Bhubaneswar: There are no national guidelines for vaccinating young children against measles. We will make arrangements to vaccinate once the guidelines arrive. We have no guidelines on how to give a booster dose. Booster doses are being given in some countries, including Israel. The guidelines have not yet arrived. If needed, the guidelines will be issued by the central government. This was stated by DMK Dr. CBK Mohanty.
“In our state, about 12 percent of the children are now infected,” he said. In Bhubaneswar, infections are on the rise because people do not follow the cowboy rules. “People in the bazaar are calling for infection.”
