Department of Health Measles and Polio Camgain


My son is 16 months old and his immunization is update and I am weighting for the 18 months one.

I took him to the Clinic as per the campaign and they told me that they had closed on the 20th of April 2010 and he had missed the two campaigns ( One for last year and the recent one). What do I do in this case? he stays home and doesn''t go to creche and he is in good health. What do I need to do?

Your baby has already been immunised against measles and polio and is up to date with his vaccinations. There is no need for him to have the extra vaccinations now.

I''m sure its fine to wait for his MMR at 18 months.
The state campaign was just extra vaccines for measles and polio.
