As a teen I ended up with 5 MMR shots. All due to no record except my mother's and my memories. Lost paperwork and failure to write down the vax in the doctor's office for the first 4. For the fifth, I demanded the doc do it personally and watched him write it in my chart. By then I was nearly 16.

True, or they go away! My allergies have gotten better since my pregnancy and delivery? Such a mystery.

That's a bit of an exaggeration, don't you think?

Not all adults develop allergies, and those that do don't develop new ones "all the time."

 

It is not uncommon for adults to develop allergies, completely unrelated to vaccines.  It is also not uncommon for adults (and children, for that matter) to develop allergies as a result of vaccination.  http://www.smartvax.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=73

I'm pretty sure this is what Rrrrachel meant. It happens all the time somewhere, not necessarily to any one individual, but the explanation for why she developed the allergy could well be that she just did.

That must be nice! I wish my dairy one would disappear. Actually since I've been pregnant this second time around the eczema has almost entirely disappeared and I'm able to eat some dairy too. So maybe it will stay this way after pregnancy... om.gif

I did a catch-up schedule when I was a teenager because my mom skipped most of my childhood vaccinations. Then in my early twenties I went abroad with the Peace Corps and had: yellow fever, rabies, several meningitis strains, DTaP, MMR, and hep A/B (twinrix I think it's called?) Yellow fever, rabies, meningitis, and DTaP were given simultaneously or close to it. Have had several flu shots. I never experienced more than mild soreness at the injection site lasting a day or two.

Interesting....DTaP is only approved for kids under 7. Why did you get it as a teen?

Tdap wasn't around until 2005.

Do you happen to have an article about this? I couldn't figure out the right word combo to google, and my search returned too many results:) Very interested to hear more

Yes I am aware that Tdap was not introduced until 05, but the warning not to give DTaP to kids older than 7 and adults due to increased side effects predates that. So that was why I was suprised you had an adult pertussis vaccine back then.
