Why do we need the MMR vaccine?

Why do we need the MMR vaccine?

Think about it: As long as there are pockets of active disease in the world we need the population protected. A person incubating one of these sometimes deadly diseases can board a plane & be in your town/grocery/mall/school a day later spreading the germs. Without protection the population goes back to the way it was in the 1800's when people died by the tens of thousands from these diseases. ...Read more

What is the deal with everyone's suggestion about giving their child MMR vaccine?

What is the deal with everyone's suggestion about giving their child MMR vaccine?

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. Mumps, while often benign, brings risk for pancreatitis, encephalitis, & infertility through inflammation of testes. Kids were not immunized there. Europe's current measles crisis has 90% of cases among adults and teens who were never vaccinated. The numbers are profound. ...Read more

How are the first MMR vaccine, and the second dose. Distinguished from each other?

How are the first MMR vaccine, and the second dose. Distinguished from each other?

Doses are same but:: About 5% of people don't respond to 1st dose of mmr. The reason for the second dose is to catch those non responders & give them a chance to develop an immune response to measles, mumps and rubella too. It also appears that seeing the MMR vaccine a second time may, in fact, stimulate (somewhat) a better antibody build up in those who were able to react the first time around so 2 doses best for all. ...Read more

Why would the MMR vaccine be given to babies and not adults?

Why would the MMR vaccine be given to babies and not adults?

But it is!!: Mmr if given in infancy and childhood will generally give a person lifelong immunity. In some cases, it does not and the vaccine can be repeated in adulthood. The original MMR was given once around 12-15 months for about 23 years when they realized a few were not protected by college age. After about 1990 we began giving a booster & that seemed to fix the issue. ...Read more
