Why do we need the MMR vaccine?

Why do we need the MMR vaccine?

Think about it: As long as there are pockets of active disease in the world we need the population protected. A person incubating one of these sometimes deadly diseases can board a plane & be in your town/grocery/mall/school a day later spreading the germs. Without protection the population goes back to the way it was in the 1800's when people died by the tens of thousands from these diseases. ...Read more

After about 1990 we began giving a booster & that seemed to fix the issue. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
