Measles And Influenza Immunization In Infants Aged 10 Months?
Is it safe for the baby to immunize in public health services such as polindes? And can my baby have influenza immunization at the age of 10 months?
Hello Endah, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, to expand the coverage of immunization, health service centers such as Polindes, Posyandu, Poskesdes, Puskesmas, Puskesmas helper, there are also those who can serve immunizations for infants and children. The government will provide the necessary vaccinations and vaccine storage facilities to ensure vaccine quality remains good. You can ask the Polindes back in your area if the Polindes really does provide immunizations for children. If the Polindes does not serve child immunization, you can look for Posyandu or Puskesmas that serve child immunization.
Measles immunization is recommended for children aged 9 months. However, the government is currently running an MR (measles and rubella) vaccination program for children over 9 months, so you can ask for the availability of the MR vaccine at the health service center in your area so that children get protection against measles and rubella.
Influenza immunization is recommended for children over 6 months and repeated once a year. The first influenza injection for children under 9 years was given 2 times with a minimum spacing of 4 weeks. At the age of 10 months your child must have been able to get influenza immunization. If this is your child's first immunization, then the child will get 2 injections. Next year and the following years, the child will only get one injection. Because influenza immunization does not include immunizations that are routinely given, you need to ask about the availability of this immunization at the health service center in your area.
