My son got a mmr vaccine 2 weeks ago. He is now developing a rash all kver his body is this normal? The rash is like little pimple like bumps

Rash: The rash you are describing is not the rash of measles, rather the rash of a viral exanthem which are very common in children this time of year, The treatment is nothing, as it will go away by itself. A child with measles is very ill with high fever, eye redness, cough, and diffuse morbilliform rash all over the body. ...Read more

1 year old had MMR Vaccine 11 days ago, little dot rash over body and a large pea sized lump at nape of neck hairline can't see doctor for a week?

1 year old had MMR Vaccine 11 days ago, little dot rash over body and a large pea sized lump at nape of neck hairline can't see doctor for a week?

Common finding: This is a common finding in many kids who receive the MMR. It is a sign the weakened virus in the vaccine did its job well and the kid had a minor rash in response. The real thing would have been 20X worse. The lump is a reactive lymph node and will reduce in size within 2-3 wks. You might call the office to have the experience recorded in the chart, but I wouldn't worry about going in. ...Read more

Is it really the case that the MMR vaccine causes intestinal problems which then leads to autism?

Fraudulent research: Wakefield, a british GI doc published a report in a british journal in 1998 proposing such a theory. His research could not be replicated & was later proven to involve fraud. He has been stripped of his medical license & the journal published a retraction. It has led to the deaths of hundreds of children when their frightened parents turned away from vaccines. Shame on him & those who spread this lie. ...Read more

Does the MMR vaccine cause autism. Is it ok to have other vaccinations at the same time. I believe children are given 2 others with the MMR at 12 mths?

No: Vaccine haters in the 80's told us they caused cp, in the 90's crib death ; now autism. Court testimony revealed a money making hoax behind the MMR scare and the dr lost his license to practice. The vaccines have been the single best lifesaver for kids in a hundred years. The number given at one time has been proven safe and effective. Get them all and be safe. ...Read more

Can the rubella vaccine cause autism? I’ve heard stories about the MMR vaccine, which includes rubella, can cause autism or other problems. Is there any evidence that this could be true?

In: In 1998, a doctor by the name of andrew wakefield published a study in the lancet journal implicating a relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Wakefield's study was found to be fraudulent, the data was manipulated and the study was retracted by the lancet in 2004. Dr. Wakefield even had his medical license revoked for unethical practices.

After this study was published in 1998, it spurred tons of research looking in to whether the relationship between vaccines and autism could be true. There have been well over 100 large-scale studies and evidence reviews looking at the relationship between vaccines and autism and every single one of those studies has shown that vaccines (including the mmr) do not cause autism.

Below, I've linked to 3 websites that discuss this controversy and the research involved in-depth. I will also add that I vaccinated my own child on the schedule recommended by the center for disease control and american academy of pediatrics without any hesitation. ...Read more

Fraudulent study: Wakefield, a British GI doc studied some autistic kids sent to him by attorneys who funded his work. He published a brief report in the LANCET, trying to associate the MMR with enlarged lymph nodes in the bowel wall and implicated the MMR in autism.In a major court case his work was found to be bogus, fradulent. Lancet retracted the paper, he lost his medical license and left Britain. All a fraud. ...Read more

Why MMR vaccine is given in subcutaneous site?

Why MMR vaccine is given in subcutaneous site?

MMR is given SQ: Mmr should be given sq as that route gives the best antibody response and any deviation from that recommendation can result in inadequate protection. However, response to MMR vaccine probably will not be affected if administered by the im rather than sq route, and, therefore, repeating the dose is not necessary. ...Read more

Doctors, what are the concerns of the MMR vaccine and are they serious?

Avoiding it is: The vaccine haters have tried to link shots to crib death, cerebral palsy and now autism over the past 30 yrs. Each time the science has proven them wrong. The british doc who claimed MMR triggered cases lost his license when his fraudulent research was exposed. Measles cases are increasing in the us because of this misinformation. With 1/1000 developing encephalitis and death possibl this is sad. ...Read more

It saves lives: Your grandparents were in the last generation to routinely face death or disability due to these preventable illnesses. Their parents welcomed the vaccines as they were developed rather than face a funeral. Today those memories are gone & people focus on the temporary discomfort of shots, fake research of doc's that lost their licenses or the self appointed expert opinions of a playboy centerfold. ...Read more
