can you pass on rubella from having the MMR? Or is this HCP misinformed?

I don;t understand how you can get a virus from someone with no symptoms just an injection of MMR. perhaps if they drank your blood?

I recall that we had to be careful around FIL when the DSs had their jabs as he was immune suppressed due to chemo. I think that was more to do with changing nappies and the slim possibility of live virus being excreted than them randomly shedding virus though. we weren't told to stay completely away though, and definitely weren't told to avoid pregnant women.

I googled - they suggest avoiding becoming pregnant for 1 month after having an MMR yourself maybe she's getting confused with that?

biting very common in toddler groups though - and I've never heard anyone warned not to let their newly vaccinated child bite a pregnant woman! How exactly does a vaccine injected into your vein "shed"? confused

No worries pistachio, didn't take it the wrong way smile
