing miscarriage or disability in babies born.


In August-September 2017, the Indonesian Ministry of Health and the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI) held a free MR immunization program at educational facilities and public health services in Java. The same program was also carried out outside Java in August-September 2018. The target of MR immunization is for all children aged 9 months to less than 15 years during the immunization campaign.


Meanwhile, according to the child's immunization schedule recommended by IDAI in 2017, the first dose of MR vaccine (or MMR to prevent measles, rubella and mumps) can be started from the age of 15 months. If the first dose is not given at the age of 15 months, catch-up immunization can still be done if there are no contraindications. Furthermore, the MR / MMR vaccine booster dose can be given at the age of 5 years.


So, because your child has received the first dose of MR vaccine when he was around 2 years old in 2017, a booster dose of MR vaccine can be given when your child turns 5 years later. Do not hesitate to consult with your doctor or pediatrician about the eligibility of your child's health condition to obtain the next MR vaccine.
