In your practice, how are children handling the first MMR at 4-5 years old? In this age range, have you seen any regression/behavioral/gastro changes following this vaccine that you are concerned about? Do those in the 6-10 age range handle the vaccine even better?
Also, have you ever associated the 5th DTaP with causing hypersensitivity and resulting food allergies, or is this dose relatively well tolerated?
When my son was 3.5, he had large, round constipation followed by encopresis for months following the varicella vaccine. He just turned five, and I am not sure when to proceed with the MMR and the second varicella vaccine. Unfortunately, he does not have a positive titer from the first varicella vaccine.
