Immunization In Children 18 Months?
I want to ask, my child is 2 months old again 2 years as long as the baby gets routine immunizations at the pediatrician, after 18 months I immunize at the posyandu near the house to try further immunization, then it is recommended measles before the age of 2 years. But I saw in the immunization book schedule given by the pediatrician that I used to go to, mmr immunization schedule is not measles so what should I do with measles first or mmr?
Hello Widhy Septyani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on recommendations issued by IDAI in 2017, for measles and MMR immunization is recommended as follows:
Measles first immunization is recommended to be carried out at the age of 9 months and given a booster at the age of 18 months and also at the age of 6 or 7 years. MMR immunization is first recommended to be given at the age of 15 months and given a booster at the age of 5 years. your child should have received measles immunization and also the first MMR immunization, where according to the schedule measles immunization should be given first compared to MMR immunization because measles immunization was first recommended when the child was 9 months old, while MMR at 15 months.
To better ensure what immunizations have been given to your child, you should bring your child back to the pediatrician who previously handled your child's immunization to be clearer about what immunizations have been given, and what immunizations should be given to children later. you.
I hope this helps.
