I took my son to Taipei’s hospital for 18-month well baby check-up yesterday (his first well baby check-up in Taiwan); he had his 5 in 1 (prevnar) shot.
According to Toronto’s immunization schedule, one should be given the Mumps, Measles, and rubella (MMR) shot during both 12 months and 18 months well baby check up. However, I asked the doctor why my son wasn’t given the MMR, he said Taiwan only give MMR once, which, during 15 months.
I’m wondering if the dose of MMR given in Canada the same as Taiwan. If they’re the same, why does Toronto give MMR twice, but Taiwan only give it once.
Please advise. Thanks!!
