MR-Vac Vaccine


Overview

Introduction

MR-Vac Vaccine is a prescription medicine. This combination of two vaccines is used to prevent Rubella and Measles infections. It stimulates the immune system to act against microorganisms to prevent such infections. These infections usually occur in childhood.

MR-Vac Vaccine is to be administered by a healthcare professional. It may cause redness, pain, and swelling at the site of injection. However, this is temporary and usually resolves on its own. Do not skip any doses and follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get maximum benefit.

MR-Vac Vaccine is generally safe to use with minimal side effects. However, it may cause a few side effects such as rash and fever. Please consult your doctor if these do not subside or bother you. Your doctor will suggest ways to cope up with the side effects.

Before taking it, inform your doctor if you are suffering from any liver or kidney problems. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctor before taking it.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Rash
    There are many treatments for a wide range of skin problems. Avoid hot showers or baths because hot water can irritate the skin. Make sure to pat dry your skin after a bath or shower. Do not rub or scratch the affected area. Leave the skin exposed to the air as much as possible. Do not use perfumed soaps or deodorants. Water containing chlorine can make most skin problems worse, so avoid swimming. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke and caffeine as it may also make itching worse. Avoid excessive sun exposure. Always use sunscreen and protective clothing when outdoors. Moisturizers can be used regularly to soothe and hydrate the affected area. If it does not get better within a week, speak to a pharmacist or doctor.

How MR-Vac Injection works

MR-Vac Vaccine is a combination of two vaccines which prevent measles and rubella. They help develop immunity by initiating a mild infection. This type of infection does not cause illness but stimulates the body's immune system to produce antibodies (proteins) to protect against any future infections.
