Thread: Vaccination Worries

    Default Vaccination Worries

    Hi,

    Due to immigration requirements, I need to get vaccinated. Will the MMR, DT and Varilix vaccines get excreted in my milk? Can my baby get the virus?

    Please advise!

    Thank you!

    Here's a link to the CDC's recommendations and contraindications with breastfeeding:
    http://www.cdc.gov/breastfeeding/rec...ccinations.htm

    Where I am in Canada, DT vaccination begins for infants at their 2-month well-baby visit, and MMR is administered to children at 12 months. You should consult with a pediatrician to ensure your child's immunizations are up to date for his/her age, as DT and MMR are strongly recommended vaccinations for the general population, including young children. With the exception of some very limited at-risk populations, EVERYONE should be vaccinated.

    Best,
