I wake up very early today to bring Elijah to the nearest health center (ATAB). He is scheduled for his MMR vaccine. The attendant told me last week when I had my DMPA injection that they offer the MMR vaccine for one year and three months old kid for free so I grab the chance.
MMR stands for Measles, Mumps, Rubella. It protects our little ones against the three viruses. The one shot vaccine was less painful than having three different injections at the same time. The second dose should be given at the age of four or five. It won’t cause fever after injecting.
The vaccine costs less than one thousand pesos in private clinics. I am really blessed that ATAB offers free vaccines for my unico iho. FYI, All his injections were free.
