Is The Mmr Vaccine Safe
Pregnancy after how many months of taking MMR vaccine is safe? Is it 1 month or 3 months? Various medical websites gives different answers. What is the actual period till which pregnancy needs to be avoided? Is it 3 months or 1 month?
I : I see what you mean! the recommendations according to the center for disease control (cdc) and the american college of obstetrics and gynecology (acog) are to wait 1 month after vaccination with the MMR to become pregnant. The recommendation from the american academy of pediatrics (aap) and merck, the vaccine manufacturer is to wait 3 months. All 4 are excellent sources of reliable information. My recommendation is to play it safe and wait the 3 months after vaccination to become pregnant or ask the opinion of your ob/gyn. Good luck! ...Read more

I'd MMR vaccine on Aug 20. Is it safe to try for preg before three months. We've already started trying from Oct 29. My dr. said it is safe. M worried?
MMR and pregnancy: The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and ACIP (those are the people in the USA who discuss vaccine safety issues) recommend a waiting period of 4 weeks after the MMR before conception. You are already well past that. I don't know where you heard 3 months, but a four week wait time is enough. Don't worry, and enjoy creating that new life. Congratulations in advance! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Blood work showed I am only not immune to mumps only but I got the MMR vaccine two years ago. Is this possible? Safe to get it again?
Yes: Vaccine news often causes parents to worry - especially since our country doesn't see the actual diseases often. The risks of taking the vaccine are very small compared to the effects of the infection. I would encourage you to talk to your MD about your concerns but I don't hesitate to vaccinate my patients with epilepsy. http://www.nhs.uk/ipgmedia/national/epilepsy%20research%20uk/assets/vaccinationandepilepsy.pdf ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: Women in their childbearing years need to pay attention to their risk of congenital rubella. This will not affect your pregnancy if you show active antibodies from prior vaccine or illness.
