MR Vaccine For Children Aged 4 Years?
Hello Uciik, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on recommendations issued by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI), MR immunization is recommended to be given at the age of:
15 months if you have received measles immunization at the age of 9 months or 12 months if you have never gotten measles immunization before 5 years as a booster (additional immunizations) missed, so if based on this recommendation, your child can still be given the first MR immunization even though he is 4 years old.
However, to better determine whether your child's condition is still possible to get the immunization or not, it is necessary to check the history of the disease and your child's current condition, so it is advisable to consult with a pediatrician before deciding to give MR immunizations to your child. .
I hope this helps.
