He also received the vax before we know about it at age 1, but because he received the pox vax three weeks prior, I guess it doesn't count. I'm not willing to re-expose him.
There's a contraindication with mmr and familial auto immune diseases? Have never heard of this, but auto immune diseases are prevalent in dh side of the family
