Indication : M-VAC is indicated for immunisation of all susceptible children against measles. It is recommended to be given to children at 9 months of age, or as soon as thereafter, to protect against measles in early life. Immunisation against measles is particularly important for institutionalized children and for children who may be malnourished or subject to chronic diseases such as heart disease, cystic fibrosis, asthma, tuberculosis or other chronic pulmonary disorders.
Use : Reconstitute the freeze dried vaccine by adding the entire contents of the diluent (Sterile Water for Injections) supplied to the single-dose vial by using sterile disposable syringe and needle. With gentle shaking the dried cake is easily dissolved. After reconstitution the vaccine should be used immediately. A single dose of 0.5 ml should be administered by deep subcutaneous injection into the upper arm.
The diluent and reconstituted vaccine should be inspected visually for any foreign particulate matter and / or variation of physical aspects prior to administration. In the event of either being observed, discard the diluent or reconstituted vaccine.
