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. ...Read moreSee 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?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
2 should be enough: The 2 doses given at an early age should be enough to give you lifelong protection to all three germs. This assumes that the vaccine was handled correctly and given on a proper schedule. Sometimes an obstetrician will do a antibody test to verify your rubella protection and suggest an additional dose if it is low. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 The one paper that implicated vaccines was retracted and the lead physician lost his medical license due to various improprieties.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. ...Read more
Mmr booster my child arm is swollen and large red area is this normal where injection was given thanks?
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
