MMR Booster

(5 Posts)

Hi ds (3.5) had his pre-school booster last Thursday which was his 4-1 & his mmr.
The nurse said as his mmr is a live vaccine he may experience a reaction in 7-14 days.
Last night he was really unsettled, up continually through the night, crying & wide awake.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar after their child's Pre-school booster?

My 3 year old just had his booster yesterday. If like last time I expect a feverish night in near future. He also threw up on his hot night.
Think quite normal.
Hope all well now.

Thanks Sunflower, he slept til 8:30 after his unsettled night & seems full of beans as usual just Mummy that's a wreck with no sleep!
Hope your little boy is ok x

DS has a similar reaction to every vaccination (he has annual flu jabs) - the immune system creates an immune response so it's meant to happen.

Calpol and lots of fluids should see him through.
