Distance Between Rubella And Measles Immunization?
Hello Siska, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Measles immunization and MR immunization (mumps and rubella) are both live immunizations (derived from live, attenuated viruses). In general, the measles vaccine is given when the baby is 9 months old. If the baby has received the measles vaccine, it is recommended that the MR vaccine be administered at the age of 15 months. However, considering the existence of the MR immunization program from the government, babies who have just received measles vaccination can still receive MR vaccination, but must be at least 4 weeks apart from the measles vaccine.
If your child is immunized against measles in June, it is now more than 4 weeks from the measles immunization that your child can receive the MR vaccine at any time. Make sure you bring your child health card when you take your child for immunization so that the immunization records can be completed.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
