Due to the measles outbreak, my baby’s pediatrician want to give him the MMR vaccine. Has anyone given it to their baby under 12 months? What was your experience?

I gave it to my 9 month old son back during the mumps outbreak. He had really high fever about ten days later.

That’s pretty common with the MMR. My kids tend to get high fever with the MMR too.

It wasn't tested on a baby under 12 months as per vaccine insert

I gave it at 9 months because of the outbreak, as well. No side effects or issues at all.

Statistically, the chances of adverse effects being immediate and severe are really, really low. Even the more common mild effects are in a small percentage of cases.

Because the long-term impact on infants has not been studied, there are some that are wary, but if you live in an area of outbreak, then that has to be balanced against the known risks of complications if they do get measles.

I did not vaccinate my 9-month old, but I don't live in Williamsburg or Monsey.

I’m afraid to vaccinate my eight month old and am very careful where she goes. It’s scary to give the vaccine bec cdc never found it safe for babies so young and if Chas v’shalom they do discover side effects in babies so young it won’t come out for at least a year so honestly I’d rather wait until 12 months to give it. I don’t want my baby to be the ginnea pig to see if vaccine is safe

I did at 6 months. He did fine.

FYI - if you give shot before 12 months they need an extra shot.

How old is the baby now? Did the dr strongly suggest you give it, or was it your choice?

Same question here:

Gave it at 7 months after fighting to be able to give it (travel to Israel). No reaction at all. Baby is now a year and will get the shot again at the next visit which will count as being the first. So he'll get another one later, 3 total instead of 2. The doctor said it is safe from 6 months on, they usually only give it after a year because maternal antibodies may still be present at a younger age, which would make he vaccine ineffective.

This is what I was told as well. It's not that it's dangerous for 6 to 12 months but less effective

I gave my baby the MMR when he just turned 10 months- I just had his titers(antibodies) checked through a blood test at 15 months and it showed he is immune- in fact the phlebotomist who read my results to me was suprised when I asked her “does this mean he doesn’t need a third dose, that he is as immune as he would be if I waited until he was 12 months old” and she was caught off guard because she didn’t know that he had gotten the MMR at 10 months (I went to another facility for blood work). Moral of the story is get the MMR early, then after 12 months have the blood test to check titers/antibodies=immunity!!!!!

Baby is almost 12 months. I chose to give it based on where I live and the outbreak.
