Vaccines For Children Aged 4 Years?
Children aged 4 years according to the recommendation of the vaccine IDAI, except MMR u0026amp; JE.
Hello Elli, Thank you for the question.
Immunization is an infectious disease prevention program by administering a vaccine that triggers the formation of immune substances so that a person becomes immune to a disease. The immunization program in Indonesia (routine routine immunization) consists of basic immunization and advanced immunization.
Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccines are vaccines aimed at providing immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. This immunization is not included in mandatory immunization but is highly recommended considering the burden of the disease that can be caused. This immunization can be given as an alternative to measles vaccine. As an alternative to the usual measles vaccine, MMR vaccine or MR vaccine (measles and rubella) can be given.
Japanese encephalitis (JE) is inflammation of the brain caused by a virus that is transmitted through the bite of a culex mosquito. This disease causes symptoms of fever, neck stiffness, convulsions, headaches, nausea, vomiting, paralysis, and loss of consciousness. JE vaccine is given in two doses at 28-day intervals. JE vaccine is recommended for those who live in endemic countries, one of which is Indonesia. However, the implementation of JE vaccines has not been resolved to date. This vaccine has been included in the schedule for immunizing the Indonesian Pediatric Association (IDAI) but has not been required. This vaccine is given at the age of 12 months in endemic areas or tourists who will travel to endemic areas. The latest program from the Ministry of Health is to campaign for the delivery of this vaccine in 9 cities in Bali targeting children aged 9 months to less than 15 years. It is planned that this JE vaccine will be included in routine immunizations.
Just like the JE vaccine, Dengue vaccine has been included in the IDAI immunization schedule but has not been required. Dengue vaccine is given to provide immunity against Dengue virus infection which causes Dengue fever / dengue fever. This vaccine is given 3 times at 6-month intervals, and given to children aged 9 years to 16 years.
Please consult with your child's specialist doctor about administering these vaccines by bringing your child's immunization book so your doctor can more easily find out what vaccines have been given to your child. Feel free to ask your doctor if you have further questions.
I hope this helps.
