Abstract

Background:No study in Indonesia has previously investigated measles antibody levels in children aged 1-4 years by comparing the first and second immunization.

Objectives:We aim to compare the protective measles antibody level after the first and second scheduled immunization..

Method:This cross-sectional study involved six Integrated Service Post (Posyandu) in five Jakarta regions in June-August 2014. Children meeting the inclusion criteria proceeded with measles IgG levels examination. Correlation test assessed the relationship between the second dose of measles immunization and measles antibody levels.

Results:Of 145, 125 subjects (86.2%) reached protective measles antibody levels (≥ 120 mIU/ml). Compared to other age groups, 3-4 years old reported a higher proportion of reaching protective measles antibody levels in 56 subjects (91.8%).

Conclusion:The second scheduled measles immunization provides higher measles antibody levels, with 1.2 times protective levels compared to first-time immunization.
