IF YOU PLAN ON YOUR CHILD HAVING DENTAL SURGERY it is very important that you speak first with your primary care provider and get a pre-operation exam. If you have questions please call.
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING out of the country please discuss your children's MMR vaccinations with your Johnson County Pediatrics physician. There are significant outbreaks of measles in several areas of the world, most notably Europe and Southeast Asia.
The first dose of measles vaccine is routinely recommended at age 12 to 15 months in the United States. However, children traveling outside the United States are recommended to get the vaccine starting at age 6 months. If your child is aged 6 to 11 months and will be traveling internationally talk to your doctor about getting the measles vaccine.
If children are 12 months or older they should receive two doses of the vaccine before traveling out of the country. The second dose of MMR is usually given at age 5, but should be given earlier if leaving the United States. The two doses must be separated by 28 days.
