Hello Sugeng, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) should also get good protection from infectious diseases and vaccination is the most effective way to prevent certain infections. CHD itself is also not a contraindication to administering live vaccines such as the MR vaccine. However, it should be noted the following:
If the CHD suffered by your child is also related to other congenital diseases that cause weakening of the immune system, then live vaccines should not be done. If there is an operation plan to repair CHD or the child has just been operated on, the vaccine plan must also be adjusted to the operation plan. In this condition, you should consult directly with your pediatrician for planning the vaccine. We recommend that you consult directly with the Pediatrician so that a more complete evaluation of the CHD suffered by your child and a good immunization schedule for your child is recommended.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
