How long does the MMR shot protect you

How long does the MMR shot protect you and is it recommended for your child if they have any type of heart problems. I also had a son whom got sick after this shot w/seizures and brain tumor. He never got better and passed on. Is this shot something we should avoid with our daughter?

Re: How long does the MMR shot protect you

MMR is a live vaccine and should convert a person for life if given 2 doses. A titer can be drawn to see if you have converted.

Re: How long does the MMR shot protect you

It is something you really have to research and think hard about. Trust your instincts. I do not want to advise you on a very important decision such as this. I am sorry for your loss.

If it happened to me, I would not risk it with my other children since there is a known risk factor (sensitivity of reaction to vaccines), but that is what I would do.
