When Should Your Child Get Vaccinated for Measles?


By Molly Clifton

A new study from Kaiser Permanente finds children are better off getting their first dose of the measles vaccine at 12 to 15 months instead of waiting till they’re older.

Researchers found kids who received their first shot a few months later were more likely to experience side effects, including seizures and fever.

Kids receive two measles vaccines.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends the first at 12 to 15 months and the second between 4 and 6 years old.
