Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Vaccination is basically a precaution, so it's only natural then to think whether this precaution is necessary when it is already affected by an illness.
In fact, vaccination is still necessary and remains safe. This is because in addition to functioning to prevent measles itself, measles vaccine can also reduce symptoms. There is a study that found that a group of children who were given the measles vaccine a few days after being diagnosed with measles, had milder symptoms and their condition improved more quickly than those who were not given the measles vaccine. So in the case of your child, our advice is that you still come to give the vaccine to your child.
However, here are some points that need to be ascertained, such as how do you know that what your child is experiencing is measles or not. Because, there are many diseases that appear similar to measles, such as smallpox, Kawasaki disease, Scarlet fever or HFMD. Therefore, if you have not had a chance to have your child checked by a pediatrician, check with him to ascertain his condition through a history and direct examination, and there you can at all confirm about your child's immunization. So, hopefully answering your question.
