What is the dose for the measles injection?
Q: What is the dose for the measles injection and is it necessary to give Vitamin A along with the measles injection?
A:The single dose amount is 0.5 ml (same as part of the MMR vaccine). Administration of Vitamin A is NOT necessary as a part of immunization. This is recommended to prevent Vitamin A deficiency in children predisposed to develop this deficiency. In households with good nutrition, the chances of deficiency are very little.
