How Many Pauses Or How Many Times A 9 Month Old Baby Is Given The Measles Vaccine?
Afternoon, I want to ask how many times a good baby is given measles vaccine or measles immunization, if my child has just had measles immunization at the age of 9 months 3 days. Usually there is a note in the book, but it’s not there. Is the immunization complete and what is the cause after the measles immunization for the baby? Sorry, thank you in advance.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Measles immunization is given to create active protection against the measles virus. This disease, if it occurs in people with good endurance, may be mild, because it only causes fever, cough, runny nose, inflammation of the conjunctiva, skin rashes, joint pain, and other complaints that can improve within 1-2 weeks. However, if it occurs in infants or people with weak immune systems, this disease can be fatal, even lead to death. Not only that, if the infection is transmitted to pregnant women, it is prone to miscarriage, fetal defects, premature labor, until the fetus dies in the womb.
Measles immunization can be given in several types, namely measles immunization only, MR immunization (which is useful in preventing measles and rubella), and MMR immunization (which is useful in preventing measles, rubella and mumps). This immunization schedule can also be different. If you mean just measles immunization, then this immunization is normally given when the baby is 9 months old, then continued when the child is 18 months and 5-7 years old. If your baby gets the MMR or MR vaccine, then this advanced vaccine can be given at the age of 15 months. As an adult, re-measles vaccine can also be given to provide more optimal protection.
With regard to your question, not yet having a history of measles immunization in your baby's health status book can be caused by many factors, for example because it has not been given measles immunization, or has been given but has been forgotten. Often, after measles immunization, no severe side effects appear. However, some babies may experience fever, swelling and pain in the injection site, weakness, nausea, vomiting, muscle and joint pain, often drowsiness, or many other complaints. However, it is not enough to ascertain whether the baby has received measles immunization by observing these signs alone. You need to reconfirm this by asking directly to the health facility where your child is undergoing the immunization.
