[Q&A] MMR booster jab

Question: My girl (5yrs 4mths) was given the booster jab for Chicken Pox recently. But according to the Pediatrician, she needs to be given another booster jab for MMR as well. According to the immunisation schedule, once the child reach 7yrs old, they�ll be given booster jab for MMR right? So, is it necessary to take the MMR booster jab now since there will be given at 7yrs old?

Answer: MMR booster jab will be given at 7 years old, but you have a choice to give it now or at Standard 1. It is not necessary to give it now if you plan to give it at 7 years. .
