Mmr after steroids

DS is due his pre school booster and I am keen to get it booked as soon as possible.

However he is asthmatic and has had two 3 day courses of steroids in the last 10 days. How soon after steroids is it safe to give a vaccine?

It shouldn't be an issue. However, your best bet is to phone your DOCTOR rather than random people on mumsnet! They'll have the BNF entry for the particular steroid (as they're not all the same!) and all the literature surrounding the vaccine.
