The Dreaded MMR 2006/03/22

Posted by Mummy Ruth in Baby, Health.

This afternoon, Dave and I had to take baby Olivia along to the Surgery for her MMR vaccination. This was Dave’s first time with the baby and the jabs… and he was worried about the whole thing. It’s been a while since the last jabs… 12th July last year.
As it happened, it was really good that Dave was there as it seemed to have a positive effect on the wee one, and she didn’t cry at all! He was very impressed with her! The jab was on her wee right leg only, so it was over in a flash, and suddenly we were out, pushing the pram in the afternoon sunshine.

There’s been quite a media controversy about the MMR jab.

As responsible parents, we discussed the single MMR issues and looked into it, and we cannot understand what all the fuss is about to be honest. We have more of an issue with the poor standards at the NHS in general, and worry that Olivia might get mistreated in some way through negligence — like last month and that seven-week old baby getting an MMR by mistake!
