oa Central African Journal of Medicine - At what age, should measles vaccine be given?

Volume 22, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0008-9176



This paper reports a small study on rural and urban African infants to determine (a) the earliest age at which a high percentage of the population can be successfully vaccinated against measles; (b) whether a reduced dose can be used; (c) whether increasing the dose will cause even younger children to respond and (d) whether there is a ""danger"" period between the time of disappearance of maternal antibody and the time when the child can adequately produce its own.
