Get MMR and MMRV Vaccines On-Time, Reduce Risk of Febrile Seizures in Children

A new article in Pediatrics, titled “Timely Versus Delayed Early Childhood Vaccination and Seizures”, reconfirms that in order to best protect children from disease – and to avoid a higher risk of febrile seizures – children should be vaccinated with their first measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) or measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) dose at the recommended 12-15 months of age. Previous studies have shown that measles-containing vaccines (MMR and MMRV) occasionally may cause febrile seizures. This study demonstrates that delaying vaccination with MMR or MMRV in the second year of life (past the recommended ages of 12-15 months) could put some children at greater increased risk for febrile seizures when they receive these vaccines. In the first year of life, there is no relationship between the recommended vaccine schedule and seizures.
