What vaccines shed? Can the shedding cause an infant (or other unvax'd child) to get the disease?<br><br>
Thanks!<br>

I think this is the list:<br><br>
Injectable polio = not sure (I think that is why they switched to the oral polio)<br>
MMR<br>
Rotavirus<br>
chicken pox<br><br>
And yes... they shed and it can be passed on.

MMR, chickenpox, rotavirus and flumist are the vaxes currently used in the US that shed.<br><br>
Yes, the diseases can be transmitted that way.<br><br>

Nope - they currently use an injectable (IPV) polio that is NOT live and can NOT shed.<br><br>
the old oral polio (OPV) DOES shed. But is no longer used in the US, though it is in use in other parts of the world.<br><br>

They don't know how long they shed (not something they're interested in reseaching <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">) I would guess around a month.<br><br>
MMR and chicken pox are given at 12 mo or later (sometimes 15, sometimes 18mo)<br><br>
Rotavirus is 2,4,6 months<br><br>

I never did and am interested to see DD's titers in a couple years. The only reason I'm concerned now is we have a baby coming in March and I soooo don't want to deal with a sick infant with these diseases, you know? An older child, I'd be seeking them out and trying to expose them.<br><br>

This is why i find it odd that schools/daycares etc wont let you in till X days after havig pox, measles etc but you can come right in 5 minutes after you had the vax. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

How do parents who vax prevent thier younger children from getting it-they live in the same house? Is it going un noticed in the younger children and brushed off as colds or something else and not related to the older childs vaccine?

Shedding and transmission is poorly understood. And even less talked about.<br><br>
It is not an absolute by any means that the vaccinated child will be contagious. It's simply a possibility.<br><br>

yeah and peds dont talk about it. I remember my little sis gettig a vax and the ped told my mom "now dont let grandma and grandpa change her diapers for awhile (he knew both were ill) because she can expose them to these diseases." None of the vaxing parents i know have been told any such thing these days.
