What are common MMR reactions? My daughters allergist will administer it due to egg allergies. What can I expect?

Usually nothing: Every day, thousands get an MMR vaccination, and nothing happens except in a few cases. There sometimes is irritation, itching, or soreness at the shot site. A few kids get a mild fever a few days later, and even fewer got some red-spots rash. People with mild rashes to eating eggs are not expected to get an allergic reaction, but getting the shot at the allergist's office is ok for extra safety. ...Read more

Can you tell me what you suggest if im vaccinated for MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) can I still pass the mumps onto others?

Not that likely: Even though you have received the MMR vaccination, it is still possible to be infected. It makes it less likely, but it is still possible.

Using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology the specific number of LDL and HDL particles (ldl-p and hdl-p) are reported. Outcome studies show that ldl-p and hdl-p are more predictive of cardiovascular risk than ldl-c and hdl-c. Click http://www.Theparticletest.Com for more information. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Can MMR cause autism?

No: Although it is likely that environmental exposures have contributed to the recent rise in autism, there is no credible evidence that the MMR vaccine has caused or contributed to increased autism. The study that first raised the concern has now been discredited as fraudulent. Autism is more common in babies born near superfund sites or with high levels of organophosphate pesticides. ...Read more

Speak with Doctor: You cannot be forced to take the flu shot. Though it is much safer to be vaccinated against influenza than to contract this deadly virus, you can speak with your primary care doctor who can help you to advise your employer of your decision not to get the flu shot. ...Read more
