FromDurbs Posted September 6, 2018 Report Share Posted September 6, 2018 This might be my most detailed question yet. I am in Australia already and decided to get my children to get HPV vaccines, which in South Africa is only recommended for girls, but in Australia is given to both boys and girls. Taking them the nurse noticed that my children never had measles, mumps and rubella vaccinations according to her reading of the South African government Road to Health cards. And she is correct. On the card is written "Measles 1". She claims it is only measles, since that is what is written there. I was under the impression kids get measles, mumps and rubella, not just measles. Does anyone know? And if it does include mumps and rubella how do I convince her? Now she wants to give the kids mumps and rubela vaccinations. At the moment she was just going to vaccinate them anyway - guess it wont harm ? At the bottom of the one card there is a hand written note saying: "Trimovax (Masels Duitse Masels Pampoentjies)", but that is not linked to any specific date or other entry.
