Merdeka.com – Riau state health authorities know that the measles and rubella (MR) immunization program is low and does not reach the target. It reached only 42% due to the goal of 95%.
Mazi Yuliani Nazir, a spokeswoman for the Kadows, said the figures were low because most people still refused immunization.
In fact, starting August 1, the MR vaccination should have ended on October 31. However, the Department of Health extends this period by the end of 2018.
"The MR vaccine will be available by December 31," MRI said in a statement on Sunday (11/11) to merdeka.com.
The MR immunization debate, which has been mentioned as not yet classified as Halal, is one of the main reasons for its rejection.
Mimi said people who know MUI fatwa 30 in 2018 on MR vaccines can vaccinate children between the ages of 9 and 15 years.
Not long ago, Ustadz Abdul Somad said that MR immunization is not prohibited because it is beneficial to the human body and useful as a medicine.
"If you do not inoculate your child, it can adversely affect your child's health due to an MR virus infection," Mimi explained.
Even if the rejection still occurs, Diskes Riau will continue to provide information on how it will affect you if you are not vaccinated by these children.
Diskes provided this immunization to 1,955,659 children in Riau so that they could receive a variety of vaccinations. From elementary school students until the seminar on the impact of this MR virus.
"We will do something like the breakthrough Regency and we will provide a way for children aged 9 to 15 to get vaccinated," he said. [fik]
