lotsofpumpkins Posted March 17, 2012 Share Posted March 17, 2012 My 16-month-old had his MMR vaccine 11 days ago. 2 days ago he started running a fever. I read that this is a normal reaction, but I want to know how long it is expected to last. Thursday he slept a LOT, which made me wonder if something was wrong with him, and then Friday he started with a low-grade fever which stayed about the same all day. Today is Saturday and he's up to 102 this afternoon. I read that although this is essentially a mild case of measles, it is not contagious. How is that? I know they weaken the virus, but if it's enough to make my child sick, how is it not spreadable to others? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
