Having a booster for MMR and wondering does it hurt?

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.

Child due for MMR booster next yr but I have measles should she get booster now?

Child due for MMR booster next yr but I have measles should she get booster now?

Can give early: You can give the measles shot portion of the MMR as young as 6 months if there is a high risk of the disease. See your doctor or health department. Your doctor may not carry just the measles shot. The child would still need the MMR at 1 year of age and a booster at 4-6 years.

How long does rubeola titer take to come up after the MMR booster?

How long does rubeola titer take to come up after the MMR booster?

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.

Is it possible that getting a MMR booster shot for my autistic child possibly cause her autism to be more severe?

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 The one paper that implicated vaccines was retracted and the lead physician lost his medical license due to various improprieties.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.

How mang MMR vaccines do you need? I had 2 when I was young do I need 2 boosters again?

How mang MMR vaccines do you need? I had 2 when I was young do I need 2 boosters again?

NO: Assuming you are questioning the normal immunization schedule for mmr, you only need 2 vacines for the mmr, 1 usually at a well check 15-18 months old and the booster at 4-6 year old well check. Hope this helps.

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?

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.

Mmr booster my child arm is swollen and large red area is this normal where injection was given thanks?

Local reaction: Local reactions at the injection site with redness and swelling are the most common side effects. If it persists or worsens, despite local care (ice to area, tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin, etc) then seek medical attention for an evaluation.

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?

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.

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've done had my mmr's, but have to get a titter? What is that exactly?

I've done had my mmr's, but have to get a titter? What is that exactly?

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.

What are the symptoms of a reaction to mmr?

What are the symptoms of a reaction to mmr?

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.
