In connection to my previous post about MMR2 vaccination for toddlers, I would like to add up these possible side effects any toddler could get after having immunized with this MMR2 vaccine. At the clinic, I was told that like all medicines, this M-M-RvaxPro vaccine can cause side effects like fever, injection site redness, injection site pain, injection swelling and few reports of injection site bruising.
According to the nurse who has given this vaccine to my little girl, there are other side effects which have been reported with the use of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine and these are burning or stinging of short duration at the injection site, joint pain or swelling, rash, and unusual bleeding or bruising under the skin. There were also other less common side effects have been reported and some were serious and this includes allergic reaction, seizures, and inflammation of the brain.
Now, the side effects 1 out of 10 in which children usually gets are the fever, injection site redness, injection site pain and swelling and the rests are very seldom. My little girl was one of those who did not experience any side effect of the said medicine but I was glad I was told that these may occur, as it made me aware and also prepared for the worst situation that could have happened. So if any side effect your child gets that leads to serious, it is best to tell a doctor and seek medical attention.
