Yes. Studies have exhaustively shown that this package is safe.
It is recommended. It is ok to receive the MMR (mumps, rubeola, rubella) and the varivax (varicella) vaccines on the same day. That's the opinion of the cdc and the american academy of pediatrics. The mmrv (combined MMR and varivax) is not recommended for the initial vaccine given at 12 to 15 months of age because of an increased rate of febrile seizures over the MMR and varivax given individually on the same day.
No. Many physicians give the mmrv together. And claim no problems. Literature says it is ok. I do not recommend it nor offer it in my practice. It is four live viruses together and i prefer giving MMR and varicella separately on different days for better response . Mmrv increases the risk of seizures with fever (up by 9% over MMR alone...Check out cdc website.) do your own research.
No. All of these viruses are detected by individual blood tests. A separate one is needed for each. Read more...
How long is supposed to go by between the first and second vaccination dose for mumps, measles and rubella?
What happens if I'm vaccinated for MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) can I still pass the mumps onto others?
No. Your vaccination does not set you up to pass any of the 3 illnesses to anyone else. . 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. Immunity may wane over time and booster vaccinations are given to help the immune cells remember the response to fight the disease. Read more...
