Does Previous Severe Reaction To Mmr Vaccine Cause Severe Vaccine Reaction
What type reaction: If a child has a local reaction to the MMR vaccine (a rash where the shot was given), it may be a reaction to the preservatives in the vaccine. A more systemic reaction (involving the whole body) may be a reaction to the egg base of the vaccine.

My 15 mo old had the MMR vaccine 8 days ago & spiked a high fever last night with no other symptoms- could this be a vaccine reaction? Help! worried
No: There was a small study many years ago funded ( fraudulently not disclosed) by the anti vaccine lobbyist lawyers which resulted in some suggestion of this. It was later retracted by the Lancet when this was disclosed. Many subsequent years of global research has not shown any association. Many children have died from the devastating effects of this misinformation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can the rubella vaccine cause autism? I’ve heard stories about the MMR vaccine, which includes rubella, can cause
autism or other problems. Is there any evidence that this could be true?
In : In 1998, a doctor by the name of andrew wakefield published a study in the lancet journal implicating a relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Wakefield's study was found to be fraudulent, the data was manipulated and the study was retracted by the lancet in 2004. Dr. Wakefield even had his medical license revoked for unethical practices. After this study was published in 1998, it spurred tons of research looking in to whether the relationship between vaccines and autism could be true. There have been well over 100 large-scale studies and evidence reviews looking at the relationship between vaccines and autism and every single one of those studies has shown that vaccines (including the mmr) do not cause autism. Below, i've linked to 3 websites that discuss this controversy and the research involved in-depth. I will also add that i vaccinated my own child on the schedule recommended by the center for disease control and american academy of pediatrics without any hesitation. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I did for mine: Look at the united kingdom's mumps crisis in which 57, 000 cases of mumps alone occurred in 2005 most in young people ages 15-24.
