Hi all just quick question.
My D's had his MMR on Wednesday and he now has chesty cough and runny nose. Is this common after MMR or could he just have a cold anyway?
Thanks.

pipsqueakz (love your name smile ). It is possible that this is from the MMR (would be a bit fast, usually, reactions take a week, but totally possible). If the cough gets worse, I would think cold rather than vaccine though. If in doubt, call the GP. I hope your DS is better soon!

Thanks for reply catherinaJTV. Thought everyone was ignoring me sad lol. My ds seems to get things quick and they go at same speed. He's a tough little mite. But will be keeping close eye on him.
