Good night. I want to ask, my child is 14 years old. I was diagnosed with ocular hypertension and now it is normal. And have been immunized against measles at 9 months, and at the age of 3 years got measles. Now there is a mandatory measles and rubella immunization program. Does my child still need to take the immunization? And will there be any side effects arising from the immunization? Thanks.

1 Answer:

Hello Mr / Mrs Ngatimin,

The mandatory immunization program carried out by the government does not look at previous immunization history. Whether you have been immunized or not before, this immunization should still be done considering measles and rubella are diseases that can cause serious complications but can be prevented. It doesn't matter if you have immunized beforehand. Ocular hypertension is not one of the contraindications to measles or rubella vaccines. Contraindications for measles and rubella vaccines include:

Known severe allergic reactions to vaccines or vaccine components Pregnancy Known to have immune disorders, for example taking antisuppressant drugs, severely immunocompromised HIV, undergoing chemotherapy, etc.

So generally your child can get this vaccine safely. If there are other health problems, you can consult your doctor first before getting the vaccine.

Regards,

dr. Mega
