Can a child get measles even if they've had MMR injection?

Im not a coctor or anything but i believe there ar edifferent strains of it and y ou are only protected against the most common

Yes..My son had a mild form of it AFTER he had the injection (it's known as a outburst for the body to fight against!)

Yes but they won't now die from it. Measles is a killer but the MMR saves lives.

Yes but it is usually a milder attack which carries far less risk of complications.

yes my daughter did.

Yes. I had MMR jab and I've had measles, mumps *and* rubella!

Yes,a vaccination just gives protection against measles so that the effects of measles is lessend due to the body having some resistance to to disease.Same with mumps.

It is possible , but supposedly the case will be lighter. There are other "spot" rash diseases in children. If your child has a fever, is uncomfortable, rash getting worse or has any unusual sensitivities to light etc. - get them to a dr. Call first and let them know that the kid may be contagious. You do not want to wait in a room filled with other sick and vulnerable kids. There are some potentially very serious diseases that can cause rashes. If you are at all concerned, call your dr.

They should not - the MMr is measles, mumps and rubella.

Yes, but if they have the MMR it won't kill them.

It depends on whether or not the child's body reacted as expected to the vcaccine. When people get vaccinations, their bodies are SUPPOSED to identify the new disease causing particle and develop antibodies to it. That way, when the body sees that disease causing particle again it knows how to fight it.

That said, it is possible to receive the vaccine and for some reason--effectiveness of that particular lot of vcaccine, the person's immune response to the vaccine, correct dose of vaccine for example--the person does not develop the antibodies as intended.

What you can do to make sure that the vaccination "took" is have your doctor order a lab test to make sure the antibodies are present in the amount required to be considered immune. Or else the vaccine could be given again. Without that lab test though, you and everyone else is just assuming the vaccine worked.

I have a friend who took Hepatitis B Vaccine series (3 shots over several months) at least twice and she never developed enough antibodies to be considered immune.

So, to answer your question, YES, the child could still get measles if she was exposed to measles and her vaccination did not work properly.

Fences and windows
MMR vaccine effectiveness against measles over 5 years is around 90%. In a situation where nearly all children are vaccinated, the likelihood of someone who is infected with measles passing it on becomes so low that it is unlikely that a single person will catch the disease from them. The virus simply can't spread even if it is introduced from abroad, and this is the point at which a country is considered free from measles. The US is currently in this happy status with measles. The UK saw a halt in measles cases during the mid-90s as a result of MMR.

However, due to the MMR scare, vaccination rates have fallen to around 80% in London - the virus can much more easily spread among those who are unvaccinated, and those who were vaccinated but didn't undergo seroconversion (i.e. they didn't start producing antibodies against measles) are also at an increased risk. So at the moment, the chances of a vaccinated child contracting measles are higher than if there was near-universal vaccination. Of course, unvaccinated children face a massively increased risk of contracting measles!
