 I was planning to get my 5 yr old's 1st dose of MMR at her well check this week.  She had a tick on her, ebedded in and I had to pull it off with tweezers, just a few days ago.  Should I wait another few weeks or is it ok to go ahead with the MMR? Her brother has PFAPA, which is a periodic fever/inflammatory disorder, not hereditary, but just for FYI.

I would wait until enough weeks have gone by to know there's no problem from the tick.  I forget how long you'd need to wait, but it's at least a few weeks.
