Please vaccinate: Please do not stop vaccinating your any, risks of not vaccinating are tremendous and will endanger your child for his/Hers entire life and people around

MMR safety: The MMR vaccines are given in a series of 2 because sometimes people do not build enough immunity from the first shot. Two shots usually will protect your child for life. Having a rash with the MMR vaccine is not unusual (especially near where the injection hapens) and is not considered a dangerous allergic reaction. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/vis-statements/mmr.html
