Are there any health risks from any vaccine?
Vaccines are among the safest medicines available. Two common side effects are a sore arm or a low-grade fever. A vaccine, like any medicine, is capable of causing a severe allergic reaction. Please let us know in advance if you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medication.
However, the potential risks associated with the diseases these vaccines prevent are much greater than the potential risks associated with the vaccines themselves.
Women who are pregnant or who are likely to become pregnant within 3 months should not
receive the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine.
