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 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.

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 more

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. ...Read more
