what do i do to retrieve proof of having the mmr vaccine?

Records or titres: Mmr is given at 1 year of age with a booster at 5 years. Most doctors and clinics must keep records of all immunizations. However, with no records available, if you have never had any of these diseases, blood titres may show immunity. If no immunity, a booster might be needed to assure you won't get any of these diseases as an adult!

MMR vaccine: If you need proof that you have had the vaccine - you can alway get blood tests that measure the titers for measles, mumps and rubella. Titers means the antibody levels in the blood. A high titer will mean that you have been vaccinated and that you have an immunity to the disease.

High Schools, : colleges, universities, graduate schools, the armed services & some workplaces require proof of an MMR booster. It's even more important for women planning to conceive to know they're protected. There has been a resurgence of measles because of vaccine phobia.

You can get a record from the doctor who gave you the vaccine. You can also have your current doctor look up the dose in the state vaccine database if you are in the same state.

Redness and swelling: The side effects of the MMR vaccine are similar to those of other vaccines. These include fever; redness, swelling and pain at the injection site; rash; swollen glands; and joint pain. These side effects eventually go away on their own. Despite past concerns about the safety of this vaccine, several studies have found no link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

Dr. Gregory Mosolf

Follow schedule: Currently 99% of pediatricians are recommending that everyone follow the cdc schedule of vaccination for the mmr. The idea that the MMR vaccine causes autism has been debunked/disproven. In the usa the first MMR is given at age 12 to 15 months. The 2nd dose at age 4 to 6 years.

Yes: Mmr is "measles, mumps and rubella" all in 1 shot. However, children are recommended to get 2 doses for best immunity. M-m-r are no longer available to be given separately.
