MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)

MMR vaccine is administered to immunize your child against measles, mumps and rubella. This is a very important vaccine because contracting any of these diseases can lead to serious health complications.

What is the MMR vaccine, and why is it so important

This vaccine is administered to immunize your child against measles, mumps and rubella. This is a very important vaccine because contracting any of these diseases can lead to serious health complications.

Measles:
Measles can result in serious, sometimes fatal complications. 

Mumps:
Mumps is not a serious disease if contracted while you are a child. However, it can have serious consequences like sterility or deafness in adulthood.

Rubella:
You may not realize that you have contracted Rubella or German measles. The symptoms are so mild that they are almost non-existent. It is necessary to immunize your child against Rubella because it can cause birth defects in the foetus of a pregnant woman who is infected. Immunization aims at safeguarding the future foetuses of little girls and reduces the risk of pregnant mothers possibly being infected by their children. 
 

What kind of reactions will my child get

The baby will usually develop reactions to the vaccine only a week or two after the shot has been given. These reactions are generally very mild and may include a rash, slight fever, swelling of the neck or salivary glands, and aching joints.
 

To whom should this vaccine not be given

It is dangerous to administer the vaccine to anyone who is severely allergic to eggs or to an antibiotic called neomycin.

"Vaccines contain substances which are so noxious that they should not ever be injected into a human body."
Dr Viera Scheibner PhD, Australia

The MMR vaccine contains three live viruses which cause man health problems including autism. This vaccine is unnecessary because measles, mumps and rubella are generally harmless and even beneficial for healthy, vaccine-free children.
