Measles And Rubella?
Hay my sister Ad A little leak in her heart, has she been injected with measles and rubella?
The existence of abnormalities in the child's heart such as a heart leak can be a congenital heart disease (CHD) where this condition is a condition that needs to be considered if you are going to take medical actions such as giving vaccines.
Measles and rubella vaccines or MR vaccine are given to children aged 9 months to less than 15 years during the MR immunization campaign or given when children are 9 months, 18 months old and in grade 1 SD. In general, measles and rubella vaccines are safe and rarely cause significant side effects, but in special conditions such as disorders such as autoimmune disorders, CHD, allergies or other contra indications for measles and rubella vaccines such as:
Have a severe allergy to gelatin or neomycin
Suffering from immune disorders or malignancy
Are receiving therapy or medication that suppresses the immune system
The child has a fever
The child has just had another live vaccine in the last 4 weeks
For this reason, you should first check with your sister at a pediatrician to assess her condition and ensure the indication for vaccine administration whether it can be done or not.
