Have Never Had A Measles Immunization Until The Age Of 17?
I want to ask if I haven’t been immunized against measles since I was young until now I’m 17 years old can I still get measles shots ?? If you can’t, what is the solution
Hello, good afternoon Kevincrish ..
Immunization is an effort to improve a person's immune system, so that it is hoped that it can prevent the spread of an infectious disease. Immunization is carried out by inserting a substance called a vaccine into the body. Measles immunization is available in the form of Vasin MR (Measles-Rubella). The measles vaccine works to prevent measles, while the rubella vaccine prevents rubella (German measles). This MR immunization is an immunization that is also recommended for adults, especially if the person has never had this vaccine in childhood. Thus, you can still get this immunization. In addition to MR immunization, hepatitis B immunization, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis, HPV, Varicella (Chickenpox), etc. are also recommended for adults.
That's all, hope it helps.
