Having A Booster For Mmr And Wondering Does It Hurt
Not as much: Doesn't hurt as much as getting one of the illnesses. The united kingdom is having to witness what happens when enough people back away from a vaccine. Britain faces a measles epidemic (as ireland before it) & has been enduring mumps as well with serious--occasional grave- consequences. The MMR shot--stings for an instant when given in the soft tissue of the upper arm but saves lives. Maybe yours.See 1 more doctor answer
I got my MMR shot in 1989, and another one in 1997, do I need a booster shot or are those two shots enough?
About 4 weeks: The booster is actually only designed to catch the roughly 5% of "non responders" to 1st dose of mmr. The 2nd MMR dose though may enhance MMR immune titers as well. Studies in those getting first dose show variation in how quick they mount response based on age & possibly genetics, whether breastfeeding, etc. For older infant: response rates: 85-90 % 4 weeks 81% 3 weeks 61% 2 weeks 2% 1 week.
About 3 weeks: Booster vaccine response of igg is slower than immune response to disease. Igm may be positive at 8-14 days after vaccination but igg is often not positive after vaccination until post 3 weeks.
Is it possible that getting a MMR booster shot for my autistic child possibly cause her autism to be more severe?
No connection: There is no evidence that vaccines cause or worsen autism. The one paper that implicated vaccines was retracted and the lead physician lost his medical license due to various improprieties. Millions of dollars have been spent looking at vaccines and autims, and there has never been any link found.
Just got mmr booster for immigration purposes-- found records that I was immune already but got the shot anyway. Is this bad? Will I get mumps?
No: Repeating the vaccine just reminds your system to be vigilant & fight off those germs if exposed. It would not put you at any extra risk of any disease.
5yr old had MMR vaccine when he was 1. Blood teiter test shows immunity does he still need a booster shot, if yes then when and how long its good for?
Boosting immunity: We gave one MMR for about 22 years before realizing that enough kids had lost some of their protection that they were getting measles as college freshman. The addition of the 2nd dose at 5, regardless of their blood test at that age, has essentially eliminated seasonal outbreaks of measles on collage campuses. It may be another two decades before we know if other boosters are needed later.See 1 more doctor answer
Very Little Pain: It is an injection and a little pain is expected but not much at all
Wanted to know if getting encephalitis shots, hepatitis a and b, mmr, and DPT shots hurt real bad?
Vaccinations: Typically the shot itself doesn't hurt much. Certain vaccinations may be more uncomfortable than others in the day or so following. I know that from personal experience, tetanus shots make my shoulder sore for the next several days. The benefit of vaccination definitely outweighs the risk of discomfort after the shot.
I had this lump a week ago on my hip, it didn't hurt, it just itched. 2 days beforehand I had gotten flu vaccine, mmr, tetanus, and hepatitus b shots.
Lump: Lump may be due to the multiple vaccines you received. Use cool compresses to reduce the sewlling.
Antibody level: A titer is basically just a blood test to gauge how strong the antibody level is in your system to a specified agent. The higher the tighter, the better the protection. A low or absent titer would mean no active protection against that disease.
See below:: Nearly all children who get the MMR vaccine (more than 80%) will have no side effects. Most children who have a side effect will have only a mild reaction: soreness, redness or swelling where the shot was given, mild rash, mild to moderate fever, swelling of the lymph glands, and temporary pain, stiffness, or temporary swelling in the joints. In about 5% to 15% fever may be present 7-12 days after.
48 HOURS TO A WEEK: Blood is drawn and and sent to the lab. Depending on the Lab the results in most labs may be available within 48 hours. Sometimes doctor's office has to call the lab and get the results on phone But by mail it is within a week or less depending on mail time
