MMR. 1st is at age 12-15 month. 2nd at age 4years old (but it could be given before age 4 year. Specially if concern about kid not conning back for 4 year old visit).
At the same time. I give this at the same visit if the kid needs them. There is no time sensitivity issue. You can go back in and have it given at any time.
Should I give into my sister-in-laws constant nagging of getting the MMR vaccine for my 11 month old son?

At or after age 1. Unless you are located or traveling through a region with a known outbreak, we don't give this until a year of age and a booster between 4-6. As long as someone anywhere in the world can fly in while incubating these illnesses, they can pass them to your unvaccinated kid. The past research used as scare tactics by the vaccine hater crowd from 1998 was proven fraudulent.

MMR. Usually side effects from the MMR vaccine are seen within 7-12 days after the vaccine. Fever and rash are considered amongst the "mild" side-effects. It's also possible that your son has something completely different. Encourage hydration: water, pedialyte, juice, may use ibuprofen or acetaminophen to decrease temp. If fever is greater than 39' Celsius (about 103'F) then report to your pedi doc.

Return to doctor. Fever after an immunization usually lasts 48 hours or less. More likely, the fever is due to an infectious illness. Please return to your son's doctor as soon as possible for follow up.
