How many times can a child come down with measles?
A child is open to contract measles if not vaccinated against it. And it's only in some situations that the child will have it again.

According to Dr Gbemisola Response to similar post "There are few reasons why that may happen.

1. The measles vaccine the baby had was not original, or it has lost its potency by a break in the cold chain.....that is why it is important you take your vaccines in reputable places especially govt ...some private hospitals store in their fridge with NEPA wahala...cold chain could have been broken.

2. The vaccine was given at the time the mum's own measles antibodies are still working...this will neutralize the vaccine so child was vaccinated but not immunized.....this is the challenge or dilemma we face about the optimal time to give measles vaccine....usually the vaccine wanes by 6 months but may persist in some babies as at the time the vaccine is being given at 9 months......hence while we advocate booster dose at 12 - 15 months given with mumps and rubella as MMR.

3. Also the child's immunity can wane after some years.....this is the reason we do some measles campaigns....when all children 0 - 59 months are given 2nd doses of measles vaccines.

4. Finally, this infection the child has now may not be MEASLES....YES THERE ARE OTHER THINGS THAT MAY LOOK LIKE MEASLES BUT ARE NOT MEASLES....the only way to confirm measles is not just by the rashes but by VIRAL STUDIES....then you are 100% sure it is measles.....there are many other viral infections that can mimic measles even drug reactions

5. Finally and very rarely the child can still have measles even after being immunized but IT WILL BE MILD MEASLES
Please to know the exact kind of rashes your baby has you have to take the child to the health center. Any case of measles must be diagnosed by a Doctor.
