The nurse though had freaked me out. I didn't research it all because I did all that 18 months ago when my daughter was getting her vacs and I decided I'd go ahead with the typical course. In my head I've put my concerns to bed generally speaking.
When I asked what it was he was getting and what were the risks and the aftercare she (looked a bit shocked) and said I could have phoned any time beforehand and asked to speak to a nurse and discuss it. I felt like... well I'm asking now? She just told me to read he NHS website and didn't tell me anything. I went ahead anyway but I wasn't reassured. I'm paranoid about my son as he had sepsis at 9 weeks, RSV and hospitalised at 14 weeks.. just been unlucky but always come out fine.
He got three MMR and three boosters just three days ago. Four jabs in total and he's doing fine.
I guess I'm looking for assurance that this vaccine is very safe and not to have to look for untoward reactions. I know to watch for a mild rash at the 12 day mark and re general aftercare (the site of injection is sore and solid like a lump but he's not in any pain).
Sorry it wasn't helpful. It is a difficult question. Ask anyone with a vaccine damaged child if they think they are safe. That is why i pointed to to the diseases themselves and the pils's as anything else is simple other people's opinions.
Are you expecting all our children Cuddlebug to offer your children herd immunity ? Perhaps you'd rather chance measles than the vaccine - this is what you are risking as more parents read and the believe all kinds of anti - vaccine shit on the internet.
Actual measles is a killer and most people my age 50s know people who caught measles and I personally know one person with permanently damaged eyesight from it. I don't know anyone damaged by vaccines.
