I am vaccinated for MMR with 2 childhood doses. It makes me nervous that the first MMR dose for babies isnt until 12 months, especially with measles. I was thinking that the best protection i can offer my baby is to make surr i am protected from measles. I asked my GP if adults need a MMR booster, & she shrugged it off.
So i am wondering - has anyone had a MMR booster as an adult? Is it important? If so, why isnt it advertised as childhood vaccination is? I find it strange that we are so pedantic as a society about childhood immunisations, but adult boosters are ignored & not encouraged. I pushed to have my WC booster, but why is it not seen as important for adults too? Surely that means that the risk is low?
