Three question marks

Vaccine FAQ

  1. What should I do if I forgot to go back to the nurse for the next dose?
    If you realize that you have missed a vaccination, take your child to the clinic as soon as possible.

  2. Does my child need MR vaccine if she already suffered from measles?
    It is not always easy to recognize measles. To be safe, take your child for vaccination even if you think she may already have had measles.

  3. What should I do if I have lost my daughter’s vaccination record?
    Go to the nurse or health centre where your daughter received her vaccinations and ask for a new card. If the nurse has recorded your daughter’s vaccination, she may certify which ones were given and enter them in the new vaccination card.

  4. What should I do if I suspect my child has measles?
    If you suspect that your child has measles, you must take her to a nurse or doctor for examination. Avoid contact with other children, particularly with infants who have not yet been vaccinated.

  5. What should I do if my child is already one year old and has not received the measles vaccine?
    There is no age limit for measles vaccine. If your child is more than 12 months old and has not yet received the 1st dose of measles vaccine, you should take her to a health center for vaccination.

  6. Should my child get vaccinated if he/she is sick?
    Ask the doctor or nurse. If your doctor or nurse says it is okay, then the child can get vaccinated. Mild sickness should not prevent the child from being vaccinated

  7. I thought vaccines were for babies and young children only. Why do adolescents need vaccines?
    As children grow older, some vaccines become weaker. Additional doses must be given to provide more protection or to guard against other diseases.

  8. Can vaccines prevent a child from getting their own children in future?
    Vaccines are safe. They cannot prevent a child from getting their own children in future.
